It features in-depth examinations of each era of the characters’ extensive history: The Golden Age (beginning with the Shield, the first patriotic super-hero, who pre-dated Captain America by a full year), the Silver Age (spotlighting those offbeat, campy Mighty Comics issues, and The Fly and Jaguar), the Bronze Age (with the Red Circle line, and the !mpact imprint published by DC Comics), up to the Modern Age, with its Dark Circle imprint (featuring such fan-favorites series as “The Fox” by Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel). Plus: Learn what “MLJ” stands for! Uncover such rarities as the Mighty Crusaders board game, and the Shadow’s short-lived career as a spandex-clad superhero!

Paul Castiglia has written, edited and promoted comics for such diverse publishers as Archie, DC, Dark Horse, Event, Antarctic Press and others. His credits include Archie’s Weird Mysteries, DC Showcase, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tex Avery comics, Sonic the Hedgehog, Rise: Comics Against Bullying from and War of the Independents #4. Coming soon is a back-up story for KING, from Blacklist Press. Paul is also a film historian who speaks at classic film screenings, and a movie producer whose first film, Bowery Rhapsody, a documentary about the Dead End Kids, East Side Kids and Bowery Boys is currently in post-production. Also upcoming from Paul is the book Scared Silly – a compendium of reviews of classic horror-comedy movies. Paul will be signing copies of the TwoMorrows Publishing book, The MLJ Companion, co-written with Rik Offenberger and Jon B. Cooke, which charts the history of Archie’s superheroes, and includes a cover by colored by Glenn Whitmore.

Glenn Whitmore is a graduate of the Kubert School (1987) and has established himself as a reliable professional colorist in the comics business. His first assignment was DC Comics’ Hawk & Dove mini-series. Soon after, he became the colorist on the Superman titles between 1988 and 2000 including The Death of Superman, The Return of Superman, The Marriage of Superman & Lois Lane as well as other DC titles like Flash, Justice Society and Power of Shazam.

NJ – Combat Jacks #1 Signing

000000000000000_combat-jacks

Press Release:

Mark McKenna makes his triumphant return to East Side Mags for the re-release of Combat Jacks #1 but this time – it’s the Director’s Cut! He’ll be signing copies of Combat Jacks #1, sketching on blank covers and hanging out from 1pm-5pm on Saturday, October 15!

About Combat Jacks #1:
In the 23rd-century, a space marine squad is sent to investigate the disappearance of prison terraformers on newfound planet Maia. What they find is much worse then they imagined. The oxygen-rich atmosphere created by the planet’s pumpkin-like vegetation makes Maia a perfect place for settlement – and the perfect flytrap!

About Mark:
Mark McKenna is a 30 year veteran of the comic book industry. In that time he has worked on Batman, Wolverine, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and more recently on Star Wars, counting over 550 comics in all.

Mark’s more recent work can be seen in Legendary Picture Books PACIFIC RIM movie prequel, Dark Horse Comics Star Wars-The Old Republic: The Lost Suns. In 2012 his work on the online web comic titled “Star Wars: Blood of the Empire“ was collected into an 84 page trade paperback and was the lynchpin for the 2012 released Bio-ware online video game, The Old Republic.

His children’s book series Banana Tail and Friends is a labor of love that he created when his daughter was four and had a newborn son. His most recent Banana Tail project, The BOOnana Tail Halloween Special was released for Halloween 2014 and was treated as an “all ages” comic project that continues to grow with children that had the original storybooks read to them as younger children. The other Banana Tail titles include; Banana Tail’s Tales and Activities, Banana Tail’s Colorful Adventure and the soon-to-be-released Banana Tail and the Checkerboard Jungle

Mark has also created, written, inked and published the Sci Fi/Horror COMBAT JACKS comic book mini series. COMBAT JACKS #3… “The Saga Continues” was recently published and is now available under Mark’s Banana Tale Press imprint.
