I remember Roy Thomas saying that one of the things he admired about Stan was that if he got you to work for Marvel with promises you'd have enough business to pay your rent, by god, he'd see you got it.

"I'll read some stuff online, but an awful lot of ebooks go on my kindle to die of neglect.
However my library's streaming service has a lot of graphic novels only available that way so I compromise. Sure as heck preferable to spending my…"
""I want to read the issue..."
You know, after I posted yesterday I remembered that these issues are available online and I have read some of them. but reading something on a screen is so antithetical to the act of "reading"…"

"I'm confused (but I'm easily confused).
Are you starting your discussion with the first post-Lee/Ditko issue (ST 143), or the first post-Ditko issue (ST 147), or Dr. Strange 169?
I have the first 3 Masterworks, so I can join in…"

I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
