Fun fact: [Voyager actress] Jeri Ryan dumped her husband to be with [Voyager producer Brannon] Braga, which led to the divorce filing that destroyed her husband's Illinois senate candidacy -- paving the way for Obama to become a senator, and then president. Thanks, Brannon Braga!

I haven't posted here in YEARS. But this was such a SuperFrankenstein moment, I had to share.
This is the most astounding thing I've come across on the internet in a long time.
Are you ready?
There are 117 copies of Bob Haney's Super-Sons trade paperback in the New York City library system.
Two in the Aguilar branch. Four in the Bronx Library Center. Two in Eastchester, two in Edenwald, two more in the appropriately-named Epiphany Branch. Three at 96th Street and two each at 115th and 125th. Riverside, Seward Park, and Spuyten Duyvil. Eight pages of listings in all, right up to Woodlawn Heights and Yorkville (one and two copies, respectively). But strangely, not a single one in the main, Mid-Manhattan Library.
How do I know this? Because I went looking for the first Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuinness Superman/Batman book as research for a project. And there isn't a single copy in the system.
Haney wins in the end!
