Where With Great Power Began

It was on this date, Sept. 20th 2012, that I placed this ad for authors to contribute to a book.
"Ok here is something I have been thinking about and want to see if anyone is interested. If you are a comic book fan and a Christian this should appeal to you. I want to put out a book of short stories by various authors that follows the same issue of Amazing Fantasy #15 as it goes from person to person from the first day that it hits the newstands to the present. I will write the first two stories and each other Author would take a turn writing one or two stories till we get to the end, which I plan to write, unless someone else comes up with a good ending. The profits from the book will go to a Christian missionary who works for Campus Crusade for Christ named Kelley Will. Message me if you want to do this. No date as to when I will need the stories but I hope to have them all real soon to make the book before Christmas. But the date can change."
Well the date did change. I found out that Christmas of that year was too close to do all that had to be done for the book. But it became the book With Great Power and it is still raising money for charity today. Here is links to it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Joseph-Beth, and
Barnes and Noble in paperback and in Nook
Don't forget to look for our ad in Cemetery Plots #2. It's available now at all fine comic books shops.

New Town, New Comic Book

I’ve heard that most people say that it is their sense of smell that brings back memories to them. I can’t recall a time when smell did that for me. For me it has always been sight or hearing. Lately, I have been reading a lot of Marvel comics’ Essential series. Right now I’m reading Volume 7 of the Essential Spider-Man. The first story in this series is a reprint of #138. It was the very first comic book I bought when my family moved to the town where I still live. I recalled buying it at the local convenient store that was just a block and a half away from my new home. It was called Stop and Go. The store is still in that area and moved a half a block closer but I’m not in that house anymore. It’s also now called the Dairy Mart. I remember thinking how lucky I was to have a store that close sell comic books. You see, before we moved, the closest store that sold comics where I lived was at least a mile away. That lucky feeling didn’t last too long.   In less than 6 months they stopped selling comic books. A local drug store, that was about 5 blocks in the opposite direction and across the town’s main highway, was now my closest connection. It was still closer than a mile away, but it wasn’t like having them as your next door neighbor.   The good thing about the drug store is that I had to pass it on my way home from school. Sometimes I made a quick stop there to see what books were out.

It’s now rare to find any convenient stores or drug stores that sell comic books. Comic book specialty stores are now where most people have to find them.  If you are a comic book fan, and lucky enough to live a block away from your local comic book store, then cherish that feeling.

Alternate views of fairy tales seems to be the new thing in books and movies these days. Beauty’s Curse by C.S. Johnson is one of the latest in this genre. With Princess Aurora of Rhone, whom her friends call Rose, we find out what would happen if Sleeping Beauty would take it on herself to find a way to beat the curse that was to come upon her when she reached the age of 18.

The First Bobby Hart Solo Album

You may only know the hit songs he wrote and produced for groups like The Monkees, Jay and the Americans or Little Anthony and the Imperials. Maybe you know him as part of the songwriting and preforming duo of Boyce and Hart with hits like I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight or Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows. Now you can hear how good Bobby Hart was as a solo artist with rerelease of his solo album. Don't expect the pop sounds that he has become known for. This is blue eyed soul music at its best. Included is a great booklet of photos, a recap of Bobby Hart's history and an interview with Mr. Hart by founder of 7A Records Iain Lee. Go to this Amazon link to buy it today

America: The good result from a bad situation

     I believe that people are put into situations for a reason. God will put you into a bad situation so that something good will come out of it. Even the very foundation of the USA proves this. Columbus discovered America and for a few years countries came here to get resources that they could sell and use back in their country. Squanto, an Indian, was taken from his tribe to live as a slave in the home of one of those people. There he learned to speak English and earned favor and was sent back to America. But he had to live in another tribe as his was killed off by a disease that would have claimed him too, if he had not been taken away. In that tribe he taught others to speak English.

     Soon after that, the Pilgrims arrived to escape to religious freedom from England were the government was telling them how to worship God. They were not ready for the harsh winters and had little knowledge of farming. Many of them died. They were about to give up and return to England when one of Squanto's friends came upon them. The Pilgrims had settled down in the spot where Squanto's previous tribe had been. He introduced them to Squanto and his Chief. Through them they were taught how to survive the winters in what would later be called Massachusetts and how to farm.  From there the national holiday of Thanksgiving, thanking God for their survival in the new world, it's not really about the turkey, was created.

     From that the USA was born. A country that has fought for freedom ever since. We have fought to keep ours and to help others get their freedom. People ask us for help and can come to us to live free. In World War II we went to war to help other countries and the Jewish to live and to worship as they thought God would want them to. Jewish people came to live here to escape the death sentences that the Nazi's had for them in Germany.

     All this goodness to the world cameo about from a bad situation. When Squanto was kidnapped to be a slave. Because he came back speaking English, he unknowingly helped create the USA that has bought freedom to so much of the world and gave those that could find freedom in their own country a place to go. This may seem like a late Thanksgiving day message but it's really one we need to keep in mind everyday and to give thanks to God for creating the United States of America.
