    I knew Alan a few decades ago when I confessed to him that I may have been responsible for British Marvel. I wrote to Marvel Comics telling them that some English comics in Britain were selling a million a week while Marvel titles in America considered 100,000 a month good. I hoped they would pull their socks up but instead shortly afterwards, out came the British reprints of American comics. I hope Alan is doing well.
