The Paragon Beginning Pt. 2

Continuing Bill Black’s introspective look at starting Paragon/AC Comics and why he became an artist in the first place, Part Two discusses how DC’s SHOWCASE No. 4 in 1956 inspired him to continue making homemade comics. “Eat Pie, Pig!” a Wonder Wart Hog war cry, heralds Black’s joining the staff of THE CHARLATAN, a renegade, anti-establishment college humor magazine. This was a learning experience that directly led to the creation of Paragon Publications. 1956 thru 1966 is covered in this episode.
