Stephen started the discussion on Iron Man and his apparent new popularity. What has re-vitalizing this character?

Then we move on to an off-topic conversation regarding our favorite Ray Harryhausen films.

(This show was pulled from the middle of the overall episode 82.)

We start the week off with the BOP (the bottom of the pile) and then close out with some listener emails and some news.

The "meat" of the show (the middle part) was clipped and will be posted as KK 82 part 2, probably on Thursday!

Has anyone seen Jon? We're getting worried! We haven't heard from him!

I've long had a certain fascination with--and pity for--Max Fleischer. Fascination because he advanced the art and technique of animation when his future rival Walt Disney still struggled with the rudiments of the form in Kansas City. Fleischer's cartoons were fluid and naturalistic when most "animated" cartoons still looked like glorified comic strips. He experimented with sound a full four years before Walt made STEAMBOAT WILLIE, and invented a 3D process (utilizing miniature sets, built and painted to match the "cartoony" look of the foreground characters) that seemed ingeniously simple in comparison to Disney's monstrous multiplane camera.

Yet despite the great strides he took in the field of animation, he would not receive proper recognition for it for decades....

Jon's first KK blog post

I'm back from vacation, and I'm ready to rule the world!!!!

I'm going to try and help Bruce with the blog postings... much to Bruce's chagrin. :)

So in this initial blog posting I'd like to encourage everyone to visit the Comic Book Wiki

So, in closing, I'd also like to ask everyone to give the KK crew suggestions on topics you'd like to hear us discuss, debate, and destroy. :)

Please comment!
