Just wanted to let you know that, assuming I can get away with it, the 1980's era Batman symbol will be on the set of YHC's production of Rent. I figured it befitting, since he gave so many hope, and that's what the people of the show so desperately need.
You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”
I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”
He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

Okay. I have a major family emergency so anyone with prayers, good thoughts, or the ability to hope, I’ll take anything we can get. I’ll likely be offline for a couple of days, but thanks in advance for any good will to help someone I love.
Can you recall the first comic book you ever got? And if so, do you still have it? Mine was Captain America Vol. 1 #306 in 1985. I still have the original I got that day (A present from my Dad) and a fresh minty copy.
Captain America #1 by Mark Waid and Ron Garney.
Man, that thing was falling apart from how many times I read it.
I think it got lost in my many moves throughout my life.
