Martha Thomases: My NYCC Shoes

Martha Thomases

Martha Thomases brought more comics to the attention of more people than anyone else in the industry. Her work promoting The Death of Superman made an entire nation share in the tragedy of one of our most iconic American heroes. As a freelance journalist, she has been published in the Village Voice, High Times, Spy, the National Lampoon, Metropolitan Home, and more. For Marvel comics she created the series Dakota North. Martha worked as a researcher and assistant for the author Norman Mailer on several of his books, including the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Executioner's Song, On Women and Their Elegance, Ancient Evenings, and Harlot's Ghost.

    I still want to attend one of these huge Comic Cons one of these days, just to say, “Yeah, been there, done that.”

      Say it anyway. No one will check.

      Although if you come to NYC, I now have a guest room.

    Work always seems to interfere with my going to the NYCC, Martha. One of these years…

    Wow, if I could afford the flight, I’d be there. If, by chance, you happen to be around John Barrowman, get a hug for me, or a photo/autograph. I actually am astounded at how much I like him, his interviews and fan interactions all say he’s a great guy. And his acting is good.

    And hit Steve Moffat for me. Tell him there are a thousand holes in his time-travel issue with the Ponds, and that the backwards living River is a great idea, but they’re goofing on how she should be reacting to time, and how she and the Doctor would see their lives. Nice try, but wrong. The Doctor won’t forget her in our timeline, she will forget the Doctor as she grows “younger.” Oh, and get the Doctor’s daughter back in the game, eh? OK, that should do it…
