Doug: You know these guys, some of whom have been featured in the past on the BAB. Nestor Redondo. Tony DeZuniga. Rudy Nebres. Alex Nino. Romeo Tanghal. Ernie Chan. Alfredo Alcala. E.R. Cruz. More recently, in the modern age -- Whilce Portacio. Rafael Kayanan. Leinil Francis Yu. Whether you love 'em or hate 'em, this group of talented illustrators was seemingly everywhere in the Bronze Age. Most notably, their work was featured in Marvel's stable of black and white magazines, but guys like Ernie Chan (Chua) had lengthy runs either penciling or inking such titles as Conan the Barbarian, the Incredible Hulk, and the Batman mags. Lovers of the Teen Titans will recognize Romeo Tanghal's name from the Baxter paper era, and anyone drawn to Rima the Jungle Girl by Joe Kubert's covers would have found the work of Nestor Redondo between the covers.
Doug: Today let's hear some reminiscences, preferences, pans -- whatever you got. There's plenty to discuss under this Spotlight.
