Hello everyone, hope all is well. Today it was announced that legendary New York journalist/editor, Pete Hamill passed away at the age of 85, after complications from a fall.
So why would I talk about such a great writer within the confines of a "comic book" blog? Easy answer...in his autobiography, "A Drinking Life," Hamill loved comics and even admitted to wanting to write them for a living until the journalism bug hit him.
I met Hamill at a lecture series a few years back and got to talk to him at some length before the show. Of course we talked about comics and he admitted that he had a copy of Bomba,the Jungle Boy by his bedside for his whole life.That's what I call a comic book lover !!! Take care and adopt a (Pete Hamill ) book or comic today!
