Event alert: James Bond actor George Lazenby will be at a special screening of On Her Majesty's Secret Service next week. Voted the best Bond film by 007 fans (a pre-Skyfall poll), OHMSS is being shown as part of the Throwback Thursday series at the Laemmle Noho 7 Theater in Los Angeles. George Lazenby will be there for a Q&A following the 7:30 show! Details and ticket info at the theater here. Thanks to Cinema Retro for getting this on our radar. Stay tuned for my next episode on the Cocktail Nation radio show (see past episodes here). Enjoy!
I also want to let Spy Vibers know that my new book is available for pre-order on Amazon. Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics chronicles the 83-year career of the creator of Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois with rare interviews, articles, unseen photos and cartoons, and tributes from the comic community. More info at Amazon and Amazon UK. Check other Amazon sites for your region. Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics is a major accomplishment." -Brian Walker (from the Foreword). Besides syndicating nine comic strips, including Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois, Mort Walker devoted his life to creating, collecting, curating, and chatting about his one true love- the funnies! Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics takes readers on a journey for the first time through Walker's career between 1935-2018, where rare interviews, articles, letters, unpublished photographs, and drawings reveal insights about the child prodigy who grew up to become the Dean of American cartooning.
