All the people who died today in the mass shooting in Aberdeen, MD. WXZY was regularly updating, and last I'd heard the police managed to take the shooter into custody.

RIP Al Matthews: As Sgt. Apone, he fought to the end in Aliens
The actor and singer was a military vet himself when he played the cigar-chomping space leader.

Norm Breyfogle was an outstanding artist. I've often wondered why he didn't draw more comics.

He was a master craftsman, but never a superficially flashy mainstream guy. Wizard never pushed him, so he got replaced by other, more popular artists.
And then he had a stroke in 2014.

Wizard called the shots for a while, didn't it?

I still kind of miss them though I don't think I every technically subscribed. It was so cool back in the day to have a whole, regularly printed magazine talk about comics seriously.

I agree. I used to buy and collect Wizard Magazine every month from 1998 through to when it ended in 2011. I learned a lot about the comic book industry from them. Every month they had great covers drawn by different comic book artists who were popular at the time. I'm curious to know how they feel about the comic book industry currently.

A lot of the editorial staff works for DC these days. Which explains a lot when you flip through free magazines like DC Nation.
