TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3303:
I met Phil Ortiz at the 'Cartoonists Across America' booth during the recent 2nd Annual Long Beach Comic Con (LBCC), held in Long Beach, California!
Aditionally, Phil Ortiz was with Phil Yeh in the booth, as the booth's banner was subtitled "Two Phils" Tour. I've blogged / Facebooked about Phil Yeh before, who has re-started the magazine 'Uncle Jam'.
Phil Ortiz was kind enough to sign a recent comic book work from Bongo Comics for my son and I.
I couldn't pass up getting the issue, because as seen above, it's Homer Simpson driving the 'Fatmobile / Batmobile' on the front cover of the comic book!
Long time readers of this Blog know that I have an essay in a book on the 1960's Batman TV Show, that will be shipping soon for sale, Gotham City 14 Miles.
(Which reminds me, the book, Gotham City 14 Miles, is having its '1st Book Signing' at Monarch Cards & Comics, 4400 Heatherdowns Blvd., on December 18th from 1 to 4 p.m. in Toledo, Ohio. If YOU are near that area, check it out!)
Just a few notes on the inside pages of the comic book show above.
The pencils by Phil Ortiz fully illustrated the point that the writer of the script, Chuck Dixon, intended to portray. 'Pardon My Clunker' was well written and fully illustrated. Thanks for the signed copy, Phil!
I've already posted Phil's Biz Card above, which you can left click on and see in a larger view.
Phil's comics credit are listed here: at the Grand Comics Database.
Phil's Wikipedia Entry can be seen here: Phil Ortiz.
Until I read those two links, I wasn't aware of all that Phil has done for the past 30 years! You should check those links out further!
Too often, credits are not hi-lighted in animation, so it was good to see the listings. I'm glad that comic books have progressed over the decades to provide more credits.
