The 1938 10cent comic from Action Comics that introduced Superman to a world that didn't know they needed him has been sold for squillions of dollars. It will be all over the net so I shan't give details and anyway I find this news strangely depressing.  For others our British Broadcasing Corporation is usually reliable.

What's depressing is that I'll never get to see you draw Superman - I never got to see you draw very many characters. Am I correct in assuming your involvement with Batman was due to Alan Grant's love affair with that character? Superman was never as lucky as Bats when it came to attracting creators - because they find Batman more 'believable'? I take umbrage to that. Batman is no Button Man; now that's believable. But that's another debate altogether.

At least I'll always have the tiny images in the comic that Chip Haffenberg is reading at the motel in Button Man III (he's the receptionist).

And speaking of Button Man, I will never get over the fact that you didn't get to draw the fourth instalment. I was really looking forward to that one, especially because the protaganist/antagonist alongside Harry was female. Combine that with everything else I love about your work and the realism of the series, it would have made for a beautiful tale.

But then, we have Superflop.

If you're still taking suggestions, how about something like a web comic, done in a multi-panel newspaper strip style, or even one panel. You've written some things before, so we know you're more than capable. Maybe something like what Travis Charest did when he created his Spacegirl series; it didn't have a purpose or direction, and seventy infrequent frames later, it still doesn't seem like he knows exactly where he's going with it.

But if that seems too arduous, you could every now and then bless us with a sketch, perhaps based on requests? Starting wit
