So, hello to all and please bear with me as I take a moment to gain my bearings, and please forgive any errors as I am still processing and learning. I had intended to begin my first blogs to intro an exploration of the women of the comic universe, but alas, there is a sadness that begs me to speak on another topic for this first blog. The loss of a legend, Leonard Nimoy. Continue reading Live Long And Prosper
