Everyone else in my family calls me whenever there is a spider in the house -- even Hunter (who's gonna be twenty in a few weeks!) doesn't wanna tackle them himself! It makes me essential! ;)

I am just now reading Reading Comics, and wanted to share with you what I ran across in it:

At one point, the author decides to provide a list of “things he loves about comics”, some of which he discusses in depth later... but then goes on to provide a list of other things he loves which won't get their own chapters. And his list goes on for several pages. And one of the things he loves about comics is this:

“Dishman, John MacLeod's minicomics superhero, whose entirely useless power is to clean and put away dirty dishes by waving his hand at them (he got it from radioactive Fiestaware) and who feels compelled to try to fight crime with it anyway”

Try to imagine my shock and delight on seeing that. When I picked the book up, I had no idea this was in there. There are some guys who know that, anytime someone writes a book about comics, their name will get dropped and their comic will get mentioned. I am not one of those guys. But thank you, Douglas Wolk, for letting me feel like one of those guys for a moment!
