By the time Mr. Lambert was 16 years old, he was writing for the Cleveland rock and roll newspaper, The Scene Magazine. Chris spent three years with the paper, writing record and concert reviews as well as interviews with stars such as Eric Clapton, Badfinger, Kenny Loggins, Billy Preston, The Guess Who and Humble Pie.
Getting back to his love of comics, Lambert amassed a giant collection of old and new comics and began writing about them, working with sci-fi great, Ron Goulart, on a Batman book. About that time he began teaching a comic book class at Lakeland Community College for a decade, switching over to also lecturing on film, Hitchcock and Orson Welles.
Lambert then was approached to help write the national best seller, “Superman at 50” book, one of the first academic looks at super heroes. From there he became a columnist for the News Herald for a dozen years. He wrote humor, features, reviews and of course a weekly comic book column. It was at this point that he was approached to write a national comic book entitled, “Happy,” while also writing for the White House as Mrs. Barbara Bush had Chris write for her PLUS program (Project Literacy U. S.).
Writing for television came next as Mr. Lambert contributed to an episode of, “VH-1, Behind the Music.” Chris then began writing and performing his own radio show on the subject of comic books. The show ran for three years.
More recently, Mr. Lambert has been writing adventure novels, and writing for his web-site, E-Comics Gazette. His blog on comic books, “Comics: Don’t Get Me Started!” is seen through the News-Herald blog site. In a recent contest of bloggers/ columnists/writers, Mr. Lambert finished 3rd in the entire country.
Now he spends his time writing more novels and research essays for Kirby Kollector, Alter-Ego and more, while finishing up a three year stint as a radio talk show host and performing his one man play, “Orson Welles, a Life.”
He frequently speaks at Barnes and Noble in Mentor and at local libraries and can be reached at HERE.
