Comments

  1. Batton is one of the best in the biz. Supernatural Law is an inspired body of work, and his work on Archie and The Simpsons will cement his standing in the hearts and minds of today’s youth, and generations to come.

  2. Seconded. Lash is a giant talent and deserves greater recognition for his many years of top-notch work.

  3. The Radioactive Man crossover was great! And the ending! What a shocker!

  4. Thanks for the plug, Heidi! I appreciate it. And thanks much, Christopher, Marcus and Torsten! Hope to see you all next week!

    A friend is picking up a copy of Radioactive Man Trade at the Con.

    Why is there not a Bongo Comis website yet?

    Using the Wayback Machine at http://www.archive.org to search the http://www.bongocomics.com domain indicated that a Web site was “under construction” from July 2001 to January 2008; the URL still brings up an “under construction” page. There’s anecdotal evidence that 20th Century Fox was reluctant to approve the use of Simpsons material.
