Dis-Connected Comics

Hello, everyone. Hope all is well. With the recent news that DC Comics had started firing people and restructuring contracts and deals I'm wondering if the DC in DC Comics might not stand for Dis-Connected Comics. More to come later. Take care and remember to adopt a (if they're still around) DC Comic today!

Pete Hamill- Journalist, Editor, Comics Lover

      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 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!
