Nicola Cuti Interview and Tom Sutton Unpublished Story
Charlton Spotlight #8 features the first full-length interview with the legendary Nicola Cuti in over a decade. The former Charlton Comics writer and assistant editor recalls working with editor George Wildman and writer Joe Gill, various Charlton production staff, and artists Wally Wood, Joe Staton, Steve Ditko, Tom Sutton, Wayne Howard, and many others, all liberally illustrated with rare and unpublished photos and art. Next up is “The Secret City,” an unpublished Doomsday+1 story by Tom Sutton. Lost for over three decades, this action-packed, feature-length vintage Charlton story has never been seen before and is published here for the very first time, with script by Nicola Cuti, lettering by Bill Pearson, and coloring by Donnie Pitchford. Including Sutton’s original unpublished cover, this monumental feature alone is worth the price of admission! We also offer a long personal memoir by DC/Archie writer-editor Paul Kupperberg on his start at Charlton and its deep influence on his career; our regular “Charlton Memories” column by Ron Frantz on his friendship with the great Alex Toth and the latter’s Charlton connection; and a special Charlton puzzle page by George Wildman. Front cover photo of Nick Cuti by Donnie Pitchford; back cover is the unpublished Doomsday+1 cover in color by Tom Sutton. • 52 pages, full color throughout.
