This mutant cold bug has kept me incapacitated for the last couple weeks. I barely managed to write my last column and a review. But now I’m coming around and ready to resume recording more video editions for the Comic Culture Warrior You Tube Channel, as well as hit the column a little harder.
Plus, there may be some interesting developments in where you’ll see the CCW next.
Details to come…

Comic Collector John Borger left the U of M his collection of 40,000 comics, including entire runs of Sandman and Watchmen. It gets a nice, touching write-up in the MinnPost where Mr. Borger’s wife reminisces about how she met her husband and how his obsession with comics practically took over their living spaces.
There’s something about a major university accepting such a bequest that really gives the perception of what’s ‘valuable’ a real paradigm shift.
I mean…we’re talking about comic books, right?
Those things our moms threw out or gave away when we went off to college? That she’d wonder aloud why we spent our entire allowances on and pile up in our closets?
SEE MOM! I TOLD YOU THEY WERE WORTH SOMETHING!!!
(Ok…I think I’ve got some issues I need to work out here…)
