We are getting ready to do our podcast about the legendary Paul Smith on Saturday and I know you are a big fan! Do you have any stories that you think are his best? Any trivia or interesting factoids? Let us know - thanks - Stuart and Jeremy with A Comic Book Education
Hey there Stuart and Jeremy,
Paul Smith, even though he only drew a handful of issues of Uncanny X-Men, defined the look of the X-Men for me in the 1980s. Uncanny X-Men #168 “Professor X Is A Jerk” still stands as one of my favourite X-Men character stories.
Smith’s equally short run on Doctor Strange with Roger Stern is worthy of note. Doctor Strange #69-70 co-starring the Black Knight is a great example of their work.
I just wish we could have seen more from him, especially on the X-Men.
Hope that helps. Please send me a link to the podcast, I’d love to listen to it and share the link.
