Steve Gan so admired Steve Ditko

Santos Gan changed his name to Steve, as a tribute to Steve Ditko.
Steve Gan is the co-creator of Ang Panday and Marvel's Star Lord, main character of the GOTG.


Gan loved the pencil work of John Buscema's Conan so much that he hung on to art work for some time. He did not want to ink it. Marvel agents were sent to retrieve the art work.

Alan Moore lampoons Boris Johnson

Alan Moore has published a poem, lampooning Johnson.

Alan Moore wrote:

“That same year a Bullingdon club clown
swears that he’ll leave fire services alone,
then, three years later, cuts them to the bone,
says, ‘Get stuffed’ as ten stations are closed down
and twenty-seven engines fade from view,
he also shall endure forevermore.
His treacheries caught in time’s amber, for
disgrace and shame are both eternal, too.”

Happy Birthday Walter "Thor" Simonson

Happy Birthday Walter Simonson!


He had a great run on Thor.

He once challenged to John Buscema to draw a tuff point of view, when Buscema did a chalk talk--to give pointers to the Marvel artists. Of course, Buscema drew the scene in a breeze.
