Episode: Pint O' Comics Episode 224 - Memorializing with Mitch Hallock

 Mitch Hallock, "King of the Nerds" and organizer of Terrificon, joined Sir Jon for this show to remember two giants of comic book history that passed beyond the mortal coil within 7 days of each other. Neal Adams revolutionized the comic art form in the late 60's and early 70's, breaking open set layout standards and bringing a fresh look to comic books, becoming a force of nature hard to match. George Perez did things with comic book crowds few other artists have ever been able to duplicate, and his work was in demand right up to the day he retired. It was a rough week for fans, and we didn't even get a moment to bring up James Bama. An hour of retrospective fun here on Pint O' Comics.
