I almost forgot that it’s Ash Wednesday–the one day of the year when comic book fans pay tribute to Event Comic’s Ash! He was created by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, with publisher Laurie Bradach (wonder whatever became of those guys?). Ash, the first firefighter superhero, was bought and eaten by Dreamworks, and hasn’t been seen since. I miss him.
(Full disclosure: I was Marketing Director for Event Comics. Good times…)
