Here are a pair of additional vintage interviews, one from Stan Lee and one from Roy Thomas, which first saw print in the long running magazine CARTOONIST PROFILES in its November 1969 issue. This is right at the end point of the Silver Age, at a time when Jack Kirby had relocated his family to the West Coast and was looking for a way out. But it’s also a good snapshot as to just what people, creators and readers, were thinking and focused on during those days. One of the aspects of all of this that we fans often tend to over look is that, to the practitioners of these vintage eras, they weren’t so much trying to produce art as they were trying to put food on teh table and keep the lights on. The fact that they often succeeded in making art along the way was somewhat incidental–though nobody was actively trying to give anything other than their best.
