Note: I originally wrote this as a single post, but it turned out to be much too long for a single reading, so I divided it up into 4 parts; 1 for each artist. Someone raised the question of who I would choose to be on my Mt. Rushmore of comic book artists. That is, […]

R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

Wednesday , 19, August 2015 Comments Off on R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

I awoke to the sad news this morning that Yvonne Craig had passed away Monday evening at the age of 78 from metastatic breast cancer that had spread to her liver. The first time I saw Ms. Craig was in 1967 when she joined the Batman TV show’s third and final season as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. […]

This was up in one of the Facebook groups and I thought it was hilarious because A. the kid Tommy seriously tries to tackle the Man of Steel and gets broken because of it and B. Superman is a dick about it; just winking and smiling. My daughter would say Tommy is Seattle and Superman […]

Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

I’ve still got a bit of cough and congestion and I’m still feeling very tired, but at least I don’t have all those things magnified along with the aches, fever and headache I went through most […]
