I'm an early bird, so I'll join the crew: Hi!
I'm Johanna Draper Carlson. You may know me from Comics Worth Reading. Or before that, Usenet. Or before that, CompuServe... I remember those days, Brian, and I loved reading that history.
I'm not nearly as creative as some of these other folks here, but I am quite opinionated, and I'm honored to be one of the gang. I'll be starting my contributions with a look at the Del Rey manga line, since many of the guys here already cover superheroes brilliantly. (Although feedback is welcome, dear readers, if there's anything in particular you'd like an opinion on.)
