* it's pretty quiet now in anticipation of the effort of those that have been sued for defamation by Cody Pickrodt, I think. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) particularly about men and women that are in direct need. In the meantime, one such person is Jim Wheelock and it would be great to see the effort on his behalf gain some traction.

* can't really speak to the comic that's going to result but I sure like Bruno Sammartino. That guy always filled stadiums and always seemed like 30 percent more serious than all the other wrestlers of my youth. Plus the Zybysko storyline still works.

* I don't know Pearl Low, but I like this kind of cultural-specific subject matter and that's a modest ask.

* Shannon Wheeler has put up five handsome pen-and-ink illustrations in his Etsy shop. These are not tied into a specific need, let alone a pressing one, but I do like to point out things like this. It's a really great time to be a consumer of comics and comics-related material; there is so much at your fingertips.

* Doug Tennapel always seems to do well with these things.
