The Journal presents a very special and long overdue feature interview with noted EC and Cracked artist John Severin, conducted by Gary Groth. Sporting an original cover by Severin, the interview discusses all facets of Severin's career, from his earliest days landing a spot in Harvey Kurtzman's studio and playing a major role in the success of EC's war comics, to helping shape the early days of Mad magazine, to achieving "living legend" status at Cracked magazine, and a helluva lot in between (including a long stint with Warren publications). Backing up Severin is (then-) newcomer Tony Millionaire, who first gained notoriety with his syndicated weekly strip Maakies, and subsequently caught on with his sleeper hit Sock Monkey series from Dark Horse. Find out why comics used to be better, liquor goes hand in hand with cartooning, and more. Plus, the most important news and reviews in the industry, making the Journal a resource you can't afford to miss!
