King Kurt!

I've known Kurt Busiek for a zillion years. We're not in touch regularly but he's one of those friends with whom you can pick up the thread any time you talk.

In addition to being a prolific writer, he's also a great idea man (he came up with the rationale for Jean Gray's rebirth), critic (he was the first person to bust Alan Moore for his "homage" to the novel Super Folks in "Whatever Happened to the Man of Steel") and keen observer of the scene. He's also a fanboy, which is how we met; in a couple of apas together, back in the Jurrasic Era, I think.

I shouldn't have been surprised that Tom Spurgeon chose to interview him (though I was). Check it out!
