Marc Tyler Nobleman interviews your childhood!
Hey! You! Read! This!
Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman (2008) and an upcoming book on Batman/Bill Finger (2012), has gathered information, pictures and interviews on some of the greatest ’70s and ’80s comic book and cartoon related pop culture! In his own words:
One of my favorite questions is “Where are they now?”
One of my favorite periods in entertainment is the 1970s and 1980s.
And so begins a massive, often startling, and at times eclectic series I have been working on in between and around since December 2009: an oral history of (mostly) superhero entertainment of the 1970s and 1980s. It consists of 99 interviews with the people who were there, spread over 71 posts, including introductions to each of the 10 subseries.
Technically, not all 99 kind souls in this feature can be called “lost,” but most have no other interviews online and nearly none of the photos and images you’ll see have been published before. I wanted the focus to be superhero/cartoon performers you remember but have read little to nothing about. This includes actors, writers, musicians, and even water skiers. Some of their recollections are laugh-out-loud funny. Others are heartbreaking.
Go to his blog RIGHT NOW and you’ll read stories and interviews with Super Friends voice actors, writers and production staff; Scooby Doo voice actors and theme song singers and producers; actors from Superman the Movie; and so so many more.
What a treasure of information. Read more here:
