A Tip of the Ole Hat to Stan the Man

By Publisher Dan Herman

About twenty minutes ago I got a call from our Managing Editor, Sabrina, who is always upbeat, but from her tone of voice I immediately knew something had happened. “What’s wrong?” I enquired,” And the answer came back, “Stan Lee just passed away.”

Although Stan was 95 and had just gone through some very trying times, for some illogical, silly reason I never thought he would die. There are many opinions about Stan the Man; stories about who did what, what Jack Kirby did, who should get credit for a story, character, or idea, but it’s undeniable that without Stan the Silver Age never would have had the power and impact that it did and still does.

I won’t use this brief memoriam to reflect on Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The X-Men, Thor, or the many other titles he worked on. The arguments and debates about the era will never end but for those of us who love comics, and count me among them, Stan was a very vital, and visible part of the Silver Age of comics. He will never be equaled. So, to Stan, wherever he may be now, Excelsior!

Author Spotlight: Mother Goth!

Mother Goth was busy preparing for her favorite night of the year, but we managed to catch her for a few brief questions...

What's your inspirations for some of your spooky rhymes?

All my poems are autobiographical. Mary Had a Little Beast? Me. The decapitated shepherdess in Little Bo Dead? Also me. The murderous unicorn in If You’re Stabby and You Know It? In truth, Stabby was one of my dearly departed husbands, but as they say, write about what you know… or who you kill. I’ll leave it to my dear readers to determine which is which.
 
Who is your favorite author?
Alas, poor Edgar. How I loved him. It was my crow that finally did him in. A word to the wise—crows do not like being mistaken for ravens.   
 
What is your favorite part of being an artist? 
Tracing around the bodies.
 
Where do you like to create your art? 
Wakes. The reference is so very good. 
 
What music (if any?) do you like to listen to while you work on your Rhymes? 
A nice upbeat requiem mass or howls of the tortured.
 
What's your favorite kind of bat?
The Louisville Slugger. Handy when one is fresh out of knives and arsenic.
 
What's your favorite part of Halloween?
The convenience of leaving the skeletons out on the lawn.
 
How will you be spending your Halloween? 
In the cemetery, digging up a date.
 
Favorite spooky movie?
My home movies. Or “evidence” as the prosecuting lawyers call it.

Help Kickstart Ghita: An Erotic Treasury Volume II

Help us help you!

We're joining the Kickstarter crowd for Ghita: An Erotic Treasury Volume II!

Why Kickstarter?

Ghita: An Erotic Treasury Volume I was VERY expensive to produce. It is a huge tome (over 17 inches long!) and because we are committed to quality, it has all the bells and whistles a Frank Thorne fan could want. However, we can't publish Volume II without help!

If we are successful with this Kickstarter (and only then- if we don't make the amount needed you never pay a cent!) Hermes Press will publish the final volume of the Frank Thorne's Ghita and Erotic Treasury with the last two Ghita stories along with a bevy of extras. All reproduced from Frank's original pen and ink originals. You will get to see all the original brush strokes and any corrections made to the originals!
