Just because I wanted to, a few pages from one of my favorite bittersweet stories ever. This one gets me choked up no matter how many times I read it.

Michael Tenicek is being plagued by dreams of a woman that he knows everything about, yet has never seen in person. As the dreams take over more of his thoughts, he loses focus on work or dating, and wonders if he's going mad after he's chased down every lead from his past he can think of and has come up with nothing.

Debating possibly overdosing on his sleep medication, he is visited by The Hanged Man, who reveals to him an attempt by the Timekeeper to take control of the very fabric of time and the fallout that happened as a result of both that and the attempts to repair the damage.

Fantastic story.

Considering that Kurt Busiek allowed this story to be posted for free on Wildstorm's website (before an overhaul got rid of most of their online comics), he probably wouldn't mind if more than one-third were posted too. Just sayin'...

Just a quick comment, nothing official. Back when scans_daily 1.0 was shutting down, Kurt Busiek participated on a thread on CBR about scans_daily, we got talking about whether or not "The Nearness of You" had been published in its entirety before. I was under the impression that at some point (before the 1/3 rule) it had gotten posted in its entirety. There was a minor argument about it, then Kurt responded:


So, like he says, if it was up to him it would still be online in its entirety. But he must not have full control over it, since it's not.

Not a mod, but...

All we know is that Wildstorm took it down. There may have been a request to remove it.

wowio.com had Alan Moore's Supreme "The Story of the Year" up for quite a while. Since it's been pulled, I don't imagine the want it republished everywhere...
