"I've long thought that there are two types of super heroes; "adult" age (e.g., Batman, Reed Richards, etc.) and "young" age (the X-Men, the Human Torch, the Legion of Super-Heroes). I figured around 28 for adult heroes and…"

Eric L. Sofer replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Kevin Conroy
"I still remember the first Batman: The Animated Adventures" and how impressed I was with Kevin Conroy's Batman.... he sounded perfect (a lot better than Olan Soule for the nature of the cartoon.) This kinda stings. R.I.P. Batman."

Eric,

 

All I can say is "Aw, damn!"  For weeks now, I've been meaning to state in a comment to one of my Deck Log articles how much I appreciate your unflagging support and your incisive commentary on my column.  I kept putting it off because I never found the right place, or was too busy to add a comment, or any of the hundred of things we put off doing stuff we should.

 

Of all the members of this board, you were my most loyal reader, and compliment or criticism or just plain commentary, I always looked forward to seeing you post a comment.  You're one of the Silver-Age experts who kept me on my toes.

 

So I shall miss your presence here, probably more than most.  But it's your decision, friend.  I don't stand in your shoes.  Each of us has to determine what is right for himself and then act accordingly.  I'd prefer you stay, but if you feel you have to go, then go with my blessing.  And my regrets.

 

Godspeed,

Adam
