I have sometimes indulged in the fantasy that I am at the gates of Heaven. St. Peter questions me about what good I have done on earth. I reply proudly that I have read and analyzed thousands of comic books – a horrible task and really a labor of love. “That counts for nothing,” says St. Peter. “Millions of children read these comics books.” “Well,” I reply, “I have also read all the articles and speeches and press releases by experts for the defense [of comic books].” “Okay,” says St. Peter. “Come in! You deserve it.”
