As I’m sure my followers are aware, I live in New Jersey. We got hit really bad by the storm. I lost power for two weeks, one of my family’s houses got destroyed, and (as petty as this sounds) I was super bummed that I was unable to get to a comic book store when the latest issue of Captain Marvel came out. I reached out to Tumblr for someone to send it my way. The first person to respond to my post was none other than Kelly Sue Deconnick. Out of the kindness of her heart, she decided to mail it (AS WELL AS SIGN IT) and after going through the still wonky New Jersey mailing system, it has arrived! I plan on framing it and displaying it in my apartment, where I can forever remember the time that a fantastic author reached out when I was trying to find some sense of normalcy after a really rough time. After I read it, of course.
Thank you so, so much, Ms. Deconnick. I know there’s some sort of wordplay I can probably use right now pertaining to you being my hero and you writing one of my favorite superheroes, but I’ll avoid it. I just want to thank you so so much for being another amazing person I have been able to interact with through comic books.
