This Comic Stuff Has Gone Too Far

“I had the most terrible dream last night,” Stephanie told me earlier today. “Josh Howard was in a car wreck and suffered head trauma. It was all over the radio and TV but you were out of town and I was trying to get the news to you.”

“You know the comic stuff has gone too far when your wife is dreaming about it!” she said.

I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or be creeped out. Why the hell was my wife dreaming about comic creators and car wrecks? And why Josh Howard? Should I take this as a sign that I should be hunting down signed back issues or asking him to draw me another Dejah Thoris?

Regardless, my wife and I both wish Mr. Howard a long, healthy life creating comics. But for now, maybe I should keep the news about his new Eve series to myself.

I finally figured out why I’m into comics one day but not the next. The reasons probably won’t surprise you, but my solution just might. Look for more information in the coming days...

I'd be more worried about why she's dreaming about Josh Howard specifically ;)

Hahaha. You know, now that I think about it, I bet it's because I saw someone the other day who looked just like him. We were downtown at dinner, and I told her I thought it might be him. Of course, it wasn't, so I wonder if that's what triggered it. At least, I hope that's what it was.
