If you are a classic sci-fi fan, you probably recognized the reference in the above title, if not – look it up, you might like it. 4cade here, and we do love referencing classic genre material, but we are even more titillated about our upcoming plans for the website. We’ve been covering pop culture media going back to just after the millennium, working for websites like Comics2Film.com (now under management by Mania), ComicBookResources.com, and others, covering reporting, columns, and in-depth features. And based in San Diego, HeroJournalism has been covering Comic-Con International since 20001 – a personal highlight was by happenstance meeting Sam Raimi (on his way out of a panel), who was promoting first Spider-Man movie that was due for release the following year. Ah, memories.
But we’ve accumulated a lot of material over the years from our Comic-Con coverage – just a brief rundown of people we’ve interviewed include Marvel big shot Brian Michael Bendis, legendary Spider-Man artist John Romita Sr., V for Vendetta artist David Lloyd, classic Daredevil artist Gene Colan, Marvel and DC writer/editor Marv Wolfman, writers and producers of Fantastic Four 90s cartoon, veteran Marvel writer Tony Isabella, Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, legendary Batman writer (and creator of the Joker) Jerry Robinson – we’re sittin’ on a ton of cool stuff that we’ve wanted to publish, and finally have the venue: HeroJournalism. The site had a brief life over a decade ago, and now it’s back, baby.
So we’re anxiously anticipating our upcoming release schedule. Expect a mix of the new and the old – while we dig through our archives for classic and exclusive never-before-scene interviews, including a bombshell here or there. Can you imagine asking the creator of the Joker how he compared the performances of his character, and how he compared Ceasar Romero with Jack Nicholson, and why not Mark Hammil, and best of all – Heath Ledger? HeroJournalism asked that question. And you’ll hear the answer if you stay tuned, true believer!
