Synopsis:
Groth opens with this line: "It is a rare occasion when a Marvel editorial deity will descend from his throne long enough to deliver a lecture on journalistic practices, but that is exactly what happened at Marvel's November press conference." Groth adds that "Tom DeFalco's speech was not entirely solemn, though, mixed as it was with his characteristic wit and levity and punctuated by the erudite observations of Peter David and Ann Nocenti." Groth then presents "the complete transcript of those relevant moments," which transcript fills the bulk of the editorial and more than speaks for itself.

CARTER SCHOLZ explains in this thoughtful essay why bad books vex him. "What I have is a well-developed interest in the use of language as a tool for thought. ...
