Jim Shooter On Being Blacklisted From Comics, In Heavy Metal Magazine

Jim Shooter was Editor-In-Chief of Marvel Comics, founded Valiant Entertainment, Defiant Comics, and Broadway  Comics and, of late, has been more and more willing to spill the tea. It looks as if he will be undertaking (or has already undertook it) and interview for Heavy Metal Magazine in which he will talk "about being blacklisted from the comic book industry". Maybe the right folk haven't reached out? Now would probably be a good time. Heavy Metal Magazine #312 will be out in December, as well as everything else below as part of Heavy Metal's December 2021 solicitations.
