40th Street Black is Tom Spurgeon, former QVC employee and failed Protestant minister. As a critic and editor, he was once a very small fish in the rapidly leaking inflatable kiddie pool that is American comic books. He lives in Seattle, the city of cloudy skies, camera-friendly street riots, and readily available contract labor. The day Mr. Spurgeon's past catches up with him will be one really boring day.
