Comics Creators in the Wild 11

Another installment of our popular feature where we showcase vintage photographs of popular comic book creators from days gone by. This is sometimes known as “Stan Lee and friends” given how often Lee was photographed over the years.

  1. In the 2nd photo down, “Renee Witterstaetter at a party”, who is the man who’s face is barely in the shot? Roger Stern? Rom Brevoort, or Mark Gruenwald?


  2. In the promotional photo of Kirby in a suit coat, is he “working” on a Tales of Suspense with Iron Man cover? What issue is that? Do we know? I can’t make it out.


  3. The magazine on Ralph Macchio’s desk is the UK ( and not Marvel UK) published Warrior# 1, featuring Marvelman and V for Vendetta both by Alan Moore. In my humble opinion, the most important comic/ magazine of the 1980s.
