THE KNIGHT WATCHMAN THROUGH THE YEARS

Once again, from our pals at Pulp 2.0, another peak at what’s in store for the Big Bang History of Comics. Various looks of the Knight Watchman throughout the years.

KNIGHT WATCHMAN PULP COVER

By Allen Berrebbi

Big Bang Comics History Knight Watchman Pulp Cover

From our pals at Pulp 2.0

When you’re designing a book like the BIG BANG HISTORY OF COMICS, you’re part historian/ part archeologist. When you’re digging around the vault you’re bound to find most anything. (Beware of the snakes!)

For example: Here is the long lost cover to the aborted KNIGHT WATCHMAN pulp magazine. True fans know Garrison Robillard, the founder of Big Bang Comics got his start in the pulps, and for a brief moment considered creating a pulp magazine to complement the sales of DEDUCTIVE and other comics that Knight Watchman appeared within. Robillard was never afraid to “use all of the buffalo,” as long as it didn’t cost him a lot of money, and his magazine distribution co. needed product.

This cover was “commissioned” on a Friday and expected to be on Robillard’s desk Monday morning, hence this artwork’s resemblance to another pulp character who ironically also originated from comics [Which is where we think Robillard got the idea! ] — with Chris Ecker and Gary Carlson.

He became as strong as an ox, as fast as a racing car, had skin like steel and could jump the length of a football field. He donned a costume and became ULTIMAN.

The 5th volume in the BIG BANG COMICS COLLECTION gathers together all of the stories from Ultiman’s long list of super-heroic adventures. A cornerstone of the Big Bang Comics Universe (along with Knight Watchman and Thunder Girl), Ultiman is a classic comic book character whose adventures are fun for the whole family to read!
In addition to all of the Ultiman stories, this Pulp 2.0 edition features bonus materials such as never-before-seen artwork, the History of Ultiman, and rare material not seen in a decade. They’re all here – Ultiman, Lori Lake, Ultragirl, Thunder Girl, and the Pantheon of Heroes — the entire Ultiman Family of characters from the Big Bang universe.

Included in this edition is the NEVER-BEFORE-PUBLISHED STORY by Ultiman Artist Jeff Weigel (THE SPHINX)

Since the Knight Watchman Digital Strips posted so far are completely remastered, digitally created documents, we’re looking into the possibility of printing either full color or black and white limited original art size, signed prints for art collectors.

Like other strips, we will only print one of each (one in B&W & one in color), and we will let you know what the cost would be for them, once we find out if this can be done reasonably.

INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS ECKER

A very interesting interview with Big Bang Comics co-founder Chris Ecker.

Two-Geeks-Talking-Logo-Header2

CHRIS ECKER

CHRIS ECKERChris Ecker has had an over thirty year career in both the creative and retail ends of the comics industry, worked as a professional wrestling announcer, held journalist positions on two national magazines, and designed toys, children’s books, and national advertising campaigns.

Hired as the first full time employee of the Moondog’s Comics chain, Chris spent over fifteen years in management of ChicagoLand’s most prominent chain of comic book and pop culture stores.

He was also a mainstay at Gary Carlson’s MEGATON Comics, where he co-created and drew the independent b&w comic book RAMM with writer Lee Dolezal, as well as helping with lettering and production work on other titles.

His cartooning career included a short stint as assistant to Rick Fletcher, supplying lettering on the DICK TRACY syndicated comic strip and as a gag cartoonist, with work appearing in the Chicago Tribune Sunday comics.

He was one of the original founders of Chicago’s NOW Comics after the release of his self published EB’NN the Raven comic book in the 1980s drew the attention of entrepreneur Tony Caputo. With the third issue, EB’NN became one of the fledgling company’s tent pole titles. At Ecker’s suggestion, NOW Comics pursued such licensed titles as SPEED RACER and ASTRO BOY, eventually adding REAL GHOSTBUSTERS, TERMINATOR, Married With Children and other licensed properties to their publishing roster.

Chris also created and served as editor/writer on BATTLE-AXE MAGAZINE for Comics Interview, and worked as a freelance artist in advertising–supplying production art for Curious George and Cap’n Crunch, as well as producing art for comic books published by First Comics and Mirage Studios before co-creating BIG BANG COMICS with Gary Carlson.

Chris eventually moved into journalism as a writer/markets editor for Sendai publications HERO ILLUSTRATED magazine and HERO ON-LINE where he reported on the market trends in the burgeoning direct market comic business of the 1990s.

He also worked with Marvel/DC artist and pro wrestler P.D. “Dark Angel” Gabrielle as a ring and on air announcer for CIWA Pro Wrestling and on the POWERSLAM Pro wrestling TV show.

After a three year stay in the motorcycling industry as an advertising artist for a chain of Harley-Davidson dealerships, Ecker became the Marketing and Communications Coordinator for Moose International, the parent organization for the Loyal Order of Moose Fraternity, serving as Associate Editor of the international Moose Magazine. He also designed the Tommy Moose plush toy and a wrote and drew a children’s book featuring the character for the organization.

Ecker is currently producing the Knight Watchman Digital Comic Strip released online every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and which will soon be written by legendary comic book writer Roger McKenzie, and inked by Matthew Hansel.

KNIGHT WATCHMAN: GRAVEYARD SHIFT

GRAVEYARD SHIFTThe graphic novel from the acclaimed Big Bang Comics mini-series originally published by Image Comics in 1998. This is the gripping story by Chris Ecker, Gary Carlson with stark, atmospheric, film noir-ish artwork by Ben Torres. It’s been five long years since the Knight Watchman prowled the streets of Midway City… Now the city is under siege, and the streets are deadlier than ever before… But so is he.

On the heels of an assassination attempt that leaves the Mayor in a coma and the city’s hero, GALAHAD, in traction; THE KNIGHT WATCHMAN ends his retirement and returns to the streets to keep the city from falling further into chaos. However, chaos is exactly the plan orchestrated by the Knight Watchman’s arch enemy, PINK FLAMINGO. The master criminal has taken over the city government by installing Deputy Mayor PRINCETON into office, and unleashing the dirty cops on his payroll. When a mugger turns up dead and the evidence points straight at the Knight Watchman, Midway City’s former hero becomes its most wanted criminal. This edition from Pulp 2.0 features the gritty, urban superhero storytelling that was a hallmark of the 90’s, and reinvented one of the founding heroes of the Big Bang Universe.

This edition is complete with bonus features making it a must-have for all comics fans.

KID GALAHAD

kid-galahadReal Name: Jerry Randall

Identity/Class: Normal human

Occupation: Lawyer

Aliases: the Kid Whiz, Galahad, White Knight, Knight Watchman

Affiliations: Whiz Kids, Round Table of America

History: Kid Galahad was groomed from a young age to fight crime and the Kid Whiz dedicated his life to that pursuit. Along the way, he passed on some of what he learned to other youthful crimefighters as the leader of a team that became known as the Whiz Kids. He spent some time in New York City studying with an aged master of Japanese martial arts.

Galahad dropped the “Kid” from his name when he entered college and left Midway City. Yearning to not only stop criminals but to see them locked away, Jerry studied law. After graduation, he returned to Midway City to work for the District Attorney by day and patrol the streets at night as Galahad. The demands of two full time jobs stretched Jerry to the limit and when the time came to make a decision, Galahad won out.

Inspired by Ultiman’s example, Galahad vowed to become a symbol of hope for the citizens of Midway City. Leaving the “night shift” to the Watchman, Galahad began operating during the daylight hours to become a visible presence in Midway. He worked with the police and the FBI, fighting not only crime but also corruption.

Meanwhile, Jerry became a corporate lawyer and a partner in the family business. He married his long time girlfriend Maggie and they bought a large mansion on Midway City’s famed Platinum Coast. Once owned by smugglers, Jerry converted the secret basement into the Dungeon, his own version of the Watch Tower.

Over the years the Watchman and Galahad fought crime individually and as a team. Galahad replaced his mentor in the Round Table of America and came to be regarded as the team leader by even the older members.

The Knight Watchman retired in his mid 50s, still in peak mental and physical condition, but age was catching up to him. Confident in Galahad’s abilities, Reid devoted himself to his career as an international fashion designer and to running the family financial empire.

Noting an increase in crime after Reid’s retirement, Jerry often adopted the Knight Watchman identity to patrol the city. In this way he could strike fear into the hearts of criminals by night and offer hope to the city by day as Galahad, the White Knight.

KNIGHT WATCHMAN

KNIGHT WATCHMANReal Name: Reid Randall

Identity/Class: Normal human.

Occupation: Fashion designer

Affiliations:

Earth B: Knights of Justice

Earth A: Round Table of America

Enemies: Mr. Mask, Quizmaster, Grandfather Clock, Pink Flamingo, Baron Fledermaus, El Diablo, Cheshire Cat

Known Relatives: Jerry Randall/Kid Galahad (nephew), Ma Randall (mother), Ted (older brother, deceased), Janet (sister-in-law, deceased)

Aliases: Twilight Paladin, Purple Pimpernel

Base of Operations: the Watchtower, Midway City, Earth A

Powers/Abilities: world class decathlon athlete, skilled fighter, detective

History: College student and Olympic hopeful Reid Randall was called home to Midway City when mobsters attempted to take over the family garment business. His older brother Ted and his wife Janet were killed by a car bomb and Reid vowed to avenge their deaths, deciding that the whole warehouse district needed a guardian to protect it from the mob.

Wearing a simple homemade costume and mask to protect his identity, and using his athletic skills, Reid defeated the gang single-handedly. He dressed his downed opponents in women’s clothes and left them tied up for the police. During the fight, one of the gang had referred to Reid as a night watchman. Recalling how his mother had referred to him as her “knight in shining armor”, the Knight Watchman was born to protect the innocents from criminals.

The wooden water tower on the roof of a warehouse became the Watch Tower, where the Knight Watchman began his nightly vigil over the city. The building below was the real secret headquarters, housing a laboratory, training area and the garage which housed the motorcycle known as the “Iron Horse” and later, the high performance automobole known as the WatchWagon.

Reid’s nephew Jerry Randall soon entered the war on crime, claiming that “every knight needs a squire!” A knight in training, Jerry adopted the guise of Kid Galahad and together the two became the terror of the Midway City underworld.

Midway City was the most dangerous and corrupt city in America, run by mobsters who had fought a continual gang war for control since the Great depression. But instead of simple mobsters, the Twlite aces were soon facing Mr Mask, whose disfigured, clay-like face could be reshaped to look like anyone else; former game show writer the Quizmaster; the rotund, top-hatted Grandfather Clock; and the sinister, smiling Pinkerton Fleming, a.k.a. the Pink Flamingo.

Aside from Galahad, the Knight Watchman’s closest friend was Ultiman. Known as “the World’s Best Friends”, they shared many adventures together and with the Round Table of America, an assemblage of America’s best & brightest heroes which they established at the request of President Kennedy.

GARY CARLSON

GARY CARLSONGary Carlson wrote and published the independent comic book MEGATON during the 1980s, which helped usher in the do-it-yourself black & white comics boom of that decade.

MEGATON is remembered as a training ground for comic book professionals. Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Angel Medina, Gordon Purcell and Jackson Guice are among those whose first professional assignments were for Carlson. MEGATON was also the first home to such Image Comics characters as Erik Larsen’s SAVAGE DRAGON, Rob Liefeld’s YOUNGBLOOD and Larsen & Carlson’s VANGUARD, which later prompted Liefeld to dub Carlson the “Grandfather of Image Comics”.

In the ‘90s, Carlson wrote BERZERKER for Caliber Press, and co-created the retro anthology series BIG BANG COMICS with Chris Ecker.

Carlson has also written various VANGUARD mini-series, back-ups and one shots for Image, where he also scripted MARS ATTACKS IMAGE and wrote SUPREME, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES volume 3, as well as BIG BANG COMICS, which moved to Image Comics in 1996. He has also co-written AQUAMAN and NOVA with Erik Larsen.

He also has 30+ years of experience in the graphic design and prepress field.
