  1. It’s hard to believe we are talking of Alex Ross’ career in terms of decades. To me, it seems he’s still the young new kid on the block. Tempus fugit.

  2. I wrote the Avengers piece, which was an honour as Sal has been my favourite artist since 1976. And conducted the interview with Nicieza. (That was an education.)
