They had Russian bots even back then?

I don't know about that

I wasn't a dumb kid, but there were sometimes things that just never occurred to me to do. Writing letters to the comic books was one of them. I had no desire to see my name in the book or have a question answered.

Probably related to my lack of interests in autographs. I have literally never had the desire to chase down a celebrity and get them to sign something. I have Star Trek DVD set signed by Connor Trinnear, but that's because the autographs were part of the convention package (which is another thing, I've only ever been to like 2 conventions, and the second one I got in via press pass from a friend because I did a panel with them.)

Re: The Letters Pages

I wrote to G.I. Joe in the mid-80's, copying the style of published novelty letter, and was confounded when it wasn't published.

I had better luck in the late 90's when I had 3 letters published in Detective Comics and a couple of Star Wars titles, I think, in the span of just a few months.

Oh, wow. I thought my only letter attempts were the above, but now I remember that I made several attempts to win a No-Prize. Never was successful.
