Richard Mantle replied to Cavaliere (moderator emeritus)'s discussion What are you watching right now?
"TITANS has arrived on Netflix (I'm in the UK). So far I've watched the first 4 episodes. Mrs Mantle is still on-board which shows an appeal to 'non-geeks'  although she dislikes the profanity. So far I'm loving it…"

Richard Mantle replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion What Should Be Collected Next?
"How about the Dan Jurgans Teen Titans series? Not too ground-breaking but beautiful art and the Warlord storyline along with the spotlight on the old guard issues (sooo like Titans Hunt decades later!) were highlights for me."

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!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
