    Rob, I discovered your podcast a few months ago while painting my house, and listened to almost all of the episodes while I worked.

    Just wanted to let you know how much fun I’ve had listening and say thanks for entertaining us with your insights and stories.

    You and I are about the same age and got into comics at the same time. Listening to your stories about growing up as a comics fan reminds me so much of my own experiences, and brought back many fond memories and warm/nostalgic feelings. Truly a joy.

    One difference is that I grew up in Vegas with a single mom, so I didn’t have access to the cons. However, we had a couple of phenomenal local stores. They had occasional signings when I was in jr high and high school. Personally, I never cared about getting signatures. But that gave me the advantage of not having to stand in line! I’d find a spot in a corner nearby whoever was signing that day and just listen to them talk about comics. We had Perez, Wolfman, Claremont, and a few other Bronze Age and 80’s greats. I always enjoyed getting to meet them and see who the people were behind my favorite stories.

    Robservations truly brings me back to those times. It’s been great listening to your experiences with so many of my favorite creators, and getting to know you at the same time. Much love, Brother. I look forward to future episodes.
