That is friendship. It really is. That is true. Friendship are big talk interview. This week is all about Ziggy pig. Silly seal and funny animal comics from marvel with writers frontier, Ian, John really, particularly because they have Ziggy pig. Silly seal comics number one on sale next week, and we wanted to get you guys hyped up and ready for it. I will give you a spoiler for morals. Police for next week. This issue is one of my favorites of the week. Probably is my favorite of our eightieth anniversary sort of like throwback issues. It's our comedy focused issue at his really funny. It is very dark. It is got a parental advisory on it. And it is amazingly drawn by Jacob Chabot. It's just so good. It's a lot of fun and. You know, I get into a lot of silly stuff with Franken. John because they've been friends for twenty odd years back back back in the day. John really was sort of managing the old marvel dot com when it was you know, like. Well was like the big thing. Like, this is like the mid nine mid to late nineties, and Frank was an intern back, then, you know, used to work on dot com with John they became friends. Frank was great writer is a great writer and got more work on that side of things. So they've been really close ever since a humble Jia city site. Jesse's jesse's. Yeah. All good stuff. Check it out right now. Frontier. John's really talking about Ziggy pig and silly seal. How y'all do I'm doing great. And you might wonder why I'm dressed like a refugee from Sesame Street. Okay. Because this okay supposed to be Ziggy silly Qasr play. Okay. So you gonna cover, and that's I mean, you know, because John's big idea was, hey, let's have a stress ciggie and silly foot thing here. Right. Okay. His big idea was your phone a shirt with his on. That was the beginning. This is this is what what what what is wearing the comic. He doesn't we have black. I doesn't wear black shirt. He doesn't have Zee on his shirt his Smurfs hat on. We have none of this. Okay. We have me with a black shirt with Zee on and you this redshirt silly hat on the silly wears red. I was even going to wear. Okay. I even had the idea I says get one of them pigs. Now, I'm gonna came here and made an asset of myself, and we're pigs now I went on the internet yesterday. The crack staff over here could find out. Okay. Striped shirt, right? And this is what I'm dealing with two. Now that that's out of the way for viewers who aren't familiar with the legendary characters who are you picking Salil? Where's their classic comedy team? Like, you know, been caused being Bob Hope and. Blah, blah, blah. You know what I mean hardy? Yes, we're in the Louis, we got it, really. So classic team in like classic teams. We play at that. They had some sort of fooling out there. You know what I mean? So Ziggy kinda hates silly. Because as little as money, he drinks a lot. He's kind of like a bomb and silly is the zillionaire he has rich rich. He has hey, I could have you kill the money. Chose these costumes is more fitting to your personality. What do you think? Anyway. Yes. Silly is wildly wildly rich. He opened fish canneries at some point in his life wanted Ziggy to come in with them. But Ziggy decided that he didn't want to and he's been living a really happy life. But the two of them haven't spoken in forever. Because Ziggy blamed silly for a lot of things. Silly as oblivious. He's just a happy. Go lucky dude that's been very fortunate in his life for things to have gone. Well, he married. Well, his wife is the CEO of silly enterprises. She's run all of his business dealings, and he's like bees owes wealthy. It's pretty good. I wanna get more into the comic and a little bit. But I want to get a little bit of background hardawy. I wanted you guys here for this episode was to obviously talk about your new comic. But get into some of this weirdness of all our old animal comics, Frank you been writing marvel comics for like twenty years now, right? Leno by. No, my age old exactly an old guy appeal to let us see on his chest. Yeah. It's really you've been moral for a long time. But he's older than me about a little bit Zinke pig. Silly seal first appeared in crazy comics number one, which I actually found the specific day came out way twenty first nineteen forty two. Wow. Yeah. They were the actual leaf features in the book, and it was drawn by Al Jaffee, Al Jaffee legendary. Edge magazine comics, but also in that issue, Tuffy Tomcat snappy turtle Chester chipmunk, poopie, the poetical pup. We not use to make the cut I pooping to make the cut. We got Tuffy puppies in their Tuffy. No, snappy, start turtle or whatever else. And we have reached the best ones. Oh, yeah. This sixty four pages law is packed with stuff. Posing animal on every page pretty much post. You the pelican and Lally the elephant Baldy, which I don't know what the is there's no reference anywhere on the internet some ball. Dude might be an eagle who knows again as an eagle another one called little pan. No info on that. But the best one in what I'm very upset that you guys didn't include is ding Ling the little bellboy. Oh, my genuine Golo Bobo. So all of you. I don't go by number one. So we can do number two. Yes. Singling he needs to be back in back in the spotlight. But you guys did this number while how did this project come together? That's actually a great story. I also wanna point out. It's very fascinating. Because if nineteen forty two was when they debuted they were gone by nineteen Forty-six, and those comics that had all those funny animals in it, and we were not marvel at the time we were timely publishing. There was all the rage looney tunes on the screen so timely was publishing these comics featuring all these funny animals, and there was a brief media of just shining. They were selling like crazy. And then all of a sudden they're gun. So says. Where he says like four years. They their last single issue is nineteen forty six their solo tie their own book. But they actually kept appearing toll nineteen forty seven. But yes, specifically, you know, how they came back into being was and it took me a while to figure this out, but it was a decade ago. Dan, Buckley, who's the president of the marvel we were just having a casual conversation as office one day, and he comes over to me. And he's like, you know, we have all these old characters that nobody's doing anything with which really do something with them. And he kind of like flips through this book is like these guys Z pigging silly seal, and it was the covered tizzy pixel CO number six which was issued in nineteen forty six now is their last solo booked together. And it's remarkable if you haven't seen the cover should see it as a beautiful beautiful cover, and I'm like, wow, that's really cool. So I just kinda got to like thinking about it. Frank wasn't in the picture yet. Thank goodness. Yeah. He comes in the fixing. And I'm you made a good. I I had this basic structure what we were just laying out before that something had happened between the two of them. They were this very famous comedy duo, something broke them up and Ziggy was just miserable out of Kenyan say human beings, a pig miserable out of a pig. And silly was just as happy. Go lucky. You know, everything went right for him. No matter what he touched turned to gold. And I went to Franken. I'm like as we're kind of thinking about this. The magic happens you understand when he can't the Feick. Okay. And that's where one of the things that we had both discussed. Okay. We had bought most seen the movie the wrestler. Yes. This is key. This is key. Okay. And that really came into focus of how we want to portray z. Starring the the incredible Mickey Rourke who I still love to this day. And there there's a specifically a scene in there that really lent to this. Which was Mickey. Wherever it is characters. Name was and the rest of I don't remember. But he's at like this really kind of low-grade fan convention, and he's there signing autographs, you know, taking a few dollars to get, you know, the take a polaroid and sign autographs and had this fanny pack on. And I'm just like that Ziggy what we have. We have a version of that. When do we never got the fanny pack, though, we didn't know sent me. There's no fanny pack in comic. There's enough in there though. No, I've read the book that the whole scene like I just looked at a black and white of it, and I can't wait to see the colors because there's so much detail not seen so upsetting. Yeah. Well, it's it's the convention comic book convention. It's called the the alley behind closed down laundromat con. Okay. And that's that's where and it's basically. Cain of losers. Not your clown. We have yet. No, it is a great scene at this point. We have to give credit to Jacob Chabad who really the book, you know, there's a script that goes out to the artists and one of the great things about how this art form happens is the artist will likely put his own thoughts into these scenes that he's drawing and oh my goodness. I mean, he killed it. Every coming back Franken, I were like just texting back and forth to each other. Like, oh, my God that scene. The concierge is fantastic. Visit lot I XE for a lot of crazy things I expert, but even then he had a lot of his own stuff and it matched perfectly Israeli stuff. Like we much mad magazine. It very much has a mad magazine crazy magazine field to it. Especially those scenes and the scenes later dooms castle to go back to Jaffe for one second Al Jaffee is ninety seven years old, Jeffy still works. He still does the fold into man. Magazine the fact that we have some sort of to that sort of art is huge. I was curious about how much of that was from you guys. How much of it was from Jacob just because it's so packed like every inch of every panel. He's throwing jokes little gags. Again. A lot of stuff we added in that. But last stuff he put his feet put in. Well. I'm like, oh, that's great. I mean, there's a lot of that in you know, and you guys have some classic characters in the book alongside Sealy cameos aplenty cameos aplenty along with a thick there's at least one new character for this title. Right. By the end of the book was at a new character that isn't character. Yes. That is a brand new character. There's actually a couple of new characters in there not to spoil anything, but ziggys mom plays a huge role in it. She's and we would be remiss without we have to acknowledge the fact that this is not the first Ziggy pig and silly seal. Project since nineteen forty six. Scotty young wrote an issue of that poll. I think it was number eight that was just out about a month ago any included Ziggy and silly in that where we find out that it might not have exactly bins against silly in this book, but since that existed, and since Scottie that such a great job with that book. We wanted to honor the fact that it existed, so we kinda tied in. You'll see when you read it. We'll tie in directly to what happened in that book. And plus we have. A couple of. Yes, we had a couple of curve balls thrown at us. Like, you know, when we first saw the art that was solicited beautiful piece of art. And I don't remember the artist name did that cover Klein, right Nick line. Did the does deadpool. I think he did the did he do. So, but there's a fantastic shot of Ziggy and silly in a canoe like going down, just a, you know to their their demise. Let's say about going over a waterfall, and they have a map, and they're kind of looking at the map and on the map on the front says like Varia letting we didn't know about that until we saw it solicited. And then we're like, okay. We can't just let that go. So there is into what we? Yeah. Very will be involved. Jacob draws a map of urine I've ever seen a map with areas. So pro like so that was so clear how the geography was I don't remember ever. Actually, like the Indiana Jones. And even that little nap. There's little things that Jacob himself. Put in there that are brilliant. We'll get back to this a little bit. But I wanna run down some of these other books and characters because this is part of what we're doing on this week in marvel celebrating Marvel's eightieth anniversary. And so they were a pretty big deal for time. They as we've been talking about in the forties Heather own book. They showed up a handful of other titles. Some of the other funny animal books at the time where crazy comics, of course, Ziggy pig and silly seal comics, which actually launched seventy five years ago this month on February first nineteen forty four found the actual date comedy comics, super rabbit comics, which launched the same month as is again silly. It was like days later, he's a guy with a little Cape of rabbit and it just inches. Regular texture says super avid like kind of low-budget great. He's great but Ziggy and Scillies show up in his book a ton. They're very much connected. Some of the character. So if you guys do. More. I wanna give you some of the names of other characters we had in the forties and fifties as possible fodder for future stories. So it super Rabah we talked about which would be a lot of fun. We're gonna put thing we'll get to super rabbit Percy penguin super squirt Bill. I was going right? I was driving. I had a stick your head of the window. But what was the penguin Percy penguin? Love that already billion buggy bear. This one's real cool. The gin and Claude penny grabber which were they import fiction sound like they could be it's a dog. And maybe a FOX I think I couldn't really tell. Petty. I saw at least one story that was written by STAN Lee with art by Jim Mooney way back in forty two forty three. Wow. Lester, the lion Montague pigeon more team? Oh, lord. I know pigeon, more t- monk and buck by Boone monk being monkey. I believe WALDO wolf skip. O'hare puffy pig pig pig. There's more there's more pigs. There's more pig fluke and Skilley boo, which I have no idea what it is the one. You were you were asking about Frankie was what was his name. Pook. The poetic. Politico pump this casper cat, crazy crow. Crazy Crowe actually showed up tone with Cillian Ziggy Homer, rabbit Ossie ostrich wacky. Duck sharpie FOX buzzy bear squeaky mouse, tubby pig. So we got another and another vote that the pigs wonder duck, and this one that you like this want to see some coming together. Wellington. Mutt? Was so good. Started Percy penguin itself. Montagu pigeon Montague pigeon. All those three that's gone. Ventures of the. Cosby so good. But so we were talking about the end of Ziggy and Scillies run. I believe it was silly tunes number seven which came out March fifth nineteen forty seven that is I believe the last golden age appearance, Ziggy and Sealy, and that's after over fifty appearances in five years and think about we weren't publishing eighty comics month, we were published a lot, but fifty appearances in those five years as huge it's a lot. Yeah. Especially comics were coming out every other month or quarterly quarterly, whatever it was. So by August, nineteen forty seven funny animal comics were almost all done Nomorza gin, silly super Abbott actually goes into August, a forty eight and then there's really just sporadic releases at that point even titles that had been funny animal books like crazy where they showed up in and another book that's again silly. We're were in called ideal both of those turn into completely different books. Same numbering saying they're just like have humans in them. Most of the line at that point becomes teen titles. Westerns little superheroes and crime. We have one character wonder duck, and we have a bunch. Ducks pigs Yeltsin pigs in butter. Yeah. Wonder duck carries over from the forties into the fifties. At this point his book becomes it's a duck's life, which is terrific title for which features buck duck and super Abbott that lasts until the end of fifty one but buck actually launches his own book in fifty three only lasting four issues and Ziggy and silly. They actually show up in two thousand nine in marvel adventures fantastic for number forty six by Paul Tobin and Perry Perez, which is an interesting when you read it on more limited also in the issue. Tuffy cat super rabbit crazy crow and wonder duck. But only Ziggy silly are named super shows up. You can tell super because shirt says super and Tuffy Tomcat is like a monster. Who turns back into a cartoon by the end. Two thousand nine that came out. But that's that is really a Ron because we could talk about spider ham, and sort of how that came out of the inspiration from Ziggy and silly. But so different these comics are so fun, and John you, and I were talking about some of the covers these comics and how the one today was like a motivating murder. Yeah. It's yeah. So these comments can be really fun. If you can get your hands on them, check them out. But Ziggy pig and silly seal comes out March sixth by John frontier. Jacob shaybah. And it's terrific. You guys by go. Check it out level copies. She monkey spunk aware of his name is it's monkey monkey spunk. The monk whatever you wanna characters. Okay. Percy whatever and flute.

Let us know what you think of the book. It's really terrific. I read this morning. And I it is because you were talking we were talking a little bit about Ziggy and Scillies kind of having came back into being, and it really was sort of tenure process. We had talked to Dan, he Buckley, he had really liked it at the time. And then me being in the new media group over the years, we discuss maybe animation. But for whatever reason now voice, that's right as as rich Herrera video guru here at marvel actually did a test of Ziggy just at a bar wonderful little test I've ever seen that now Ryan has never seen that. How about that? You saw. All right. Josh OT anyway. So here we are in twenty nineteen and the lunar new year is happening. Guess what? You're of the pig. So Ziggy came full circle his his time was right. That's the only thing. I wanted to say I like it. That's good. Hopefully, we'll see more of them very soon. John Frank, thanks for being on this model laid up. Thanks for having us. Big big, thanks to Frank Jon for taking the time. And I hope you guys enjoy that as much as literally everyone in the room enjoyed it. We had people who are watching who had no reason to be there. They just wanted to watch the interview.

He shared some photos. I don't know if it shared them to our full to me so from blowing up your spot. Jason those were the greatest photos. I was so excited for you to George Perez. So neat. Awesome and Twitter. Let's go to Twitter. Stephen Oris says agent. Am always wondered what the deal was with cover dates now relegated to the credits page subtexts thing, and why they bear no relation to the actual publication day bug me for years. Can you explain what they're about? Yes. Stephen semi this question awhile ago apologies for not answering it sooner an answer the best. I can. So when he says the credits page subtext thing that's the in DC, that's sort of the legal lines. That's information about publications stuff. Like that part of that goes I believed to library is tied with library of congress. What publication date sort of? That cover date is always roughly two to three months ahead of time. I don't know exactly why. But that's the same way it is for magazines for a lot of the like monthly or long-term publications. It's different from the onset date. It's always going to be different. They on Sunday, which even going back to specially the old old comics, we look at the library of congress dates because that's the only one that we have that's reliable, especially back. You look at the sixties. For instance, there wasn't like, hey, comics come out on Wednesday. Like we have now they were just released kind of whenever we willy nilly. Yeah. They could be it's really depending on the printer and the delivery system and all kinds of stuff stands would get them. When they got them. You couldn't go to your new stand knowing necessarily. Hey, I'm going to get on this Wednesday. It's kind of the best. I can do to answer it. I don't know why that happens. I'm sure if we had a historian historian. They could pinpoint that, but is always going to have a different covered eight from what the on sale Tate is. That's just the way it is looking for a couple months difference.
