  1. How wonderful to hear my predecessors as Listener of the Year again. As a Brit I should have greater familiarity with Sherlock Holmes but never got around to the books. I have seen an old Hound of the Baskervilles, that was fun. And I have a bunch of DVDs I should open. Oh, and the TV series with Benedict Cumberbatch has incidental pleasures but, like Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who, too frequently disappears up its own smugness.

    All of which made hearing about this not-quite-comic all the more interesting. It doesn’t sound like my cup of tea, although I’m a big fan of the Dan Day art I’ve seen. Did you ever see the Master of Kung Fu Bleeding Black special he produced in the style of his late brother Gene, who had drawn the original MoKF book?

    I think I’d get the most out of this issue by using it as a colouring book.

    Steve and I love telly mysteries too - we try to find a Hallmark mystery for early Sunday evenings! Chronicle Mysteries, Wedding Planner Mysteries, Ruby Herring, Hailey Dean, Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries. Aurora Teagarden is our fave, although the Flower Shop Mysteries have the best titles - Snipped in the Bud, Dearly Depotted... marvellous stuff, with Brooke Shields to boot.

    I’ve not heard of Encyclopaedia Brown, but looking him up, he sounds a decent chap. Wonder if he knows Genius Jones.

    I looked up Lancelot Link too. I would have hated that show, we had a long-running UK kids’ programme, Animal Magic, that had segments with an otherwise harmless chap named Johnny Morris giving ‘amusing’ voices to zoo animals. Such cutesy horror.

    1. As a kid, I would never have described Lancelot Link as "cutesy horror," but ... yes.

      I didn't make the Dan Day / Gene Day connection. Thank you.

  2. My apologies, I misremembered - Dan Day inked that book, another brother, David Day, pencilled. It’s quite the tribute, regardless.
