The most INTERESTING man in comics

In an industry like comics, which is full to over-flowing with interesting characters both inside the books and outside of the comic book pages, it’s not easy to decide who “the most interesting man” of all really is… but our friends from the Comic Geek Speak podcast messageboard have attempted to do just that in a heated discussion thread.

Not the most talented. Not the most creative. Not the most awarded. But the most interesting.

As you can probably expect a number of great gents are brought up. Including such gods of comics as Steve Ditko, Dr. William Moulton Marston, Alan Moore, Wally Wood, Charles Schulz… and (gasp) even yours truly! Heated discussions ensue, leaving two creators standing head and shoulders above the rest, but the discussion ends in a tie. Curses!

So with apologies to our beloved Grant Morrison who will have to settle for the runner up prize… it’s time to break the stalemate by casting a vote of my own.

The “Most Interesting Man In Comics” goes to famous comics innovator, escape artist & magician, publisher, historian, musician, sharp-dresser, and production artist on Raiders of the Lost Ark

The legendary Jim Steranko!

    As much as I love Grant. My vote —

    STERANKO!

    For the suits, the hair, the art style and…

    …If you chained up Grant Morrison, put him in a chest and threw him off the pier into the East River, all you’d get is drowned, dead Scotsman.

    Do it to Steranko, you get a few anxious moments of silence as the waters settle Then…

    “…wait…wait…is that an air bubble?”

    ” Look rising like God from beneath the waves…is that a man?

    A man, indeed. STERANKO!
