Here’s another “Comic Con Classic” video from SDCC2008. I don’t feel that bad this it’s just now posted to the site, as the new Greatest American Hero comic’s first issue just hit comic stores in December.
So the short version is: when I was a kid “The Greatest American Hero” was hands-down my favorite show. Getting to meet William Katt and Robert Culp was a huge honor and trying to control the excitment of my 10 year-old self not quite believing (or not) that 20 years later I was standing there talking to them was a bit overwhelming. I’m really looking forward to the upcoming flash animation they mention, and I can’t wait to see the direction they take the book.
You can see the video of the interview at the link below:
A few months after Comic Con I was invited to a very special “GAH” 20th Anniversary reunion live panel discussion with the whole cast and a lot of the crew including the creator Steven J. Cannel and I cannot wait to see the final product of the new movie they are talking about.

And yes… as a little kid my aunt really did make me a version of the suit. I still have the cape to this day.
