Rob Kelly I knew there was only one suitable image for our blog header--a shot of my Dad, age eight, reading a comic book!
Growing up, I sometimes felt like my Dad wondered who the hell this kid was, who was so consumed with comic books, cartoons, art, and other internal, inside activities, rather than sports or more gregarious hobbies.
To my Dad's credit, he never tried to change me, but I did always have that in the back of my mind. So imagine my surprise when I found the above picture!
It seems that even though the comic-reading habit never made it out my Dad's childhood, the DNA was there.
(btw, my Dad is reading The Shadow Comics, Volume 2 #2, cover-dated January 1942)
