"I'll one up you, John. I announced Action Lad's birth on the old Board almost 15 years ago, and now he's taller than me. I'm not only getting older, I'm apparently getting shorter, too!"

"It's also true that a Volume 2 has been solicited, and that probably does venture into new, uncollected territory. I may feel compelled to buy Vol. 1 just because mismatched collections give me the heebie-jeebies. {Sigh}"

"I love the sheer insanity of that summary, especially the moment when it becomes crystal clear that this was one of those "the cover came first" stories."

Doctor Hmmm? replied to Cavaliere (moderator emeritus)'s discussion What are you watching right now?
"I remember liking it, without actually thinking it was very good. If that makes sense. I just finished binge-watching the 1st season of Titans. I could have done with a few fewer F-bombs, but I'm up for Season 2."

Thanks fot the welcome! Man, you ARE old! I don't even want to think about how long I've been writing my column. I figured I had a half-dozen topics tops, but they just keep coming. I'm glad you enjoy it.

I take that very kindly, sir!

I appreciate you taking the time to tell me that. In fact, I'm right in the middle of preparing the next Deck Log entry when I took a moment to check my new e-mail.

I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column. Many moons ago, when Rich Lane approached me with the idea, my first concern (after wondering if there was enough material to keep a Silver-Age column going for long) was if anybody would have any interest in reading it.

The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.

Much obliged for the kind words!

Asked if you were willing to "friend" me some time ago, but haven't heard back yet. Was it something I said?
