J Chris Campbell and Rob Ullman will be trekking it out to San Diego this year for the big Comic-Con International (alas, I will not be) and it looks like J. Chris is putting together a Michael Jackson memorial minicomic to sell there. And, thus, the call went out to all WAPpies for comics and pinups of MJ. Here’s mine:
I have to admit: I’ve never been a huge Michael Jackson fan. I think Off the Wall is a really solid pop record and I dig a lot of the old Jackson 5 stuff, but beyond that I’m not a big follower. I know he was really important to a lot of folks, but honestly my world was a lot more changed by the recent death of Ron Asheton. As far as record sales go, Jackson is clearly the champ, but I really feel that modern music would sound really, really different if Ron Asheton had never walked the earth. I don’t think you can really say that about MJ, though… On the other hand, he could sure as hell dance better than Ron Asheton.
