Drjohnrock replied to Chris Fluit's discussion Ten for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame

"Hmm, the crew that followed Thor around in the issue Mr. Gray references--did it include reporter Harris Hobbs? He was a recurring character in Jounrney Into Mystery/Thor, although his appearances, IIRC, were widely spaced"
