Between 1966 and 1985 a generation of writers emerged that changed the face of American comic books forever. Many were fans every bit as much as they were professionals, creative artists working from an understanding of what felt right on the comics page forged by years of close scrutiny above and beyond the final sales figures. Some were tempered by exposure to new waves in cinema, new voices in writing, and new comics from Europe and Japan. Coming to comics at a time when the financial awards were poor and the chance for ownership of what one created was even poorer, these writers breathed new life into the dying icons of the past. Writers like Len Wein, Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Harlan Ellison, Marv Wolfman, Denny O'Neil, Mark Evanier, Mike Baron, and Alan Moore infused comics like X-Men, Captain America, and Swamp Thing with a progressive social outlook that ran directly in the face of decades of simplistic might-makes-right pseudo-moralizing. Some made their careers in other writing fields but toiled in comics out of a sense of loyalty and passion; others became comic book writers just out of their teens and never left. They were America's comic book children come home. The Comics Journal Library: The Writers celebrates the ascendancy of writer-driven mainstream comic books with a series of revealing, in-depth interviews, many conducted at the height of their influence.… (mere)

I normally avoid The Comics Journal like the plague; their articles and interviews are generally in-depth, but the attitude of arrogance and elitism drips off every page, and this ever-present sense of disdain is commented on by a few of the interviewees herein. But when I saw the list of writers whose interviews were reprinted in this volume - Chris Claremont, Gerry Conway, Steve Englehart, Steve Gerber, Archie Goodwin, Alan Moore, Denny O'Neil, Len Wein, Marv Wolfman, and Harlan Ellison (including the infamous interview I'd first heard about ten years ago, and which has just this past September led to a second lawsuit - oy!) - I figured that the combined awesomeness of all these writers would probably overcome TCJ's general grossness. This turned out to mostly be the case, although I laughed to see how the interview with Marv Wolfman starts off:

I have seen from you spectacularly good material and absolutely terrible material, and the divergence annoys me, because it indicates that you are capable [of] attaining a much higher level than you are currently reaching.

Granted, I'll give you that there's a really interesting question in there about excellence and its presence or absence in works by the same artist. But I imagine Marv sitting down to this interview, and the first thing out of the interviewer's mouth is essentially, "Boy, you've written some complete shit." Ah well - no one ever accused TCJ of tact, I suppose. ( )
