  • JMS Origin Article

    Excellent article with pics I'm pretty sure nobody here has ever seen.

    At 57, Straczynski is a figure for whom the nerd classes are already polishing a boulder on the Mount Rushmore of science-fiction history, somewhere near Gene Roddenberry and Rod Serling. His list of credits—comic books, novels, theater, journalism, radio, film, TV—is long enough to cramp your finger as you scroll down his Wikipedia entry.
    ETA: OOH! Clips from his college paper! http://www.sdcitybeat.com/sandiego/b...ily-aztec.html

    Did I mention, excellent?

        JMS posted a comment to the Daily Aztec page:

        J. MIchael Straczynski À Works at Screenwriter

        Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. The so-called comedic writing is sophomoric and cliched, relying on slamming together random images and nonsensical phrases. Self-indulgent, over-written and over-wrought. That the author was 19, with a mental age of 6, is no excuse. Clearly, this guy is never going to have a career as a writer. What the hell was he thinking?

          I enjoyed the "personal journal" one.

            Good article, and it confirms the rumors that JMS is/was haunted by the ghost of Groucho Marx or could be a denizen of Radio Free Oz.

            At any rate I'm sure he was just young and secure in the belief that one day he would grow out of it...

            Any day now.

              Great article!
              Plus: The color picture of JMS from his Sony Bono era
              Minus: No mention of JMS's first published play.
