Lawson discussing his working relationship with Frank; the Persuasions published an album under the Straight label. This is from the documentary From Straight to Bizarre; I posted the trailer last October.

Got this in the mail on Saturday:
It's what I bought in the Ditko Kickstarter back in April -- The Ditko Public Service Package #2, plus various other goodies, some Ditko and some non-Ditko, from publisher Robin Snyder's collection.
I've barely scratched the surface of this delightful haul, and I think it's far too early for me to do a writeup that would do it any kind of justice. Suffice it to say it's just what I'd hoped for -- brilliant and raw and undiluted and baffling and infuriating and contradictory and didactic and oblique and funny and heartbreaking and ingenious and so very, very pretty to look at, in turns and sometimes all at once.
So yeah, I'm pretty happy with it.
Bring on the next Ditko Kickstarter.
But I'll need some time to finish reading all my stuff from this one.
