|12 issues were completed by October 2004, so the one-year anniversary should've been in November and the commemoration issue at left may seem a little late in that regard (well, OK it is). Since it all started so late in 2003, I tend to think of these first 14 issues as FF's first "year", but the anniversaries will go by calendar years from here on.
I sincerely wish to thank departing editor Patty G. Henderson for doing such a splendid job on this first volume of Flash Fantastic, and best of luck on her developing book projects!
I also wish to welcome new editor-in-chief Art Brown to our little band of misfits and hope he finds this as challenging and rewarding as we all have.
Here's to a wonderful and prosperous 2005!
