Interview with artist Jerry DeCaire

The Saginaw News interviews Jerry DeCaire, who began his art career on the Uncanny X-Men almost fifteen years ago. Most interesting:
Part of his hang-up centered on an inability to connect with the X-Men's popular anti-hero, Wolverine, a claw-bearing Clint Eastwood-type.

"I just could not relate to him," deCaire said. "He was rugged with a 5 o'clock shadow, and I was more into the celestial god-like characters like Thor and Dr. Strange."

DeCaire eventually worked with those characters too, illustrating titles such as "The Mighty Thor," "Dr. Strange," "The Punisher," "Nick Fury: Agent of Shield," "Iron Man," and "Conan the Barbarian."
Good heavens! The character some might argue is overrated by today was the hardest part of his job. I'm sure glad he got to work on ones like Thor and Dr. Strange later on, whom he could handle better.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
