Takin' Care of Business

Here's a good news/bad news post.The bad news:As some of you may know, I was laid off from The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis back in late March.This didn't come as that great a surprise. Even though I'd worked there for 27 years, the last 10-15 had been under a sword of Damocles for all of us.

It became evident that no one was safe, no matter how…See More

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
