Hitting It Out of the Park

Hitting the Comies with a baseball bat. 'Hitting it out of the park' is a US sport metaphor for doing something spectacular and beyond expectations. Our Create constributors have been doing that for months now: responding to challenges with fascinating Stuff, such as Guide Entries, photos, stories, and personal anecdotes that astound us. Keep it up, folks. This month's challenge, Looking Back at the 20th Century, has already set everyone talking, thinking, and writing. Do your bit for the home team.

Speaking of challenges, a couple of weeks back, Willem the artist proved his multitalented approach by offering us a Writing Right Challenge The answers have been a lot of fun. There's a new one in this issue, and if you're up for it, the challenge is still open. Put on your thinking caps.

We've got art. We've got Higher Criticism from Awix, who waxes unenthusiastic about that Grace Kelly pic. (You're just lucky her dad isn't still around, Awix. He was a Philadelphia bricklayer.) Ben's got some industrial action going, and the Usual Suspects are back with fun and games.

And…of course, the hotly-anticipated Meet Report is here. Pastey will tell you all about the goings-on in Manchester. Maybe it will inspire you to book your airfare for the next one.

So, enjoy this issue. Read, leave comments, and plan your next contribution. Get ready to play ball, and have a wonderful week.
