They printed my letter and I didn’t even know it
I recently googled my own name and discovered I had a letter to the editor printed in Comics Collector (Issue No. 6) that I didn’t remember writing, let alone seeing in print. The letter was not printed online, only mentioned in a description of the contents of the magazine. I was able buy a copy of the magazine through JC’s Comics in Cuyahoga Falls (for only $4) who ordered it online from a comicbook store in Texas. It’s funny that the headline at the top of the cover says, “Great comics you might be missing.” How about my published letter to the editor I missed!
Comics Colletor Editors Don and Maggie Thompson had devoted nearly an entire page to my letter, printing the letter itself, an informative response and two cartoon panels of “Our Boarding House.” I had purchased several previous issues of Comics Collector while I was in high school, but I missed this one. I think that’s because it came out around the time I started attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I could have had a lot of fun at Eide’s (the big comicbook store in Pittsburgh) pulling this issue off of the rack and showing my new college friends the letter I wrote in a national publication.
