Five years ago today, on August 14, 2008, we began this thing – and, lo and behold, we’re still here! ...And ready to plumb the depths of our Image Archive to celebrate the occasion.
That means we’ve been active longer than…
LOST IN SPACE.
VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
The EXCLUSIVE era of Whitman Comics, with no concurrent Gold Key titles.
Disney Comics (Disney's own In-house brand).
...And a lot of other things we regularly discuss here.
And, considering this puppy began life as “The Issue At Hand” APA and Fanzine column in 1994, we can claim a lifespan (all told) of 19 YEARS and counting! …That’s a lotta comics and DVDs covered!
I’ve said it before – and I may say it each and every August 14 – I’d never have imagined the sheer amount of FUN I’d have with this Blogging thing!
All of you who read and contribute to this Blog share in its success! And, I define it’s “success” BY that vast amount of fun! Both my group of personal friends and the many new friends we’ve made along the way are responsible for that fun.
|Put 'er there, Blogging pals!|
I’m very proud of the fact that, TIAH Blog is a “nice” place
on the Internet where “No Negativity” occurs!
There’s too much of that elsewhere, without my adding more. Oh, we may disagree here, but we’ll do so in
a civilized manner.
|Ah, that's more like it!|
You should also know how grateful I am to receive Blog comments. It means that someone took the time to read these writings – and share his or her thoughts on them.
I always offer return comments – not because I like to “have the last word”, but because I wish to acknowledge that person’s contribution to our little get-together – and to further the discussion the commenter thought enough of to continue.
Moreover, it is YOUR contributions that add unexpected dimension to posts like THIS ONE and THIS ONE, giving them a life beyond my original intentions.
Though, the greatest example of this may always be “Gold Key Comics 50th Anniversary Post” from 2012, where the comments continued to run for two full weeks. This is one case where the comments may have offered even MORE (in the variety of different areas covered and places the comments “went-to”) than the post itself. I continue to thank you for that!
We will do our best to continue to be an interesting place to visit on the topics of Comic Books, DVDs, Classic TV and Films, and to honor those persons who have made our lives all the happier with their contributions to those areas of endeavor, on the sad occasion of their passing.
And, until I can finally say we’ve “been around” longer than…
And DELL COMICS.
Aw, heck…Why not shoot for DC COMICS…
And, hey... Why not even Warner Bros. itself!
