Trevor Ashfield On Before Before Watchmen There Was Spain Rodriguez
posted April 25, 2012

I just want to send you a short note of praise for all that you are doing on The Comics Reporter. Your response to the PR deluge on Before Watchmen -- counter-posting material on Spain Rodriguez -- is a more than fitting response.

Spain is just the greatest. I like your links very much so far; I just want to see more.

I remember first seeing his work in an auto-bio story he did years ago, on a fight he got into into at a concert -- The Five Satins -- that rolled so many things together about being a young man, in a tough town, in a tough time. I am so eagerly awaiting the new collection of his work that Fantagraphics is supposed to be putting out one of these days.
