Walt Simonson and Joel Pollack
Joel Pollack of Big Planet Comics and I were talking today, and Walt Simonson's name came up in passing. Joel met him when Simonson was working at the Maryland Book Exchange, and drew a sign for their science fiction section that Joel asked about. Joel says that when Simsonson decided to go to NYC to make it in comics, Joel passed along Howard Chaykin's phone number. A little bit of comics history there for you, brought up by the fact that NYC Graphic Novelists blog has a Simonson interview up this week.
