My eulogy for my parents, Stephen J. Lasky and Ronnie R. Lasky who both passed away within weeks of each other, fall 2017.
“Summer of Hell.” That’s what they’ve been calling it. From July through September, my NJ train line completely stopped going into Manhattan.
Like a lot of kids, growing up I was always captivated and mesmerized by comic books and superheroes—in particular Marvel comics. I grew up Brooklyn NY, during the 70s and 80s, the so-called Bronze Age of comic books.
Recently, I had the chance to interview one of my childhood heroes and inspirations, Kenneth Johnson the visionary writer, producer and director of The Six Million Dollar Man (writer), The Bionic Woman (writer, producer, creator, director), The Incredible Hulk (writer, producer, creator, director), V (writer, producer, creator, director), and Alien Nation (writer, producer, creator, director).
Our ideas are the most valuable thing we offer, and simply can’t be given away.
