Letters to the Burnettwork Bullpen

Back in the day, it was as much fun to read the Marvel Comics Bullpen (letters to Marvel’s creators and Editor-In-Chief, Stan Lee) as it was to read the action and adventure happening in each issue. We’ve decided to pay homage to that tradition and share some of the great letters and comments we receive at The Burnettwork on a daily basis. Bullpen editor, Mike Bawden, provides intros (and occassionally comments) on letters provided by our fellow Imagination Connoisseurs.

(Please note: Not every letter will be published or read during a stream and many of the submissions will be edited for clarity and readability.)
