    Martha, you always crack me up. In many ways we had almost the same childhood. I remember my asking my uncle Ray (God rest his soul) to stop at the drug store after church so I could pick up a special comic. Well, he did and I still have the copy or 80 Page Giant #8 More Secret Origins I bought that day. In a way it's my Holy Grail from those days and it is dear to my heart. I often refer to the crazier days at work to 'Anything Can Happen Day'. I'm excited about the announcement you're going to make Sunday. Good luck, you guys have worked hard and I envy you. You're going to be taking comics one step closer to the future.

    Personally, I always liked the Engineer version of the half-full glass; "Why, it's a poorly designed glass that has twice the capacity needed to hold the water!"
