A New York Story

Last night, attended the New York premiere screening of first time documentary film-maker Dan Makara's "IRWIN - A NEW YORK STORY", at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. The film is a portrait of legendary cartoonist Irwin Hasen, co-creator of "DONDI" and "WILDCAT", and early chronicler of the adventures of "WONDER WOMAN", "GREEN LANTERN" and "THE JUSTICE SOCIETY".

I was a student of Irwin's over 20 years ago at the Joe Kubert School, and it's always a pleasure to see Irwin at conventions or gatherings like the one last night.

Also on hand were Jerry Robinson and Jules Feiffer.

Whether you know a lot about Irwin or not, the film is worth seeing for a glimpse of his own larger-than-life character. At 92 years of age, he still knows how to work an audience.

Congrats to Irwin and Dan for a job well done!
