SwanShadow Thinks Out Loud

Before I go off to sleep, SwanShadow said some very nice things about me on his blog and mentioned comic book writer/artist William Messner-Loebs in the same paragraph.

"In the comics, the superheroes wear colorful costumes and fight megalomaniacal villains. In real life, the true superheroes are ordinary folks like Sam Johnson, patiently awaiting a kidney transplant but still taking time to entertain his legion of fans via radio and weblog, and William Messner-Loebs, whose story I hope will fall across the desk of some editor at Marvel or DC and motivate that person to give him a book to write or draw."

Thanks S.S., But I'm just a guy who wishes he could have been a better stand up so he could have gotten a tv deal out of it so he could finally have that dream talk show. You guys want to read about a real hero? Try not to cry when you read about Loeb. That man is a hero. Bless him. And, bless you too, SwanShadow. Good night.
