Everybody was kung fu fightin’ after our story on the martial-arts actioner Kill Bill and its slinky slayer (#731, Oct. 3). ”Forget about Bill. After I saw this week’s cover, it’s going to be Kill Dave,” declares David Post of Hartland, Vt. ”My God, you are a beautiful woman, Uma Thurman! With that said, my wife can now kill/torture/divorce me in whatever order she sees fit.” Comic-book fans proved the pen can be mightier than the sword, expressing thanks for Scott Brown’s feature on the return of The Sandman. ”Neil Gaiman’s an amazing talent who has been overlooked because of the mainstream media’s ignorance of the comic-book world,” says Guy W. West of Jersey City. ”Now that he’s hit the New York Times best-seller list, maybe Neil will get more acknowledgment.” Also deserving of attention? New Brit-soul import Joss Stone. ”Your article intrigued me enough to give her a listen,” attests Amy L. Watt of New Cumberland, W. Va. ”What an amazing talent!” And you heard it here first!

Your Kill Bill story was a great read, but there is something you left out about Quentin Tarantino – my all-time favorite flick, True Romance (1993), written by Tarantino and directed by Tony Scott. I’ve seen True Romance left out of other articles as well, and I can’t fathom the reason. It has one of the best ensemble casts, including Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer, Christian Slater, Chris Penn, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, etc. Why is this movie not given the credit it so deserves? LOUISE WILLIAMS firstname.lastname@example.org Yonkers
EW has a history of bringing quality artists to the attention of its readers. Thank you for doing the same with Neil Gaiman (”The Best Comic Book Ever Returns”)! I was one of those women given The Sandman by a male friend in an effort to prove comics are for grown-ups, and I’ve been hooked on Gaiman ever since. The Sandman is one of the best stories ever written, and that’s a major compliment coming from a bookworm English major like me! TANYA VEVERKA email@example.com Pittsburgh
Pez Who? Pez Me!
Don’t ever think Pez is on the outs (News & Notes). I don’t see many Circus Peanut conventions happening. Pez merchandising is at an all-time high. Come on, there’s Pez boxers, Pez lip balm, Pez juice boxes, just to name a few. Tell me the last time anyone ate more than three Circus Peanuts within a week without a gun to his or her head. Yuck!

Thanks for your continued support of Marcia Cross (Television). Marcia’s Kimberly was the main reason I watched Melrose Place. She was psycho, but you loved her for it. I am so excited that she is joining Everwood. Hopefully, they will realize what they have and keep her around. MICHAEL P. FAGONE Mpf555@aol.com West Roxbury, Mass.
