To the Rooftops

Well ok, it's a new morning here. We're taking a breather from the Hand of Fire/Jack Kirby roundtable. The third and final part will post tomorrow.

In the meantime, Hernan Migoya (with translation help from Eric Reynolds) was kind enough to pen an obituary of his friend Josep Maria Berenguer, the legendary editor and publisher of El Vibora and the La Cupula. Bernguer sounds like a rare kind of publishing raconteur, and Migoya's obit along with Eric's tribute, make me wish I'd met him. Meanwhile, Sean T. Collins has a review of Benjamin Marra's Night Business #4, concluding our Marra twofer, as promised yesterday by Tim.
