The Return of Arlen Schumer – #29

Generic Geek Podcast

Arlen Schumer

Our good friend, and noted comic book historian, author, and lecturer, Arlen Schumer joined us to talk about how Stan Lee committed the greatest art crime of the 20th century, why The Twilight Zone has stood the test of time, the racist origins of Marvel’s Black Panther’s costume, Batman: The Animated Series, and a lot more.

Arlen has taken it upon himself to teach others about just how influential and important the Silver Age actually was to comic book storytelling, and to art in general. He is the author of the award-winning book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, and has given numerous lectures all across the country on the subject of comic book art and history, Batman: The Animated Series, Jack Kirby, The Twilight Zone, and more. He also has lectures planned on Black Panther, 1968, and Bruce Springsteen coming later this year.

You can follow Arlen on his website, Facebook, InstagramTwitter, Tumblr, and YouTube. And while you’re at it, go buy his book. You’ll be glad you did!

Jeremiah Zohner

Owner and CEO After developing a love of Star Wars and comic books as a child, Zohner was destined to be a geek. With interests touching on computers, video games, technology, books, TV and movies, and toys and collectibles, he is the epitome of a well-rounded geek. Zohner is one of the founding members of Stolendroids. After stepping away for a time to work on other endeavors, the time was right for him to make his triumphant return to the one project that he truly loves. When he’s not writing articles or podcasting, Zohner can be found spending time with his family, managing projects for a software company, or hanging out in the gym knowing that it won’t do a bit of good.
