Most of you know I've been a journalist, mostly as a copy editor, for many, many moons. I did start out as a reporter for a not-even-semi-metropolitan daily newspaper, but most of my writing for the past several years is what I've posted here in various iterations of the Comics Cave.

Late last year, a dear friend steered me to a freelance job writing about comics. I applied, armed with writing samples culled from what I've posted here and kind guidance from some stalwart members of the Legion. They liked what they saw, but asked for an original sample ... then put me on a trial basis. 

So, I am now writing lists for CBR.com. I'm supposed to do two or three a week, and they're on comics, or comics-related movies, or comics-related TV shows. My latest one is a topic near and dear to my heart: "The 15 Best Comic Book Journalists". An archive of my other lists are here.

Of course, I can trust you guys with my secret identity, being fellow members of the Legion. I'm sure no one has any secret protocols to take me out in case I go rogue ....

I altered my editor and he fixed it. Thanks for flagging that, Richard.

When you altered your editor, did the editor's spouse object? Sorry. photo tongue.gif

The article now refers to "artists Jack Kirby and France Herron". Herron was a writer, not an artist. He's sometimes called Ed Herron. Kirby attributed the Red Skull's creation to him in an interview (in Comics Feature or Amazing Heroes, I think. There's a list of Kirby's interviews here.)

(altered)

Also, I fear the editor never corrected the kryptonite date typo in the Superman Firsts article.
