The piece I teased last time is up now at Loner Magazine, you can read it here:
I’M STILL HERE: A LETTER FROM 1995
It’s a departure from religion or politics, yet it’s an important journey through a part of history that’s still there but harder to find in the digital age. I was happy I was able to follow up with a loved one of one of the letter writers in a comic book from 20 years ago, but there was actually a lot more from that letters page I tried to cover but for various reasons was unable to.
I didn’t get ahold of Norrie May-Welby like I wanted. The same issue was dedicated to DC Creative Director Neal Pozner, who had just died. Pozner’s partner and caretaker until his death was future superstar Phil Jimenez, who I’ve met at conventions on multiple occasions. Unfortunately, space didn’t permit me to pursue that angle this time. Maybe someday there will be a part two.
As I say in the article, everybody has somebody else’s untold story. I hope this can inspire some other bloggers to keep someone’s memory alive like I’ve tried to do, or to help share Kevin’s story with the world. Please feel free to share any of your stories in the comments. Thanks for reading.
