Marc Basile fills us in on the story behind his latest pièce de résistance…“Around the time Jack came back to Marvel they wanted to get it’s hands into animation and toy licensing, so they started up the Micronauts, Godzilla and Shogun Warrior titles. One such title, Gigantor, was to be done by Jack, but it didn’t pan out . Not one to throw away an idea, Jack used the concept as inspiration for Machine Man a few years later.”
