I first started building the site in early 2011. I'd been working on it quite a while before I built much of anything, but kept it growing. Now, to provide a bit of a background, I am a high school teacher, and I have been teaching for about fifteen years. I have an uncanny ability - in nearly every place I go - to run into someone I know. It isn't usually just at the grocery store, either. I run into people six or seven states away. My daughter's friend is the daughter of a woman I worked a summer job with in college three states away - twenty years ago. I eat dinner at Disney World, and sit next to old friends. We had dinner last night twenty miles away, and we were three tables from great friends. We ended up going bowling in perhaps the country's oldest bowling alley. See what I mean? I have a penchant for coincidence. My wife suggested I blog about that. Perhaps when this thing is running itself. Anyhoo, I have a penchant for coincidence.
When I built the website originally, I didn't intend to look at this at all. Quite the contrary. But as I read, I started to see things that fell into place strangely. I built most of the site before I even considered reading any of the New Universe stuff. And the new Valiant line came later, too. BUT LOOK AT THE COVERS! SOLAR 1 (admittedly, not the first title in the New Universe), Star Brand 1, and X-O Manowar 1 (to a degree) all have that same 'fighting space' look on them. So, I wanted to put a space up to record these. If you know of strangeness - or see something I don't, let me know, and I will put them up here. Until then, enjoy.
