    1. Margaret Kerry was the live action model for Tinkerbell… http://www.tinkerbelltalks.com/tink.htm

      1. Yes, in chrome. Came here just to post about that.  Do not like unexpected autoplays.

    2. Sorry! I use Chrome and it didn’t autoplay for me. I just removed the embed code. It had AUTOSTART=”false” in the embed code so I’m not sure why it was autoplaying!

    3. In one of your recent podcast you were discussing a Galactus story from the old Marvel adult mag Epic Illustrated…this would be “Silver Surfer: Parable” by Stan Lee and the great recently deceased French artist Jean Henri Giraud under the pseudonym Moebius.
