Anatomy Of A Comic Strip With Brian Collins
Brian Collins joins us to explore his grandfather's comic strip legacy. Kreigh Collins was a great illustrator that landed a syndication deal for his Girl Adventure strip Mitzi McCoy. He spent the run of the strip experimenting with story tones from humor to straight up noir , finally resulting in leaving Mitzi's stories and focusing on Mitzi's adventuring ancestor. A Prince Valliant sort of character Kevin The Bold.
The new book from Lost Art Books, Mitzi McCoy- The Lost Art Of Keigh Collins Vol 1 is an interesting examination of an artist trying to gather his audience and finding the right mix to make a comic strip hit.
