Thread Name: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Yeah, even me. :-)
FWIW, I'll never knock personal experience, and thanks to Muttley and others for that. I didn't say that on the last incarnation, which was not very generous of me (albeit with a little provocation).
Out of curiosity, I did another Google search just now and came up with http://jackkirbycomics.blogspot.com/2005/03/black-magic-dc-2.html. So the origin of the rumours might be a 1953 Jack Kirby horror comic book, perhaps?
(PS. "Credo". If something doesn't seem right to me, I *will* often do a quick check on facts. That's not an insult, that's how people should respond if they're unsure whether they're being sold a line. If it comes out true, then great - I've learnt something new. But if it turns out not to be the case, please don't hold it against me if I produce the evidence against it. And even if I've got "evidence", you still might be right if I'm relying on a dodgy source, but it's worth checking which is the more factually reliable of your source and my source. It's not a one-way street - if I was repeating something which I honestly believed was true but actually wasn't, please do the same for me, otherwise again I'm not learning anything new.)
