Can't believe I read this yesterday

My favourite non-fiction book of all time was "Men of Tomorrow" by Gerard Jones.  The most accurate guide to the birth of the super-hero that I've ever read.  I'm not going to speculate on whether these charges are true or not - only Mr Jones knows the answer to that. I'm just saddened to read it.

It's always hard to judge these kinds of things. If it's true, it's monstrous. If it's not true, it sucks for him, because it's the sort of thing where people remember the accusation, but not the acquittal afterwards, if it comes.

Nooooooo!!!

Doggone it. I was a huge fan of his. Just last fall I bought his Martian Manhunter miniseries and his Guy Gardner miniseries as a result of a reborn appreciation of his work on Batman: Jazz and Batman: Fortunate Son. (And I also bought a book of his called Killing Monsters. Gah.)

I read this the other day. Horrible news.
