Gweek is Boing Boing’s podcast about comic books, science fiction & fantasy, video games, board games, tools, gadgets, apps, and other neat stuff.
In episode 15, I interviewed designer and comic book historian Craig Yoe. He's been called "the freaking Indiana Jones of comics" a "twisted archivist of the ridiculous and the sublime," and "Dr. Seuss on acid!"
Craig was the vice president, general manager and creative director for Jim Henson and the Muppets, and was senior designer at the legendary toy think tank Marvin Glass & Associates. Today Craig is the co-creative director of YOE! Studio, which he runs with his partner, Clizia Gussoni.
As the premier comic book historian in the United States, Craig has edited over 30 books about comic books and illustration, including Krazy Kat & the Art of George Herriman, Amazing 3-D Comics, Archie: A Celebration Of America's Favorite Teenagers, The Golden Collection Of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics, Dan DeCarlo's Jetta, The Art Of Ditko, Boody: The Bizarre Comics Of Boody Rogers, And Secret Identity: The Fetish Art Of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Shuster.
I spoke with Craig in his studio in upstate New York.
At the end of the podcast, The Hokum Scorchers return with another song, "Pick Poor Robin Clean."
