Thank you for the kind words, Richard. They really made my day! I am very grateful for the amount of interests in my threads, though the success of the JLA/JSA ones are surely due to the affections we have to the subject not my meager commentary.

If you are interested, I have several sub headings: "I Was Wondering", "Silver Sightings" and "Fan of Bronze".

Great to have you here and thanks again!
