Comics Journal Interviews Michael Gross

Terrific interview with Michael Gross, former NatLamp art director, at The Comics Journal. Michael went to Hollywood after his Lampoon days and was one of the producers of “Ghostbusters”, “Heavy Metal: The Movie”, and many others. Highly recommended for fans of the golden age of the National Lampoon.

Henry Beard Talks at Length About National Lampoon

How did I miss this? Almost two years ago, Mike Sacks interviewed National Lampoon cofounder Henry Beard for the website Splitsider.com (link). It’s the interview I’ve always hoped he would give. A lot has been written about National Lampoon over the years, and all of the major players have told their stories, except Beard. Until

A New Lampoon Book

Well, I guess that’s a pretty good reason to curtail the hiatus briefly. There have been more than a few books written about National Lampoon and the people who worked there, but none of them puts the history of the magazine and its spin-offs in context the way Ellin Stein’s That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick:

Going on Hiatus for a While

It’s been fun, but I’ve pretty much lost interest in maintaining this site. I started it in order to learn how to make a website. But I’m long retired from doing any of that kind of work. I’m not going to take the site down. I’ll leave it up indefinitely for those who can get
