A Mad Interview

The Comics Journal has an excellent audio archive up for Halloween, an interview from ’83 with William Gaines, the late publisher of Tales From the Crypt and Mad Magazine.

Dirk Deppey writes in:

    Along with editor Al Feldstein, Gaines was the publisher responsible for perhaps the first genuine Renaissance in the comic book field, and later served as an inspiration for much of the underground comix movement. In these extended excerpts, the ever-genial Mr. Gaines discusses horror comics, his testimony before the 1950s Senate Subcommittee hearings on “Comics and Juvenile Delinquency,” the creation of the much-reviled Comics Code Authority, Harvey Kurtzman, Mad Magazine, and much more.

    Almost an hour-and-a-half of audio excerpts, free for downloading in user-friendly MP3 format, available until November 15th at this address.
