Tell us Jim, how did you get addicted to comics?
I got in to comics when I was a little kid, I kind of learned how to read by reading comics. I must of been 7 o8 when I started buying comic books.
Did you have a older sibling who influenced you to get in to comics or did you just pick one up one day and you knew that was it ?
No, not really. I used to watch Sesame street and the Electric company on PBS , the Electric Company had these spider man segments on it, it was this live action thing were was guy dressed in a spider man suit going on adventures. And that’s really when I fell in love with Spider man, so naturally when I found out that there were spider man comics I started collecting comics and then it started..
So I guess spider man was kind of the reason I got in to all of this.
Wow, that’s a good story. So from that point on you became an addict to collect Spider man, but were you also drawing at the time?
I started to buy comics and then after that I started to draw my own version of comics, and started creating my own books and just stapling them together.
