Comic Book Men – Q&A With Billy Dee Williams

comic-book-men-episode-414-billy-dee-williams-325Comic Book Men guest star Billy Dee Williams talks about playing Star Wars‘s Lando Calrissian, some behind-the-scenes memories and more.

Q: What did you think of the Stash when you came into the store?

A: I thought that huge Millennium Falcon was interesting. I’d never seen anything like it.

Q: Are you a fan of comic books?

A: Not anymore. It’s not that I’m not a fan, I just don’t sit around reading comic books now. I watch cartoons. There’s spectacular stuff out there. When I was younger, I read Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel and things like that, and a lot of newspaper comics like Dick Tracy.

Q: In the episode, Kevin Smith says he thinks there are two Lando’s — treacherous Empire Strikes Back Lando and good Return of the Jedi Lando. Do you agree?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Darryl McDaniels

comic-book-men-episode-413-darryl-mcdaniels-325Comic Book Men guest star Darryl McDaniels talks about his lifetime love of comic books, the legacy of Run-DMC and creating his own comic book.

Q: In the episode, you mention you’d wanted to see the Stash. What did you think?

A: It was simply amazing! The selections they have there, the artifacts, the toys — it’s really thorough. For a person in love with comic book culture and science fiction, there’s stuff there for people three years old to a hundred years old.

Q: Comic books have had a huge impact on your life. How did comic books form your childhood?

A: As a kid, I was bullied, and growing up was kind of miserable. But comic books were the one world where everything was perfect, where I was powerful and empowered. On the outside, I was this little nerdy kid who wears glasses and went to Catholic school, and everyone thought I was a little weakling. But they had no idea that, just like a superhero, the strength that was within me — both creatively and artistically — when it came time for me to come out of my shell.

Q: How did you go from being a self-proclaimed “shy nerdy kid” to becoming the “King of Rock”?
