Pop Culture Roundup: Mod Magazine; Marvel's What If?; Paul Krassner; Ditko's Mr. A

ITEM! The Mod magazine. Did you let your subscription lapse?


ITEM! Comics scribe Roy Thomas details the genesis of Marvel's "What If?" comics series, which has inspired an upcoming animated TV show.



ITEM! Paul Krassner, a 1960s rabble-rouser with a sense of humor, died this week at age 87. A one-time writer for Mad Magazine, he went on to found The Realist, a groundbreaking counter-culture zine that blended satire and politics, and the Yippies. More from The Comics Journal.



ITEM! The late cartoonist Steve Ditko's Mr. A stories are being compiled into a collected edition - even though he didn't want that to happen.
