Interview: The Career Of John Romita, Jr...In His Own Words
Oct 06, 2019
There are certain things you can always count on when it comes to comics - things that are mainstays across generations.
- Marvel vs. DC will always be THE go-to rivalry.
- No one stays dead in comics forever.
- With great power comes great responsibility.
- Archie will never quite settle on Betty or Veronica.
- Crossovers are as imminent as death and taxes.
- John Romita, Jr.
Since the late 1970s, John Romita, Jr. has been a constant in the comic book industry. His four-decade run at Marvel bridged generations, his co-creations Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl infiltrated the larger pop culture landscape, and his current run at DC Comics is destined to extend his career in comics well into the future.
In Part 1 of our interview above, Romita, Jr. takes us through the earliest parts of his career. From stepping out of the shadow of his legendary father (John Romita, Sr.) to tackling the classic "Demon in a Bottle" story for Iron Man. Journey with PREVIEWsworld as Romita provides an oral history of the ups, downs, and triumphs of making myths and entertaining fans throughout the years.
Stay tuned for Part 2, in which Romita talks about his first run on X-Men and much more!
Face it. Thou shalt lie.
