LOS ANGELES, CA
– In the 1990s, perhaps no independent publisher partied as hard, shook the industry's foundations, or endured more public and private turmoil than Boneyard Press
founder and president Hart D. Fisher. While the man Hero Illustrated dubbed 'The Most Dangerous Man In Comics' was interviewed in virtually every comics trade publication and on mainstream TV programs like Larry King Live
, The Jerry Springer Show
, and The Sally Jesse Raphael Show
, Fisher always held back. Some subjects were too personal; too painful to broach. Living on the edge for the better part of a decade, there were stories behind the stories, skeletons in the closet, and bloody ghosts that continue to haunt him to this day.
Join Edgar Award winner Burl Barer and famed attorney Don Woldman as they grill Fisher like a swordfish! Yes, we will go for the tough stuff – The murder of his first love & live in girlfriend during filming of his debut feature film, The Garbage Man; the legal battles fought over the publication of his Jeffrey Dahmer comics; the events which led to a threatened KKK protest march on his home in Illinois; what brought him out to Los Angeles and eventually led to him running the show at rock superstar Glenn Danzig's Verotik and the creation of the most controversial comic book in 50 years (Verotika #4’s “A Taste of Cherry”), the shut down of Planet Comics in Oklahoma City, the true story behind Hart D. Fisher’s “Death” in a 1998 April Fools Day prank gone wrong, discovering a young Gerard (My Chemical Romance Frontman) Way and taking the young artist (at the tender age of 15) under his wing, the decade long legal battle to keep the murderer of his first love in prison.
