August 27, 2017 7:12 pm Although mainly a trades guy I've been buying the potw lately and loving the variety. Seems like dc is on the up for a while again. The Kirkby energy here was great - I highly recommend the big book by evanier to put it all in context. 600 question - we all know the British Invasion in the 80's Has there been a similar nation based infusion of talent. Why hasn't there been a second british wave from 2000ad or has it been more drip feeding. US comics belong to the world man ! Be proud.
September 1, 2013 5:33 pm BEST WEBSITE EVER. I've been with you guys from Wales uk for over 5 years. There simply is no better comics forum. Funny, sane, informed, balanced, positive, creative. Your daily work will be hugely missed. I hope that it wasn't just financed that closed you down ,as you are SO much better than a lot of big name sites out there. I hope the podcast only version continued to work well for you and that your personal circumstances stay secure. You've shared a lot. You deserve better. But if YOU made the decision then I am sure it was the right one. May you get to Internet heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead. Pob lwc as we say in Wales. .... I'm gonna go.,,,... I've some dust in my eye.

May 24, 2013 7:26 am A different Generation, but the same story. I first encountered Hal in his "Hard travelling heroes" days. Ive stayed with him, left, and come back to him a few times. But the idea of Willpower over fear is a strong one. When GL: Mosaic dame out over 20 years ago they gave away free plastic rings. I've been using that ring EVERY Year for over 2 decades as a teacher, telling my kids about hope, will and effort during exams. It's such a part of my preparation for the kids that they freak out a little if they dont see me wearing it on exam day! Best of Luck to Queens Park HIgh School Chester class of 2013 ....

March 2, 2013 1:26 pm Great plan. You can always then give the cash to charity.
January 18, 2013 4:52 pm Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing. Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. Shakespeare Take care Ron, you will be sadly missed...... Give 'em helll at image! Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - - -Dylan Thomas
