Robert, I loved Fearbook. I've been wanting to read Whipping Boy for years. I keep meaning to get a copy on Ebay to read.

Robbie, speaking of letters pages just reminded me of my favorite letters pages/column ever, "A Flame About This High" from John Byrne's Next Men. 

Edit: On digging out my old JBNM issues I discovered the letter's page was actually called "Next!" and I've been incorrectly remembering the whole thing as "A Flame About This High" which was just the name of the column JB wrote at the end of the "Next!" letters page. Probably because that was my favorite part of the whole thing.

I can definitely see the comment on Doomsday + 1 #1 by the artist in that the cover was nothing compared to those great covers on #2-6... I still love those Byrne color Charlton covers on Doomsday and Space 1999, they're up there with those Heath and Kubert early '60s DCs (Sea Devils, Brave & the Bold, Star Spangled War)... I always wondered why there weren't a lot more covers like them back in those times as they were really beautiful! Not full paintings like Gold Key often had, but something special, an enhanced rendition of what you would get inside.
