I'm so excited. Why am I excited? Because Tom Spurgeon, my fave comics critic and boss of comicsreporter.com, is sending me a free copy of the Comics Journal from back when he edited it (I was the first to email in and ask). The Journal's a good mag and Spurgeon's editorship was splendid, but it's not so much the mag; it's getting a freebie from someone I've never met but long admired. On this blog I try to emulate Spurgeon's ideosyncratic clarity and wit; it's cool to have such a random connection pop up between us. It's a bit like getting a note from a favorite celebrity; not life-changing, but cheering.
You take your pleasures where you can, I reckon.
