Big Glee looks at the origins of "Origins of Marvel Comics."



Veteran comics artist Dan Spiegle died at age 96 last weekend. His friend and collaborator Mark Evanier has a personal remembrance here.

Spiegle drew many of Gold Key and Western Comics' TV-related properties during the  1950s and 60s, including Lost in Space, Green Hornet and Sea Hunt, along with Korak: Son of Tarzan.

I encountered his work later, in the 1970s and 80s, when he started providing art to DC Comics' titles such as Brave and the Bold, Batman and Teen Titans Spotlight.
