Walt Simonson says (actually, he said it a long time ago, but I didn’t have a computer back then…):

“…[superhero] comics is a team sport played over time where the teams change and the times change. “

He’s right! And the people who write the letters aren’t just waterboys and cheerleaders, they’re more like benchwarmers…or, better yet, the official scorers! (the metaphor is not terribly important here–but the theory is! He’s talking about a process that generates narrative “by committee”, and that’s what interests me about superheroes!)

Good day friends!
