For example, some claim that the term “hot” refers to the vehicle being stolen. Other origin stories include replacing the engine’s camshaft or “rod” with a higher performance version.

The term has broadened to apply to other items that are modified for a particular purpose, such as “hot-rodded amplifier“. […]

A group of people of different religions, races and ethnicity served as the backdrop for the inscription “Do Unto Other As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.” Rockwell was a compassionate man, and this simple phrase reflected his philosophy.
“I’d been reading up on comparative religion. The thing is that all major […]

READ MORE ABOUT THE BREATHTAKER EXHIBITION

Marc Hempel and I first connected when he submitted some comics pages to my fanzine, NUCLEUS. I was in college, just a few years ahead of Marc. He was in his final year of high school. But his age did not show in those early pages. They were sophisticated work, professional in every way – from the storytelling and illustration, to the excellent quality photostats. There was no question that […]
