N.Y. Con = big news weekend.

Sometimes, even Marvel can release an image that presses all the right buttons for a guy who grew up on Marvel's cosmic stuff in the late seventies and early eighties. Bug from Mike Golden's The Micronauts? Check. Mike Mignola's Rocket Raccoon? Check. Mike Golden/Steve Ditko's Captain Universe? Check. Steve Englehart's Mantis from The Avengers? Check. Chris Claremont's Deathbird? Why not? All soon to appear in a Keith Giffen Star-Lord comic, once my favourite Marvel character, due to his back-ups in Marvel UK's STAR WARS WEEKLY. My seven year old self found his "will they-won't they" relationship with his sexy sentient spaceship really quite exciting.

Which is why I was arrested for molesting a Ford Capri last week.
