Yes Virginia, lightning does strike twice

So, back in the ‘80s I was something of a letterhack. I wrote a bunch of letters to numerous publications (both in, and outside of comics). Lately, not so much though. That recently changed when I had a letter published in Amazing Spider-Girl #20 (I mentioned that here).

Well, recently I had not one, but two (yes two) more letters published in Amazing Spider-Man #569 Well, the really cool part of this letter is that it nets me a personal reply from Spidey-Editor, Stephen Wacker.

Well, the up-shod of the whole event is that apparently I now have not only have to bring Wacker his coffee, but I apparently owe him lunch as well.

Ain’t life grand?

I remember seeing Neil mention this and wondering if I read that right.

I'm figuring this is a first, perhaps even historic. If not, it's still pretty funky!

That's awesome, Bob. TWO letters in a single comic? How often does that happen to anyone?

I believe that I’ve seen it once or twice in the past, but apparently it happened twice this issue, as the other two letters are also from the same guy (no, not me).
