There's just something about old letters in a letters page that comments on blogs can't replace. Maybe it's the fact that only the least crazy are selected (you can see the non-Barr letters here:http://www.dialbforblog.com/archives/448/batfan_letters.html), or that the spelling and grammar are edited - or maybe it was just the witty names most of them had (although it probably didn't take much time to come up with "Batman's Hot Line," the Warlord's "Chain Mail" header was inspired).
I agree. I am always astonished by the depth and erudition displayed in letters to books about pajama-wearing psychopaths
"the Warlord's "Chain Mail" header was inspired"My nominee for best lettercol header of the 1980s: Grimjack's "Spill Yer Guts!"
Okay, maybe someone can help me out. The lettercol for the Hulk comic was always "Green Mail"; that feels like it's a pun of some kind, like I can almost put my finger on it, but then it eludes me. What am I missing?
See, with the new red Hulk, they could call it "Red Letter Day." That'd almost be as good as, "Let's Level with Daredevil."
