Presenting our first-ever live recording of X-Reads: An X-Men Experience! The generous producers of Twin Cities Con invited Chris & Chandler to record in front of a live audience and interview the legendary Larry Hama. Together they continue the exploration of the 90’s Fatal Attraction crossover with Wolverine #75.
Larry Hama is an American comic-book writer, artist, actor, and musician who has worked in the fields of entertainment and publishing since the 1960s. During the 1970s, he was seen in minor roles on the TV shows M*A*S*H and Saturday Night Live and appeared on Broadway in two roles in the original 1976 production of Stephen Sondheim’s Pacific Overtures. He is best known to American comic book readers as a writer and editor for Marvel Comics, where he wrote the licensed comic book series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, based on the Hasbro toy line.
He has also written for the series Wolverine, Nth Man: The Ultimate Ninja, and Elektra. He co-created the character Bucky O’Hare, which was developed into a comic book, a toy line, and television cartoon. (sourced from Wikipedia) Wolverine #75 was published in November 1993. In that same month:
- The top film at the time: Addams Family Values
- The top song at the time: “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” by Meatloaf
- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat opens in New York
