It's not often you find a comic that has a connection to someone you actually know, so when I saw this one at the Big Flea a while back, I had to pick it up.
Blogging buddy and role model Roger Green worked for the company that published Smilin' Ed and knew the creators well. I'd been wanting to post this for s while, but decided that today is a good time to do it for two reasons.
First, just to let him know that I'm thinking about him and to send him some cheer. The anniversary of his father's death was this week. It was right after my father died that Roger reached out to me and we bonded over having experienced the same type of loss. He's a good man.
Also, this seemed like a good way to inaugurate a new feature for the blog: Comic Book Fridays! Whenever I can remember to do it, I'll be posting something comic book related on Friday. I hope to talk about some aspects of comics that will be helpful to other junkers, but also to share a bit about my favorites, trivia, etc.
Hope you enjoy it!
