I agree with Chip! It’s great to “see” you guys back on-line! Newsarama is not the same without you, it’s ok, but I just went thru a weeks worth of recent feeds in about a half hour! This rarely happened when you guys were there! Special thanks to Joe Palmer from GLA for letting us know where to find you guys again! WOO-HOO!

Chip and Ronn, thanks for the support–both of this post and the blog as a whole.

My role at Robot 6 will mainly be the Talking Comics with Tim email interviews, but if there’s enough positive feedback for 6’s Index, I would be open to doing it on a monthly basis.
