By the way, my (nonexistent) secretary alerts me that this is the ONE HUNDREDTH ARTICLE posted in The Hayfamzone Blog. That was easy! This blog was initiated in the summer of 2006 and dedicated in every way to the Sense of Wonder that Jack Kirby couldn't help but create every time his pencil came down and glided along a piece of paper.
Hooray for Jack Kirby!
