I can't help but feel that I've let you down this week. The brevity of yesterday's column haunts me like a hitch-hiker who died a year ago from the day that you picked her up. For many of you, I know, the weekly Hoopla! column is more than just a source of comic-book reviews; it's a sacred pact. It's a promise from me, Paul Weissburg, to you, the readers.
And yesterday, by posting such a short column, I betrayed your trust. I broke the promise.
And so it is that I present you with the following. Originally, I was going to save it for a special occasion, like perhaps your birthday. But I think the time is right.
So, please sit back, relax, and enjoy.
See you next week...
