I’m going to have fun writing the best fan letters that I can, pushing myself and the letter pages format to see what is possible.  In addition to coded letters, I’ve also experimented with poetry, puzzles, constrained writing techniques, and other formats.  Robert Kirkman’s Super Dinosaur #6, for example, has what I believe is comics’ first word search puzzle fan letter (check it out!).  I recently submitted a 100 word fan letter to celebrate 100 issues of Mike Mignola’s B.P.R.D. that I hope will be published.  In Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #12, my “choose your own” fan letter was published, in which the editor could choose the fan feedback that he wanted.   


So much genius in so few words. I salute you sir.

Dig a little deeper - all is not as it seems.

I'm not crying, it's just a bit dusty here and...whaaaa.

No, not at all. As a man who has tried valliantly to propagate a culture of letter writing a new voice in the darkness has to be a great thing. Of course Lettersentertainyou is a more cerebral take than The Tharg Code's whimsy, but it is a broad church. Please keep writing bbgun and if you choose to lay down a challenge I would happily engage - precious little competition round these parts at the moment!
