1,000 Comic Books You Must Read includes Supes, Spidey, Archie… and colitis

I remember the day I met Tony Isabella back in the mid-1970s.

I was in the back of my friend Bob Pinaha’s brown Ford Pinto—the car in which I later learned to drive—and we drove to Newark International Airport to pick up Tony for an appearance at a comic book convention we organized.

I was a star-struck teen fanboy—Isabella was a writer and editor for Marvel Comics! How cool was that?

Wish I could remember something that Tony and Bob discussed in the car that day, but after “Hello,” the rest is just a blur.

We’ve crossed paths a few times since then, most recently when Isabella wrote a more than kind review of my Will Eisner biography for the Comics Buyers Guide. And now it’s my opportunity to return the favor.

Hear it now!AUDIO EXCERPT: “Superheroes have always been a big part of it but I wanted to show how many different kind of comics there have been. I wanted to show every genre; there is a comic in there on colitis!”

Tony just published a new book, 1,000 Comic Books You Must Read, and it’s a four-color, four-star, polished gem. I’ve had such a good time reliving so many fun comics of my acne-blemished past while paging through this coffee table book. If you love comics, you’ve gotta get this guide. (Website)
