    Just the concept of what's happening here does change everything. The average comic book store experience is usually not a pleasent one for me. I've done most of my shopping on the web or eBay. Hopefully this is the first step in a brave new world. Time will tell. I, for one am happy you're here.

    Well, I for one am glad you're here. It's the next step in comics evolution. Keep up the good work.

    Getting Skip Williamson's talents is a good sign. I haven't seen ol' Snappy Sammy Smoot in a while. ComicMix was already interesting and the addition of new, free, and varied comics makes it even more so.

    Good for Midnight! Martha, did you know that with some figurines, if you apply heat gently, you can reshape them? I've seen some interesting things done with those unlikely-shaped pieces.

    The "Look, Mommy! It's RuPaul!" anecdote is priceless!

    Actually, RuPaul looks BETTER than Pam Anderson!
