Bloggerinos! Raph here, back from a long absence. The reason for this absence is a sad one: I’m no longer a member of the Midtown Comics Times Square staff. I’ve spent the last six years at Midtown Comics Times Square, two of them as the floor manager, and I’ve made a lot of friends and had a lot of terrific memories. Here are just a few memories I’d like to share with you.

Now what’s better than one story starring Superman? Try four. And that’s exactly what readers got with Superman #1 in June 1939. Ever since he exploded onto the newsstand scene in 1938, Superman was a big seller, and giving the guy his own book was the best way to honor that achievement. As great as his appearances were in Action Comics, fans just couldn’t wait a whole season for only one Superman story. So National gave their readers what they wanted: more Superman!

Kirkman, in addition to being a writer, is one of five partners at Image Comics, one of the leading indie comic publishers in the industry. Despite being the only partner who’s not a co-founder, it hasn’t stopped him from becoming something of a poster child for the company—his flagship comic series is on its whopping 129th issue and has spawned one of the highest rated cable TV dramas. It’s kind of tough to top that.
But Image has been changing the comics industry long before Walking Dead was ever a thing.
