Out of the blue, the other week, I got an email from David C Collins, the new President and CFO of the legendary newspaper Weekly World News, thanking me for my write-ups of their stories that I used to run (such as here, here, and here).
He explained that while the publication had been in "hibernation" for a few years, he was now part of a campaign to bring it back to life, starting with their snazzy website, Weeklyworldnews.com and shop.
Among the items for sale at the shop is a Greatest Covers compilation of over 40 years-worth of front pages from WWN.
David and I exchanged a few emails, and he offered to send me some WWN mementos, even though I pointed out I was all the way across The Pond.
This morning, the above envelope dropped onto our doormat and I carefully opened it up to find a handwritten note from David and this collection of half-a-dozen WWN bumper stickers:
I also take this as another great cosmic sign, along with the rekindling of my desire to work on my Knight City superhero RPG setting (in which the Weekly World News played an integral part) that I'm heading in the right direction.
Don't be surprised to see the return of WWN-related posts here on HeroPress now either.
