Scarce Marvel Comics Variants and 500 Archie Digests On Sale
Today's newsletter is coming to you from sunny Santa Fe, where for the first time in three years
I am being able to indulge my beloved wife, Nanette, with a short vacation. If you have been following
my newsletter for a while you may remember that Nanette became very ill with the intestinal ailment
two years ago. After dropping to only 113 lbs, and requiring a fecal replacement transplant, Nanette
finally managed to (mostly) recover from that potentially fatal antibiotic-resistant bacterium.

If suffering from
wasn't bad enough, nearly a year being sick from that illness then contributed to the muscle weakness
and loss of balance that caused Nanette to fall at our farm early last year, and break her arm in two
places. It took her six months to recover from her arm injury, at which time she agreed last winter to
have her long-delayed hip-replacement surgery. Recovery from that surgery was much slower than anticipated,
in all probability because her immune system was still being affected by the long-term consequences of her
illness. At long last, however, Nanette felt well enough a month ago to ask me to take her to
at Santa Clara Pueblo (August 12th), to view the sacred dances. How could I possibly say no?

In any event, we have been tucked away in a small Route 66 motel in Santa Fe this week, visiting with
friends who live in this area, and reading good books. I have also been researching extensively online to
facilitate writing my upcoming graphic novel about the impact of
legacy on today's world. The general outline of the graphic novel is now done, and at 3 AM this morning I
awoke and began writing my concept for our protagonist, and the first chapter. I will be driving down to
Albuquerque this afternoon to meet with a couple of friends who I will be including in the book and taking
photos of the location where the opening sequences of the story takes place. Finally being able to bring this
book to fruition is great!
