A Look Back

Here’s a recent YouTube interview filmed at the 2015 Florida Supercon with Supercon Mike where Jim talks about his past and some comic book industry history. He tells the story of the acquisition of the Gold Key characters for VALIANT, the early days of the direct market, the creation of GI Joe, Secret Wars and other stuff. -JayJay

    Thanks for posting. I’ve been looking for more Jim Shooter interviews on YouTube and elsewhere and was surprised to find a lot of great, lengthy and recent interviews out there. Not only does Jim write a great blog post but he also does a great live interview and knows how to tell good stories, naturally. I’ll provide some links here of ones I highly recommend to anyone who’s enjoyed Jim’s blog:

    Lengthy sit-down video interview by ValiantFans.com, over 2 hours long in multiple parts, including Jim getting an enviable award and gift at the end, from June 2016:

    This is really great, interesting stuff. And Jim speaks so well off the top of his head about things that happened ages ago.
