    i suspect the great things kochman has done so far are just the beginnings of the major contributions he's going to make to the medium of comics that we all love. he's got the taste and the skills and the drive to spark wonderous things.

    Charlie's one of the good guys, absolutely, and the stuff he's pulling together for Abrams is impressive indeed. And I'm not just saying that because our last names are so similar we're sometimes mistaken for distant relatives ;-) (I should be so lucky as to be able to grow such impressive facial hair!)–ATK
