Jon B. Cooke here. I am hoping to finish what I started and will be working on the 365 Days of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World blog. I’ll do my best to be pragmatic and reasonable — posting concise entries, for instance — and will state openly that I won’t be adding to this every day; just as I can get to it. I do regret the extremely long absence and am happy to be back. Expect some revisions to those pending entries soon.
It goes without saying one of the events that prompted me to come back is the recent passing of my friend Joe Simon, with whom I had the honor to design the second edition of his The Comic Book Makers a little over 10 years ago. Godspeed, Joe! Thanks so much for all you shared with us. My condolences to son Jim and the entire Simon family.
