* there's a long feature here about a series of Marvel Universe trading cards and the impact they had on a number of professionals and industry folk. That is one weird element to comics culture; you can never tell what's going to hit with people.
* I missed the 60th anniversary of Hi And Lois. Congratulations to all involved; that's a hell of an achievement. That is a full contractual lifetime run of a strip + five bonus years four times. Hi & Lois was a solid strip in its day, sort of halfway between Blondie and Family Circus tonally with a more believable suburban setting. It's hard to imagine my reading it now with much anticipation or joy, but I'm sure it's still someone's favorite comic.
