@NerdSector2814 The most interesting book on this stuff is KIRBY & LEE: STUF SAID by John Morrow, but I’ve also just picked up a lot over the years through conversations and interviews and such. The Dr. Strange/Droom stuff comes from reading the stories and seeing the connections.     source

I’m reading WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and enjoying it quite a bit. I realize that genre-wise, it’s “historical fiction,” but what do you call the writing style? I want to find more books this engaging, with this kind of clear, direct language and storytelling while still being smart.     source
