Where's Jim Salicrup?
A funny thing happened on the way to the editing room...
Jim Salicrup has held just about every position in the comic book industry. However, he may be most well-known for being a Spider-Man editor at Marvel Comics and Editor-in-Chief and Associate Publisher at TOPPS (X-Files the Comic for example). He's currently the Editor-in-Chief at Papercutz, the NBM American-mangaesque imprint for young adults.
Well, in our first DVD release, he
appears very briefly, and is not mentioned by name.
However, we did have a long sit-down interview with him, hosted by Ken Gale;
and Jim appeared on a panel that we taped about media tie-ins and comics.
Since we were lucky enough to tape sit
down interviews with two former Spider-Man editors,
our post production people got confused. We hope to have video material with him for television broadcast or home video soon.

As an illustrator/storyteller, Jim Salicrup has been experimenting with SD: Super-Deformed Style --
which became a common way of showing humor scenes in Japanese animation, and then was borrowed in the design of the Power Puff Girls. Super-deformed usually includes a larger proportioned head and often larger proportioned eyes. Often the characters are meant to be the "child-self" of the more serious version of the character. Another SD element is adding cute animal characteristics such as cat's ears or a pig's tail.
