Sean Kleefeld: Predictor Of The Future!

One of the big news items in comicdom last week was that Joe Ruby, Ken Spears, and Sid and Marty Krofft are dusting off some of Jack Kirby's old and discarded work to develop ways "to revive these unseen Kirby characters in as many forms as possible."

I'd just like to lay claim to the idea that I called it a year ago. In this interview with Joe Field, I noted: "'s too easy for me to see an executive... saying, 'Well, why bother paying for people to come up with new characters? We've got enough ideas out of Jack Kirby alone to make movies and cartoons for decades!'"

In the Times article, Marty Krofft is quoted as saying, "This is a 20-year business for somebody."

So the lesson today: Listen to Sean; he knows what he's talking about.
