Comics Ate My Brain

Not a dream! Not a hoax! Not an imaginary story!

Yeah, yeah, I know … another weekend gone by with no scans posted, and no new-comics roundups.

Well, this time I have a good excuse … I became a dad! Mary Helen (a/k/a the Best Wife Ever) and I welcomed our daughter Olivia into the world at 8:36 Central time on Saturday, August 9.

We did miss the big “08/08/08” convergence, but that’s OK. Everyone is home from the hospital now and we are getting Olivia adjusted to a good routine. (Obviously we are also adjusting to her.)

Naturally I hope she acquires her dad’s tastes in comics, space operas, etc. I put a Dean Trippe Supergirl print in her nursery, to get her started out right.

Anyway, gotta go — lots to do! Back before too long, I hope.


  1. Haha, congratulations, Tom & Mary Helen! Welcome to fandom, Olivia. Don't worry, there'll be lots of great superheroes for you. I'll make sure of it. 🙂

  6. If you were really a fan, you would have named her Kara. :)Congratulations. Don’t worry; I’m sure that little Olivia will have lots of adopted “aunts” and “uncles” who will be more than happy to nurture an interest in comics.
