I’ve come to know Mark Waid more and more as he seems to make it Baltimore Comic-Con every year. So it was a no brainer for me to attend the Guest of Honor panel in which he was featured. The panel turned out to be a combination roast/toast in which one of the participants gave a great speech about Mark. Near the end he tells the story of how a Superman story meant a lot to him growing up. His reaction is a perfect example of how comics can move us just as much as any other creative work.

Eric was an avid comic reader in the late 1990s. He then took a hiatus from comic reading until 2011 when he dove head-first back into comics. Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
