    Happy to pair this up with the unpublished [George] Pérez pencils to the Gullivar Jones splash from Monsters Unleashed #8. That job could’ve really benefited from [Frank] Giacoia’s inks, as this house ad shows.

    News: Roger Stern Interview From CBA #12

    An entertaining and eminently capable comics writer, Roger Stern is perhaps best recalled for his work on the Superman strip in Action Comics, Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Dr. Strange, and an especially memorable collaboration with John Byrne on Captain America in 1980-81. What you may not know is Sterno's career stretches back to Charlton (sorta) and the fanzines. The following E-mail interview took place in January, 2001.


    CBA: Do you recall meeting John Byrne for the first time? What was your relationship and did you collaborate early on material?
    Roger Stern: Yes, that would have been the July 4th weekend of 1974. John and I had corresponded prior to that, and I think we might have even chatted on the phone once or twice, but that was our first face-to-face meeting. By that time, of course, we had already worked together on the Rog-2000 strip which wound up appearing in CPL #11. Bob (Layton), John, our pal Larry Brnicky, and I all converged on Duffy Vohland's apartment in Brooklyn just prior to the '74 Seuling Con, and that's where John and I met. (Anyone who had any drawing ability wound up inking backgrounds on a George Perez story for Monsters Unleashed.) The reason we were all in New York was that we were premiering a double-issue of CPL—in the guise of the Charlton Portfolio—at the convention. In fact, it was at that convention that Nick Cuti saw the art for the first Rog-2000 strip. And that led to John's getting work at Charlton, drawing Rog as a backup in E-Man. That led to Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, Doomsday +1, and Space: 1999... and, indirectly, to "Iron Fist" at Marvel.

    For info on who else contributed to the above issues of Monsters Unleashed, check out and

    NOTE - There's a discrepancy in the credits for #8 - your checklist has Rich Buckler as a penciller (since Buckler laid out the rejected splash page?), the GCD listing has Buckler as an inker on the Perez-pencilled tale, while the Perez Archives listing doesn't list Buckler at all. Sometimes the GCD listings get stuff wrong - note that their listing for #7 makes no mention of the Perez/Giacoia illo of Gullivar Jones.
