  1. Hey, so what’d you think of Men and Cartoons? I wasn’t so crazy about the Vision story, but I liked Super Goat-Man.

    sugar bean, have you ever ventured into the Preacher series?

  3. brd says:

    Do you recommend one or the other of the Jack Butler books?

  4. gorjus says:

    Read Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock. It’s huge. Nightshade is for the advanced fan who likes a health dose of science fiction.

  5. brd says:

    Do you like Philip Glass’ music? I really like most of his stuff. Have you listened to the the CIVIL warS? It is most interesting.
