‘Comic Book People’ Kickstarter Offers Hundreds of Candid Photos of Legendary Creators

Comic Book People

 

Eisner Award administrator and longtime comic book industry presence Jackie Estrada recently launched a Kickstarter to publish a book collecting hundreds of pictures of legendary writers, artists, editors and other comic book folks at various conventions and other functions in the ’70s and ’80s. Featuring rare candid photographs of Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, Jack Kirby, Stan Lee, Will Eisner, Carl Barks, Bob Kane, Harvey Kurtzman, C. C. Beck, Wally Wood, Moebius, Alan Moore, Osamu Tezuka, Gardner Fox, Curt Swan, Joe Kubert, John Romita, Alex Toth, Al Williamson, Francoise Mouly, the Hernandez brothers and many more, it’s no surprise that the Kickstarter has already met its goal. But you still have time to contribute so you can get your hands on a copy, and there are plenty of other great rewards.

Titled Comic Book People: Photographs From The 1970s and 1980s, the book will be a hardcover, high quality coffee table edition containing over 600 candid pictures, most in black and white, from some of the most exciting times in comics. From the Kickstarter page:

These are rare shots from the days before comics and conventions were big pop culture events, when the founding fathers of the artform were still among us and today’s top talents were just aspiring young pros trying to get noticed. If you were there, this is a great way to recall fond memories. If you weren’t, these photos are a candid and unfiltered picture of a simpler time, familiar but far away.
