"The cover struck me as a adumbrating Lori's intro a decade later, although the mermaid in the story is just actress Ann Blythe playing one.
Ann Blythe was a real actress, the star of Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948). So the story is…"
"I watched Invitation to a Gunfighter (1964). This is a strong character study Western starring Yul Brunner, set just after the Civil War. George Segal plays a returned rebel. Pat Hingle, who played the judge in Hang 'Em High, plays…"
"I'm sure Gary Frank's variant cover to Generations Forged #1 is a homage, but I can't name the original.

Henry K has asked me to relay an invitation to you: I'd appreciate it if you could let Luke Blanchard, Phillip Portelli, and anyone else who posted in my "NEW GODS", "WESTERNS" and "BIBLE" threads know about my KIRBY LAND group.
