I've always known all the actors the characters from Wildsiderz are based on from the very beginning. Well, I thought I did until I read the book. I was blown away that the evil guy (can't remember his name at the moment) is/was based on Gene Simmons, who looks nothing like him in the comic. Still an eye opener. The other thing that blew me away when reading the book was the revelation that Jim Lee had done the page breakdowns for Issues #1 and #2 of the Gen 13 Mini-series. To drive home the WTF moment I have to backup a bit and tell a story first. Whenever I get together with friends that are into Comic Book art, occasionally talk turns to JSC and we discuss and pick apart things he has worked on and one of the things I always bring up is "discovering" him as he broke in and I always point out that for me it was thrilling to see this kid really come into his own and grow artistically with the release of Issue #3 of Gen 13. Back to the WTF...it all finally made sense why there was a HUGE jump from #2 to #3. It's because he was finally allowed to sink or swim on his own. Jim Lee doing the breakdowns, as good as those issues were, were in fact holding JSC back in a way. With the reigns taken off JSC, he had a massive jump. I couldn't understand how he could be that good that fast in 30 days. MIND. BLOWN.
