July 1999. The Moon breaks away from the Earth, according to Gerry Anderson. Prince is out partying like it's 1999. In theaters: American Pie, Blair Witch Project, Eyes Wide Shut. On tv: X-Files, The Simpson, That 70s Show, Ally McBeal, Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, Will & Grace, News Radio, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, Law & Order. My comic selections:
Thank Kirby for James Robinson and Alan moore; or, I might not have been reading much of anything. Well, there were some other indie comics, at this time, ad the wait for another Hellboy series. Grendel presented its darkest story of all: Devil's Child, featuring the lost years of Stacy Palumbo, between the events of Devil By The Deed (the original Hunter Rose story, after the Primer stuff) and Devil's Legacy (the regular series opening storyline), written by Dian Schutz. Stacy's life was pretty dark and horrifying and this really shows why. Not a book I've revisited, more than once.
"Fortunately, ah keep mah feathers numbered for just such an emergency!"
I don;t think I was getting much at the time as finances were an issue, but I remember getting...
