  1. Those two Batman covers are pretty good the one thing that sticks out on this page even if for *all the wrong reasons* is… SPACE PUNISHER! That’s Bat-sh*t Crazy – have I fallen through a temporal tear back to the ’90s?! Remember Kids – Crack Is Wack:).
    P. S. Jameson, did you receive my reply to my email? If not my email’s gone wonky; perhaps Space Punisher could kick its ass for me? Where are you, Space Frank Castle, WHERE?! What’s that? Oh yeah, that’s right, you’re in… SPACE! Say hello to Link Hogthrob for me. That’s “Say Hello” not “Kill”. Good man, Space Frank.
