Introduction Hi, G. Michael Dobbs (call me Mike). I’m a writer, film historian, college instructor, and former radio talk show host with now 30 years experience in mass communications. Currently I work as managing editor for Reminder Publications in western Massachusetts and edit four weekly newspapers read by about 120,000 to 130,000 people every week. My blogs have nothing to do with my employers, their advertisers or my staff. These are my words. If you don’t like them, blame me. My specialty in film history is animation. I was at one time a nationally recognized animation authority through my position as editor of Animato! and Animation Planet, two magazines for animation fans. “Fame,” such as it was, was fleeting. I’m working to complete my book on the Fleischer Studios, though. Here are my blogs: Out of The Inkwell is an all purpose commentary site; That’s Thirty is about the media; Made of Pen and Ink is my Fleischer book site and Animation Review is the place for people to discuss what’s good and bad in current animation. Hope you visit frequently. I update things fairly often!
