I have a confession . . . I play with dolls (or I used to, rather). When I was a little boy, I fell in love with Barbie and anything pretty with long hair. My parents would let me have Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Bionic woman dolls, but Barbie was for sissies and, therefore, not allowed. Fortunately, my mother gave me a younger sister who shared my obsession with dolls, and I got to play with all of her dolls (including Barbie, snap!) under the guise of sibling bonding. My childhood passion would turn into a lifelong love affair with the soulless, vapid totems of beauty. I try to limit my collection to Wonder Woman and anything "special" or rare. (If anyone has an extra limited edition Robert Tonner Zombie Boy doll laying around . . . )

Clifford Meth is a writer, editor, and champion of the rights of comic book creators. As if promoting his new book Comic Book Babylon (a dishy, behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of the comic book industry) wasn't enough to keep Cliff busy, he is also trying to resurrect a project created by late, great comic legend Dave Cockrum.
Cliff was kind enough to answer a few questions about Comic Book Babylon and Dave Cockrum's Futurians.
MILD, BUT GOOD-NATURED, SPOILERS AHEAD
Sam and Dean Winchester have a pretty tight schedule. Who of us would be able to juggle starting the apocalypse, dying, being resurrected, clawing hand and foot out of purgatory, and generally being the last line of defense between us and our worst nightmares? It would be enough to drive any of us to the drive-thru.
But, while pre-frozen foods in aluminum wrappers work on the fly, what Winchester would snub his favorite foods, homemade? Plus, we owe them. For a time, they took care of a thing we’d rather not get into just now.

DS9’s great strength has always been its sprawling cast. While the other entries in the franchise largely confined their drama to the command staff of a starship with the occasional reoccurring player, DS9 built a rogue’s gallery of guest stars, many of whom were among the show’s strongest characters. Of these, a single man stands atop all others and remains my favorite amongst any of the Trek shows. That man? Garak. Plain, simple Garak.
