"I'm here. Or am I there?"

I've been collecting comics since 1992. Since then, I've gotten into plenty of other characters from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and some smaller companies. I don't talk about comics with my friends, I came here to do that.

So Kyle becomes Ion.  Basically, he can do anything; and he does.  I won’t go into everything he did, but it involved stopping a war, feeding the hungry, helping John Stewart walk again, giving Jenny her Jade powers back, and finding his long lost father.  And now, the grand finale!  Remember how Tom Kalmaku brought back Oa?  Well, Kyle brought back the Guardians of the Universe (as babies).  He returned the power to the Central Power Battery.  I remember reading this and being like “Oh.  My.  .”  It was awesome to read this for the first time.

Not only did all of that happen, Judd Winick also continued the personal growth of the supporting characters that started with Ron Marz.  John Stewart and Jade both had serious growth in this book while it was on the stands.  Even the Spectre showed up from time to time.  That seemed so natural to include him as a partial member of the cast.  The only thing I didn’t like about this story was a dancing scene that was included after John Stewart could walk again.  It was so bad.  Next!

As a child, my dad had comics of his own.  He remembers reading Fantastic Four #1, Amazing Spider-Man #1, The Incredible Hulk, and the Legion of Super-Heroes.  Unfortunately, his entire collection was lost in a fire while he was at camp.  That was the end of my father and comic books...Until 1992.

In 1992, my family and I were on our way to a flea market.  While driving, the news of Superman's death came across on the radio.

I was shocked.
