Can Steven Grant Be Cooler?

Very kind plug in this week's Permanent Damage column, at CBR. "Did a long phone interview with John Siuntres last week for his Word Balloon website. Not sure when it'll be up - it'll be a sound file, baby - but I'll let you know, and in the meantime you can check out interviews with Brian Azzarello and others that are already on the site." Makes my face red, admitting the day job was kicking my ass this week, so the 2 part Grant interview won't be posted till this weekend, likely Sunday. Working in sports, the NFL's first week and the wild card races were keeping us busy.
