Bob McLeod - New Mutants [Sep. 15th, 2015|10:07 am]
For Moms who are and were Geeks


I just have to say it here.

One of our locals is Bob McLeod, who was an illustrator for Marvel and DC comics, and was a co-creator for The New Mutants, which I collected from the time it started until my kids were mobile.

Anyway, his wife is in our local Friends group, and is a librarian too (as well as me, not her spouse), and his daughter is the local middle school librarian. So of course we had him present for our Summer Reading Program (the theme was Every Hero Has A Story - it was a no-brainer).

It took me weeks to dig into my boxes in storage, but I finally found my copy of the New Mutants Graphic Novel, and got it autographed!

Bob is a lovely, soft-spoken man, and did a great presentation, so... Yay!

Very cool! I wasn't a big New Mutant fan but I read a few when they crossed over with the other X titles. Is he still an artist for comics or did he move on to something else?

He is teaching part time, and he goes to Comic Cons and does programs for schools and libraries.

I was surprised to find that he had done a number of important titles and characters. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_McLeod_%28comics%29
