it made me smile to read that longshot was on the list. i remembered (hopefuly correctly) when you were in 6th grade you told me that longshot was your favorite super hero. at the time i had only read of him in the marvel handbook. now, 17 or so years later, i still do not understand that character. i'm glad that you still do!! ha ha ha

Glad you like it Joe. There's a few more good ones, but I thought you'd have those.

One is an actual newspaper ad for the serials, framed.

"86. the idea of the current Batgirl"

My thoughts exactly.

I love the /idea/, but something in the execution is lacking, something I can't quite put my finger on.
