“Here’s to Super-hero brats… They’ve got it even tougher than Carrie Fisher!” (Roy Thomas)
And here’s to The Comic Treadmill, where they really understand that the super-hero series (bolstered by a strong editor/readership interface in the lettercols) can be a fascinating thing! I’ll be reading (and, hopefully, blogging) along with H’s posts on Infinity Inc.–a title which beautifully explores the Puritan dilemma of the “half-way covenant”, and rates with Morrison’s Animal Man, Gruenwald’s Captain America, and Stern’s Power of the Atom, as the most interesting heirs of the Silver Age at Marvel (yeah I know, three ’em were published by DC, and Thomas was a Golden Age junkie–it makes no difference!)
It’s poetry time!!!
