Mars Rocks

There’s nothing like receiving a missive in the mail from Mars Will Send No More to spice up my day here at Longbox Graveyard Secret Headquarters!
Mars Rocks!

I see that Mars has been busy with the pen and marker!

(Touch down on Mars for details about this piece)

And on the reverse:

Postcard From Mars

We live in an age of wonders, where a postcard can travel all the way from Mars to California for the price of a single stamp!

And even more wondrous … a pending comic convention outing for the enigmatic Mastermind of Mars! I’m guessing this is the Amazing Arizona Con — let us know how it goes, Mars! And thanks for the postcard!

(My reviews of the All-New All-Different Marvel Now will resume at the end of this week … but be sure to check back here Wednesday for the most special announcement in the history of Longbox Graveyard!)

  1. I hope Mars has a great time at his con!

    Speaking on cons .. (sweet segue!) … this weekend is the San Diego Comic Fest at the swanky (ahem) Town & Country in Mission Valley. I’ll be volunteering as usual, this time with my son Jacob! I’m really looking forward to meeting Mike Royer!! Other guests of interest (to me) include Steve Leialoha, Trina Robbins, Don Glut, and Stan Sakai. The theme for the con’s cafe is a tribute to Forrest J Ackerman and his Famous Monsters magazine.

    Check it out!


    • Comic Fest isn’t on my schedule this year, but I’ve dropped in during past years — it’s a good show, I hope you and Jacob have a great time! Check out the Ackerman tribute for me — I had a life-changing meeting with Forry when I was a kid that I will always remember and appreciate.
