"I have two greatest comics ever (I'm old, I collect a lot of debris.)
But besides Fantastic Four 51 (the BEST comic ever), at the time I read Superman Annual #11, I thought it was unbeatable. Alan Moore got what I thought was EVERYTHING in it;…"
"In the Raven strip - which I thought was brilliant - we were introduced to Phoenicia. For some reason - maybe the belly dancing aspect - I thought that she was an avatar or representation or somethin' of George's wife Carol. I'm not…"
"Looking forward to the Archive v7 and the later treatment of the THUNDER agents. I did collect "Wally Wood's THUNDER Agents" and I enjoyed a lot of it. But it seemed built on what had already been established without enough new…"

All I can say is "Aw, damn!" For weeks now, I've been meaning to state in a comment to one of my Deck Log articles how much I appreciate your unflagging support and your incisive commentary on my column. I kept putting it off because I never found the right place, or was too busy to add a comment, or any of the hundred of things we put off doing stuff we should.
Of all the members of this board, you were my most loyal reader, and compliment or criticism or just plain commentary, I always looked forward to seeing you post a comment. You're one of the Silver-Age experts who kept me on my toes.
So I shall miss your presence here, probably more than most. But it's your decision, friend. I don't stand in your shoes. Each of us has to determine what is right for himself and then act accordingly. I'd prefer you stay, but if you feel you have to go, then go with my blessing. And my regrets.
