Comic Book Quote of the Month:
Merryman : " Welcome to limbo! You know, I didn't think you'd be back here quite so soon."
Animal Man : " Back? What do you mean, "back"? I haven't been here before."
Merryman : " Of course you have! You just don't remember! No one remembers limbo once they've left it."
Animal Man : " What is this place?"
Merryman : "I just told you: It's limbo. Comic book limbo .... See, this is where all the old characters end up. The ones nobody cares about anymore. You know, the dumb ones and the old fashioned ones. "
