I´m late but it’s worth the wait. I have a wonderful interview with former writer and production designer Bob Rozakis on the subject of the 2-Volume set Cancelled Comic Cavalcade – a book that is both lost in time and a mythical creature. Plus we disclose what it actually collects. You may be surprised at how much talent is in this thing!

The Superbowl has come and gone. I didn´t get to go, and I´m not going to lose any sleep over it.

Today I go over the three books from the DC Comics Fireside series Heart Throbs, America at War and Mysteries In Space. Two of the books are cool and one is very cheesy, but all are worth picking up for the serious collector.

I also answer some emails and look for my interview on Jazma Online, it should be up on Friday February 10th.
