I'd love to know how Mitchell Crouch discovered the group.  I think
he may be the youngest writer we've had in quite a while...

It also appealed to people who were both interested in comics
AND technologically-savvy enough to get all of the jokes and
references to computers and the Internet.  That was always
going to be a fairly small subset...

I think Andrew has gone a long way toward addressing this problem
by updating the LNH Wiki.  But it's still pretty intimidating.  When
started writing for the LNH, I was able to get most of the background
information I needed by printing out the FAQ and roster.

It also helped that there were a few core titles at the time --
LNH, Jeff McCoskey's LNH Triple Play and Ken Schmidt's LNH
Comics Presents -- that came out fairly regularly and gave me a
good sense what the LNH was all about and whom the major
players were.

I knew there was a reason I should keep the speakers
on my computer turned on...
