Review: The Longhorn (1951)

The 1950s were transformative for the western genre. Television was changing the game forever, with quality visual storytelling at home now competing with theatrical films for the attention spans of viewers. On the big screen, westerns were growing in scope (literally and figuratively) and taking on more complex nuances. This was even felt in the B-westerns of the era as the white hats and black hats were giving way to more complicated emotions, situations, and relationships.

A Conversation with Writer and Indie Comix Legend JAN STRNAD - Part Three

Image
Cereal At Midnight sits down with writer and indie comix giant Jan Strnad to talk about the early days of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror fandom, his years at Disney TV Animation, writing Star Wars, and his decades-long working collaboration with illustrator Richard Corben. (Continued from  Part 2 ) Cereal At Midnight:  Given everything that we've talked about and your insight into the world of big franchises, corporate mandates, and executives who aren't familiar with the source material that serves as the foundation for their tentpoles, the value of independent creation seems more important than ever. Can you talk to me about the importance of underground comics and creators, both when you were first starting out and as you see the medium today?  Jan Strnad: I grew up with comics published under the Comics Code Authority and only discovered the pre-code comics in my late teens. The EC line in particular blew my mind because the comics were so literate, sometimes adapting
