Where is dear, sweet, adoreable John?
The quote is from one of Bruce's poems.
For me, it was Nancy Drew.
What really caught my kid imagination was the Dick Tracy video / phone / watch - a 2-way wrist radio - that came enclosed in boxes of Trix cereal. Even though the Trix watch was plastic & cardboard, the very idea thrilled me.
Didn't care one way or another about the comic.
Now, I've got one - even though it's a phone.
It still thrills.
