"I tried Hex Wives, Mark, but I just couldn't get into it. I think I made it to about 4 issues. I liked the idea of the series, I just wasn't a fan of its actual execution."

The narrative opens with history: witches in Salem, Mass. in 1692; Pawling, NY in 1777; South Pass City, Wyoming in 1873; and finally New Orleans in 2005. All along a…See More

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments
