Joey Peters demonstrates the value of recycling for cartoonists:Peters mines the detritus of the Golden Age, namely the weird sequential outbursts of the mad genius Fletcher Hanks, using them to build his own comics empire from spare parts. Bringing his own contemporary sensibility to the material, Peters has actually drawn more pages using Hanks’ characters (including Fantomah, Stardust the Super Wizard, and Big Red Maclane — all in the public domain), than Hanks himself did in his brief, meteoric career. Peters’ newest Hanksian saga, The Super Wizard Returns, Chapter. 1, is now available as a digital download on Comixology.
The Boston Comics Roundtable brings local cartoonists and writers together to collaborate, workshop and socialize. Comic creators of all skill levels are welcome at our weekly meetings in Cambridge's Harvard Square, or join the discussion on our Google Group.
