    The year my son was born. Only because I couldn't find anything recognizing the 1992 Toronto World Series win.

    I'm glad you didn't say the 1993 Toronto World Series win. To this day I'm STILL riding the Joe Carter hate train after he killed my Phillies with that home run he hit.

    I'm almost afraid to ask your opinion on Mitch Williams. But I get it.

    Probably more "vertiginous" depending on how high she is being lifted up by the tentacle.

    2006. I dealt with a lot of pain and loneliness, and found a woman who was more than my match and fell for her.

    Oh, I never blamed Mitch for what happened with Carter. He was gassed and had next to nothing left in the tank by the time game six rolled around. I blame manager Jim Fregosi more because he went to the well once too many times with Williams.

    My best year yet has yet to happen, but I'm looking forward to it.

    :P

    1985, when this appeared, was the year I came back to comics after a few years away. It was Doug Moench on BATMAN and Wolfman/Perez TITANS that did it, mostly, with Dick Grayson becoming Nightwing and the introduction of the new Robin.
    When I'm not hanging around CBR, I'm writing stuff like this... The Green Ghost and Sherlock Holmes. Find more here. Also the weekly column right here at CBR.

    1999 maybe?...



    I was a young French teacher in Casablanca, Morocco and...

    I was running at the speed of life
    Through morning's thoughts and fantasies
    Then I saw your eyes at the cross fades (secret, secret, never seen)
    Secret, secret ever green




    The secret life of Arabia
    Never here, never seen
    Secret life, ever green


    (not sure of the cover yet... I hesitate with Tintin's "Cigars of the Pharaoh" for ...hmm... reasons... The lyrics of Prince's song 1999 could work also quite well to illustrate that time, and not only because of the year : the beginning of the 21st century was less fun, geopolitically speaking, as we all know...)

    1986 was a pretty good year for me. I'd just graduated from High School and had no real grown up responsibilities yet. I spent the summer working and partying and rediscovered my love for comics when I bought this issue from one of those spinning racks at a drug store. I still have it.

    I had recorded a (rock) CD in a studio not far from Johnny Cash's home. And while I never broke nationally, a few songs did play on local radio in Nashville -- the first time you hear yourself on the radio... well, remember that scene in the movie "That Thing You Do" - yeah, the euphoria is like that. Some time that year I played at club called "The End", and I remember standing there, looking out at the audience, and the thought ran through my head... "The Ramones played here. I'm in music city, standing on the same stage, in the same spot Joey Ramone stood." I didn't matter that I never made it to the toppermost of the poppermost, right then, I was in Heaven.

    That was the best, most crazy, fun, whirlwind, year of my life.

    He's a young whippersnapper compared to me.

    Now, get off my lawn!
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    Well, in my day we didn't have all these fancy comp-u-taters and who-zits-what-zits!

    I have to go. It's time to take my pills.

    This issue was released the month that I started my career at the United States Post office. And I'm still going after 33 years.
