    I read the article a couple of weeks ago, and, yeah, it was a great article on comics in general. I'm glad it spotlighted many great works that, hopefully, people will seek out. Nice touch: JMS quotes, of course.

    I guess my teacher (Mrs. Fraser) read the magazine for the articles too

    Yup. After his military service, he joined Playboy in 1956 as a writer, photographer and cartoonist.

    When I was in grade four we had to copy poems to practice our penmanship. One of the poets we often used was Shel Silverstein. When I was older I looked up the name and was surprised that he wrote for Playboy. Is that the same person?

    "Spaghetti, spaghetti, all over the place
    Up to my elbows up to my face...."

    or

    "Sarah Cynthia Silvia Stout
    Would not take the garbage out
    She'd scour the pots and scrape the pans,
    Candy the yams and spice the hams
    And tho her father would scream and shout,
    She simply would not take the garbage out...."


    (It's sad that I memorized those poems )

    What with the utter lack of interest that the surgically modified, heavily airbrushed women inspire in me, yeah, the articles would be a preferable alternative within the magazine.

    It's been ages since I read an issue but I used to enjoy the cartoons a lot, too.

    started a topic JMS quoted in Playboy Magazine

    JMS quoted in Playboy Magazine

    With thanks to GkarsEye at B5TV.com who reports that the April Playboy quotes JMS several times on Comics in the latest issue.

    From Playboy.com:
    Of Maus and Supermen -- Like jazz, which began as lowbrow entertainment, the comic book -- or as it's known uptown, the graphic novel -- has become a major cultural influence whose touch can be felt in Hollywood, literature and video games. If you haven't looked at comics lately, here's all you need to know about what's been happening with this distinctly American art form. By Robert Levine and Scott Alexander
