The Robin death phone poll was not a blow out, but very close, less than a hundred votes difference. However, you're very right about the Robin who was killed. Readers hated Jason Todd.

I love your story, but you have touched my Sal Buscema nerve.

The best inker for Sal Buscema was Sal himself. Sal's a really interesting person; his TwoMorrows interview book was really good.

I worked at a comics shop in 1994, and...yup, that was what it was like. I hope it's better for modern comics workers.
