Goodbye, Jimmy Olsen.

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just the other day it was reported that actor Jack Larson, the actor who played Jimmy Olsen on the old, "Adventures of Superman," has passed away.  He was 87 years old.  Jimmy had his own comic book for over 150 issues from the 1950s to the 1970s.  But actor Larson found himself almost typecast and it was rare to see him on T.V.

     I enjoyed the show in reruns (I wasn't old enough to see it on first run) and have met most of the actors making up the secondary roles.  But with the passing of this fine actor (who appeared some years ago on Law and Order) all I can say is..."Jeepers, Mr. Larson!"

     Take care and adopt a (Jimmy Olsen) comic book today!

Hero to the Root

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  A couple of years ago there was an issue of Batman where the Caped Crusader, in an argument with Robin (Dick Grayson), knocked a molar out of Robin's mouth to make a point.  The point being that there was a hidden transmitter in the tooth placed there by a villain years before.  I said at the time that maybe a simple x-ray would have done the job just as nicely.  I mean, tell me Batman doesn't have an x-ray machine in his Batcave.

     I thought of this recent comic book because my dear friend Bruce, fell in a parking lot and cracked a tooth, needing surgery.  Just last month, I too, had to get an emergency root canal.  A month later, the tooth still bothers me and it is hard to concentrate on reading my weekly comic books without painkillers.

     Now you might say to me that, "what's the big deal about heroes and their choppers?"  And to that I reply, "Hey, heroes need their teeth in good working order to take a "bite" out of crime."

     Take care and remember to adopt a comic (that won't set your teeth on edge) book today!
