Stan Goldberg – The Interview Issue 2!

Thanks so much to the cool, talented Stan Goldberg for such a fun, informative interview that’s being enjoyed by many! 🙂 There’s been a lot of great feedback both publicly and privately. 🙂 

When artistry is present in comics and graphic novels, that makes them so enjoyable toMillie the Model by Stan Goldberg look at again and again. And when the artist is nice and cool that makes them even better! 😀

If  you ever get the opportunity to go to a book or comic/graphic novel event, such as the NY Comic Con and you can go see Stan Goldberg there, that would be such an awesome time! You get to meet him, talk with him, and listen to such cool stories while he’s drawing you a custom picture – that’s priceless! 😀 And the scoop from intrepid Papercutz reporter Jesse, is that there are always long lines of Stan’s many fans, anxious to get to hang out with him. 🙂 And it’s well worth the wait! 😎 

From all of the feedback, I know that you guys are anxious for more of the interview, so here now are the next three questions and answers with cool clues about the man and the artist – Stan Goldberg:

4.  I’m really fascinated by the art of comics/graphic novels and learning what it takes to create these cool works of art. What’s the process of how it gets from your ideas and the writer’s ideas to the comic/graphic novel that we see and read and enjoy?

Director Stan GoldbergStan –  The writer gives the script to the editor.  After the editor gives his OK, he sends it to me and it’s my turn to do the artwork.

As a very young man, always drawing…I always liked to turn these little drawings into some kind of storyline.  I’ve always enjoyed going to the movies.  I saw how the director prepared the actors for the camera.  Now….I’m the director and now, I create the scenes and prepare my characters  for the  graphic novel.  That’s how I tell my story in picture form from the script I’ve been given.

It’s a very simple procedure.

I’ve drawn comics and graphic novels for many years and I’m still learning how to get it right.

It’s a 7/24 kind of job.  It’s the best kind of job and I love doing it.

Ann – Really cool way to explain about the script and scenes and you being the director! 🙂 You say it’s a very simple procedure, but I think that’s only because you do it so well – so much creativity and artistry goes into telling the story through pictures! 🙂 I’d say you definitely get it just right! 🙂

5.  And a question not directly connected with your drawings – except that everyone needs to eat to do the things we love. 🙂 What’s your favorite food?

Stan –  My favorite food.  Well, that’s an easy question.  PASTA, PASTA. PASTAKathy the Teenage Tornado by Stan Goldberg 1

Ann – Cool, I love pasta, too! 😀

6.  Do you like to snack on a particular food while drawing?

Stan – Working as a freelancer since 1958, I’m still on schedule pretty much every day.  I never go to the fridge when I work.  In the summer months I drink lots of ice tea, no sugar.  No snacking.  This I find keeps me fresh and alert when I’m at the drawing board.


BOLO for the next exciting issue in this four part series: Stan Goldberg – The Interview! 😎                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          ~ Ann (a Stan fan :D)

  1. Yes, thank you! 😀 Cool! 🙂 My other friends and I are enjoying this interview series very much. 😀

    That is true; it makes a world of difference when the artist is a nice person with good character. It shows in their work. 😎

    Yeah! 😎

    Ready to

    You come up with very good questions, Ann, and I believe you did the art for Stan Goldberg’s director’s chair, too. 😎 Am I right? 🙂

    Thank you for sharing so much with us, Mr. Goldberg! 🙂 You explain things so well. 😎

    Yes, a true expert often makes things seem easy, although it is the grace of their expertise that makes it appear that way. 🙂

    Me, three! 😉 😀 Pasta is delicious. 🙂

    That is an excellent strategy, Mr. Goldberg. 😎

    Those comic book covers look great! 🙂 I love the artistry.

    Thank you, Ann (ladies first, you know 😉 ) and Mr. Goldberg, for another excellent issue; the sharing of your time and thoughts is gratefully appreciated! 😀 I look forward to issue three! 😎 Callie

    • You’re welcome! 🙂 Awesome! 🙂

      So true! 🙂


      Thank you – it’s fun! 🙂 And yes, you’re correct. 🙂

      That’s a fact. 🙂

      Another pasta fan – cool! 😀

      Me, too! 🙂

      🙂 You’re welcome, Callie, and thank you for your fun enthusiasm! 🙂 😎

  2. It was fun reading this part, too! 😀 Got to know so much more! 😎 Specially, thanks for asking about the comic making process, Ann. I wanted to know that and I loved reading Mr. Goldberg’s answer to that question! Quite an interesting perspective! 😎 🙂

    • Awesome! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it, Ritu! 🙂 You’re welcome. 🙂 Same here – I love finding out things like that! 🙂 He’s cool! 🙂

  3. Thanks for all of the information! 🙂 So neat! I really like the whole movie scene explanation. I definitely want to read these comics! And I hope to go to a Comic Con sometime! Especially to meet Stan Goldberg! 🙂

  4. Ann knows I love admiring excellent works of art – especially when it’s combined with another love of mine: good books! 😀 😎 I enjoy taking in the many details & colors on the covers 😎 – it takes a while before I actually open the book! 😀 😛 😀 😎 What drew me to the Archie comics (from when you drew them 😎 – because I don’t believe that anything past that time is genuine Archie comics) was the drawings – more specifically: drawings that you, Stan G, created! 😀 😎 When I found them at the store & bought some then read them, I paid more attention to the drawings than the story in lettering 😀 – & I’m a serious reader of words! 😀 The thing is: I enjoy the story that your drawings tell above that which is lettered in! 😎

    Appreciating the good things,

  5. I’m finally catching up on this interview- another great round. I liked the director’s chair metaphor too- and pasta is definitely great as well. 🙂

Please leave a reply - that would be awesome! :)
