The mere thought of escaping university has already spurred me to write A LOT of fiction (which may or may not lead to anything–but I’m sure having fun with it)–and that excitement could very well spill over onto this blog too!
I don’t think I’ll continue with the Roy Thomas stuff right now though… Instead, I believe I’ll do some ranting about Mark Gruenwald’s much-neglected (and more topical than ever!) run on Captain America (in a format similar to the one currently serving Jason Powell so well, over at Geoff Klock’s blog). I’ve been itching to re-read those. Haven’t you?
good afternoon friends!
