I’ve let almost a week slip by with only a couple of comment replies posted. Sorry. I’ve been immersed in Doctor Fate. I’ll post some thoughts on the series when I finish this script. I’m experimenting a bit (always dangerous) and learning a few things (always interesting — to me, anyway).

I suppose the title says it all, doesn’t it? Bitch, bitch, moan, moan…
Oh, sure you are. Well, from a link on Steve’s web site, anyway. In an interview for Wizard.com, Marvel editor Tom Brevoort relates the story of the worst mistake he ever made. Basically, I’m it.

I’m amazed at how these brief quasi-meditations seem to evoke so many comments. Here’s one more for you.
