From the Solicitation...

    Hey Jerry, been loving your commissions and am looking forward to Modern Masters. Are you going to be at Wizard World Chicago this year? I would love to get some info about getting a commission or sketch from you.

    Mark, I am not going to be attending the Wizardworld show this year, sorry. Hard to get time off to travel, though I always loved the Chicago show and the fans. I always felt that that was my "home base" you know? Best, JER

    I just finished reading Modern Masters last week on my trip to California. It was excellent. I'm really glad Jerry was so forthright about the industry and what he likes and doesn't like about aspects of the work.

    I'm looking forward to many more years of seeing your art grace the pages of comics.

    I just read Modern Masters this week on my travels. Outstanding insight into one of the best artists in the industry. It was so refreshing to read honest responses. I hope we see a lot of Jerry's work in comics in 2008!

    Thanks for the nice comments on the book. I have followed and enjoyed your work over these many years as well.

    Thanks as well. I sometimes am known to speak my mind, but getting it out is the best therapy. I really bear no malice to anyone in the industry who I have worked for or with. Any anger passes eventually, and you chalk the bad experiences up to learning a lesson. Always best to move on:) Best,JER

    I just read this and loved it! It starts out better than a novel. I mean, delivered in the back of a car by two cops on Thanksgiving Day!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I'm a fan who was been introduced to your work relatively recently (in the last ten years or so), and have been attracted to it purely out of appreciation for great great art. Now I have a whole new understanding of your place in comic book history (and why people have HUGE stacks of books for you at conventions). And like projectra, your frankness in the interview really made it for me.
    So thanks.
