Black and White Wednesday: "How a Comic Is Created" Parts 1 and 2 by Paul Levitz

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove's love for comics was always so strong that I always wanted to create 'em myself. I wanted to draw, write, everything--and eventually I did start making my own comics (on typing paper, natch). Eventually I got into self-publishing, and now I'm writing for lots of great small press comicbook publishers--and it all started with tutorials like these from Amazing World of DC Comics (issues 1 and 2). Pros like Paul Levitz gave us creatives-in-training the low-down on how things really worked, and to this day Ol' Groove appreciates and treasures articles like these...


  1. Very interesting. I read the Unknown Soldier periodically, and I assume these changes paid off since it lasted until the early 80's.

    I wasn't a regular reader of any of the war comics back then, so I was wondering how those titles generally did during that time sales-wise. They always had good stories and artwork, particularly GI Combat which was a Dollar Comic for a while. I figured they did well in the 50's and 60's, maybe tailed off in the 70's.
