Luke Blanchard replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion I get to write about comics!
"You could potentially get a list out of flying cars in comics. The idea sounds a little tepid to me, but identifying their makes could perk it up for car nuts. I can think of the Star-Rocket Racer from "Star-Spangled Kid",…"

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.
