From Flickr: "Greetings From Virginia City, Nevada" by Jordan Smith (The Pie Shops)

Virginia City, the most historic and romantic mining camp in the world, is situated at the base of Mt. Davidson (Sun Mountain). Among the first miners to come into this area were Grosch Brothers, Allen and Hosea, who were the first to recognize silver in this area in 1859; James Finney, called "Old Virginny," for whom the city was named, Henry Comstock, whose name was given to the entire Lode; Sandy Bowers, Peter O’Reilley, and Patrick McLaughlin. 72 more words

Inked by Chic Stone (The Master!)

Lettered by Art Simek (The Letterer!)

Review- A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

I love Clint Eastwood. He epitomizes badassery in a way no one has ever been able to surpass. Not Bruce Lee, not even Chuck Norris. From his signature squint to his growl of a voice, Clint would be recognized as an icon of cool wherever he went. 653 more words

Land of the Midnight Sun Part 1

I am a survivor of the 1964 Alaskan earthquake. A publisher has spoken for the first printing rights to that specific story. The following tale is but a scribble still coming into composition.
