And thus, the Comics Blogger Internet just got a little bit worse: David Campbell has called it quits and brought the incomparable Dave’s Long Box to a close.
Despite our rivalry–and the fact that this totally means that I won–I can assure you that I’m broken up about this. Dave’s a phenomenal writer and a constant inspiration, and while I know that he’s not quitting entirely (I mean, he’s still got his daily blog for his corporate paymasters at ABC, and I’m sure he’ll have another project before long), the thought that he’s not out there reading an issue of Avengers Unplugged or mapping out an Alpha Flight adventure is a sad thing indeed.
Thus, in a show of solidarity, I’m taking a Campbellesque few days off to
celebrate my victory mourn the loss of Dave and his yearly updates.
