Next time, it’ll just be a picture of me doing fingerguns.

1. Thanks to everyone who helped support us in the wake of this really quite annoying act of vandalism…it means quite a lot to us. And our new window should be installed today!

2. I’m beginning to get inquiries for our Retailer Edition of Valiant’s Armor Hunters…it seems only about 45 retailers reached the order plateau to receive the personalized covers, and some folks are trying to get all of them. …After looking at the others, I suppose I should have put a wee bit more effort into ours, but it has Seth’s name and Ralph’s cool logo by pal Tom, along with the website address and the all-important “since 1980” so I guess it’s okay. But it was literally like “hey, we need the art in a day or two” and I was all “(gulp) oh, yeah, art” and I had nuthin’. Next time, I’ll have something fancier ready to go!

3. So I finally got to the Steve Ditko “Killjoy” back-ups in my E-Man reading. Those comics may be the best thing I’ve read all year.

    Jesus, those Killjoy comics are INSANE. They read like fever dreams. I feel like I should drink some NyQuil and go to bed right now.

  • Jim Kosmicki says:

    Killjoy was by far the best of the backups – on a par with The Question and Wander for best Charlton backups ever

    I’ve always loved Killjoy. I would buy the heck out of a Killjoy series.

    Off subject: What’s Hulk wearing on the latest Comic Shop News? Power pants?

  • That’s S.S.S. Snake.

    Took a look at the scans of those Killjoy stories over at Diversions of the Groovy Kind. Really beautiful artwork. But as for the writing, wow, you really can not say the words “subtle” and “Steve Ditko” in the same sentence, can you?

    Looking at those stories, it’s amazing to think that Ditko and Denny O’Neil ever worked together on anything, considering their diametrically opposed political views.

    That said, I’m suddenly wondering how a team-up between Ditko’s original Objectivist version of The Question and O’Neil’s early 1970s ultra-left wing Green Arrow would have played out!
