TCJ Audio Archive: Roy Crane and Chester Gould

Posted by on January 11th, 2010 at 7:41 AM

New to The Comics Journal Audio Archive! One of the coolest finds in the cassette archive is a cassette containing two 1961 episodes from The Cartoonist’s Art, a radio program hosted by then-Bringing Up Father cartoonist Verne Greene for what was then WRVR in New York City. Appearing on these episodes were Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould, and Wash Tubbs/Buz Sawyer cartoonist Roy Crane. Enjoy these near-forgotten moments from the history of comics!

    Nice finds. Crane is one of my favorites. Check out the long (48 min.) talk by Jack Kirby from the 1970 San Diego Con.

    The talk goes a long way towards explaining Mark Evanier’s recent comment about Kirby. Mark Evanier: “I do believe that some human beings on this planet are just smarter than other people.”
    Kirby comments in the talk on Gould: “There are people who draw better pictures than Chester Gould,but Da Vinci couldn’t draw a better Dick Tracy.”
