No, not what I'm going to do after a couple of margaritas this evening, but a new book coming from Dark Horse, written by my great friend Jan Strnad and illustrated by his great friend Richard Corben. Check the link for an interview with these two gents and then buy their book!

Do I recall the name Jan Strnad from an X-Men cartoon episode, perhaps from the 2nd season?

By the way, do you know anything about the name Mark Edward Edens -- he wrote many 1st season episodes and did the show's best work. I always wonder why cartoons never keep on staff the great writers that first bring them success or, at least, bring them back when things start to fail, which X-Men certainly did after Season 3.

I wish I'd seen this earlier, I saw Jan last night and would have asked him. But -- the trusty IMDB says "good eye", sir! Don't know Mr. Edens though, or the ins/outs of the X-Men show...

I didn't even know Jan Strand was a man! Good to know! It's like the time I found out X-Files director Kim Manners was a guy, too.

I really was relying on memory. Upon rewatching my X-Men DVDs for writers' names a few days ago, I realized he also wrote one of my favorite's of Season 3, part 1 of the Dark Phoenix saga. God, when that aired, that Dark Phoenix saga so touched on how I viewed love; it was perfect.

Just checked imdb. X-Men misspelled his name as "Strand" and not "Strnad". Apparently, he wrote another 2 cartoons perfect for my age: "Tailspin" and especially "Darkwing Duck", which -- along with "Garfield and Friends" -- was the funniest thing to me at the time (I didn't fully get "Seinfeld" the way my brothers did) and I'd actually set the VCR to record episodes if I was gonna miss them.
