Famous Fanmail #63 Kurt Busiek

Filed under: Famous Fanmail — Doorman @ 12:33 pm

You may not be surprised to learn that most people in the comic business grew up reading comic books. However, you might be interested in knowing what they were reading. Here’s a look at “Famous Fanmail”!

Here’s another letter from Kurt Busiek, creator of Astro City. This letter was printed in Machine Man #13 (cover date: February 1980). I completely agree with his analysis of the original Kirby-version of Machine Man. Kirby had our hero, Aaron Stack, developing all kinds of abilities to get out of whatever jam he was in. Way too powerful and certainly needed his abilities reduced in order to make him more “relatable”.
