Time for a little bit of a winter snooze…
Boy, 2019 has been a corker.
I can say without reservation that this has been one of the most rewarding years I’ve had running 13th Dimension since its inception in the fall of 2013.
From BATMAN ’66 WEEK to BATMAN WEEK to the TOP 13 BATMAN COUNTDOWN to the TOP 13 GEORGE PEREZ COUNTDOWN to THE GEORGE PEREZ INTERVIEWS to BATMAN ’89 WEEK to JOKER WEEK to THE BILL SIENKIEWICZ INTERVIEWS to TOYHEM! — not to mention all our regular features and interviews — this year has been an utter blast.
But now it’s time for a nap. Over the next week and a half or so, we’re taking things down a notch to recharge our batteries for 2020.
Now, we’re not shutting down completely for this respite. Stories will pop up here and there. Some new ones and maybe a couple of fun ones from the vaults. We’re playing it by ear.
And don’t worry: We’ll come out guns blazing early in January once we’ve had a chance to rest up. But now it’s time to stretch the legs, catch up on sleep, check out some movies and, yes, read some comics I’m way behind on.
I also want to take this moment to thank all the contributors and partners who’ve made 2019 such a success. Please don’t be upset if I leave out your name. I promise I appreciate everything that’s been done this year on behalf of 13th Dimension.
But a special thank you goes out to Scott Tipton, Anthony Durso, Chris Franklin, Rob Kelly, Anthony Desiato and John S. Drew — not to mention the guest columnists and comics creators who’ve been available for so many of our events, like Neal Adams, Steve Englehart, Dan Jurgens, George Perez, Bill Sienkiewicz, Paul Levitz, Alex Segura and so many more.
And of course, a tip of the cowl to our friends at DC, Marvel, TwoMorrows, David Hyde’s Superfan Promotions, Archie, AHOY Comics, IDW, Cliff Galbraith’s East Coast Comicon and Gemstone Publishing.
I also want to tell you how deeply, deeply, deeply, I appreciate the loyalty and support of the readers who show up here day in and day out. Thanks to each and every one of you.
Finally, and most importantly, I want to thank my wife, Wendy, and son, Sam, for their love and encouragement, especially when my obsessions get the better of me. Their eternal patience is the secret sauce that makes this entire thing work.
So, see you in 2020 — because you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. As I write this, we’ve got lots of things already in the planning stages.
And with that, I bid you a hearty ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
