While Karen and Doug are on vacation in January, our readers have
been entrusted with carrying on the daily conversations. Today's "Spotlight On..." is a do-it-yourselfer. As we've done in the past, the first
commenter gets to pick today's topic of conversation.
speaking, "Spotlight On..." is for single creators. For example, in the
past we've started conversations on Barry Windsor-Smith, John Romita, and Joe Sinnott. We'd appreciate conversations that lean toward the positive side of things; rip jobs should be avoided. This is not to say that we don't tolerate honesty, but let's try to keep the focus on the meritorious aspect of a life spent in comics.
Karen and Doug met on the Avengers Assemble! message board back in September 2006. On June 16 2009 they went live with the Bronze Age Babies blog, sharing their love for 1970s and '80s pop culture with readers who happen by each day. You'll find conversations on comics, TV, music, movies, toys, food... just about anything that evokes memories of our beloved pasts!
Doug is a high school social science teacher and department chairman living south of Chicago; he also does contract work for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. He is married with two sons in college.
Karen originally hails from northern California and now works in scientific research/writing in the Phoenix area. She often contributes articles to Back Issue magazine. She is married.
Believe it or not, the Bronze Age Babies have never spoken to each other...
