"Thanks for posting that. The author's point about the personal nature of kids' reading is interesting. I think it explains why there's a place for comics in a world with TV. They're visual like TV, but more personal."

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.

After a Jack Kirby Fan Group forum was hijacked by an unscrupulous individual on Facebook, Henry began his own forum, titled "Kirbyland" where he, and like-minded individuals continue to promote their beliefs on Facebook.    

He wanted you to know.
