Superman/Batman #26 – Sam’s Story

Though I have yet to write about them here, I am a big comic book fan. I have been since I was a kid. In fact, I have an account at my local comic book store, The Comic Swap, which is a list of comics they set aside for me each month. The Comic Swap also sends out a weekly email newsletter, telling all us junkies what is new for the week. It was there I first learned about issue #26 of Superman/Batman.

In June of 2005, Sam Loeb, son of comic book writer Jeph Loeb, died of cancer three years after he was diagnosed with the disease. Issue #26 of the comic titled Superman/Batman was written by Sam Loeb and is also a tribute to this courageous young man. A discription of this issue can be found here: link. A description of the type of person Sam Loeb was can be found here: link. All of the fees and royalties will be donated to a special fund in honor of Sam Loeb.

The above story touches me as a writer and as a future parent. I will definitely be picking up a copy of this comic, and hope many other readers do as well.
