About this show:
It's a Combination Special of my show Eco-Logic (Tuesday mornings 11 AM)
and Harry Allen's show Nonfiction (Friday afternoons 2 PM). We discuss
environmental issues, art and communication with Seth Tobocman, Nicole
Schulman, Mac McGill, Tom Keough and James Romberger. They're three
editors and five writer / artists from World War 3 Illustrated magazine. They are
masters at using sequential art to convey and succinctly explain complex
political and social ideas and the latest issue (#37) is mostly on
environmental issues. They've also had art in Vertigo comics, the N Y
Times, the New Yorker, various graphic novels, the Amsterdam News, The
Progressive and many art galleries in the U.S. and Europe including the
United Nations and Museum of Modern Art.
Among the issues discussed on the show are fossil fuel, breast cancer,
global warming, nuclear power, oil addiction, rebuilding New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq, Coral Reefs and renewable energy
history. The magazine itself has even more. It's WBAI Membership Drive time
and the magazine and an extended cd set (with "deleted scenes") of the
interviews will be our premium.
You may still be able to order this!

|What I usually hear is about the DVD is "I want more, when's the
next one coming out?"which people only say about things they like.
Yes, we DO have more material ready to go for another dvd.
All the artists who are in it like the dvd, which is pretty important.
|The guys at Secret Identity say, "... a great, great introduction
to comic shows and creator interviews."
|Chuck Rozanski owner of Mile High Comics referred
to me as an uberfan and wrote: "a fantastic new
DVD...especially for dedicated comics fans."
|Mike Lilly wrote on April 21st 2006, "Just viewed Ken Gale's 'Nuff Said!
dvd. Very cool production. And the club music, I wish they played some tunes
at the shows to get people pumped up and I'd love to see more of Kaluta's
interview. He's one of my heroes."

|Excerpt From Daily News Article
"Most kids don't buy comics today," says Ken Gale, host of the WBAI comics
show 'Nuff Said!' "So most comics aren't written for kids anymore."
In Europe and Japan, Gale says, comic artists are treated like movie directors.
Their work is analyzed and respected.
Here, we tip our hats more to a $100 million movie than to the 30 or 40 years of
comic art that developed the character[The Hulk].
Happily, the urge to draw is strong. Artists keep creating quality comics...
