  1. You’n me both, brudder! In the early-1990s, a sales rep at DC dropped a proposal for a Japanese property on my desk and asked me what I thought about it, in regards to DC picking up the U.S. publishing rights. I read, vomited a little in my mouth, and told the rep I thought it was one of the dumbest things I’d ever read, so DC passed on Power Rangers. Happy New year, John!
