Trent's Poe Comic List
&
Keeper of Poe's Purloined Postcards!

The following comics data was compiled by comic fiend, sci-fi man, Capt. Punkster, and trekster Trent Rogers (no email address except for the occasional cybercafe). It just so happens Trent is my oldest friend whom I've known since the age of 9-years-old. The postcard of Poe that he purchased in an old bookstore for me in Detroit was the inspiration behind this website.  Current occupation: Comic store employee/owner.  This is the man to whom the movies Clerks, Mall Rats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma finally gave his life some meaning! lol!  He has been to Montreal and partied it up with me in the early days.  We were big fans of the band, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet.

This list is totally out of date.  Trent better leave his slacker ways and send an update soon!!!  hehe

Comics just aren't for kids - Trent Rogers  Trent Rogers - Captain Punk! Trent Rogers - crisis of comic proportions
 

Trent Rogers and "Magic"

Since it was his "Poe postcard" from Detroit which inspired the creation of this site,  why not send him a crazy postcard of your own to be displayed on the wall at his crazee comic store for the fun of it.  Please send via snail-mail to:
