I was introduced to it by my brother-in-law around 1989 when I would have been 26. I hadn't looked at a comic book in 15 years! The only other thing I got into was other titles by NOW Comics that published Snart, and Groo the Wanderer, hearing it was also "cool". But I only thought it was "OK".
So in 1998, I had to learn a little HTML for a college project (It took me 13 years of night school to go from my after high school associates degree to a Bachelors). I decided I was going to put this new found knowledge to use to make a fan website. It was between the band The Psychedelic Furs or Ralph Snart! Many fans from all over the world contacted me, and after about a year, the writer/artist himself.
Much of my legwork from 1998-2003 or so can still be seen on the fan site
run by the writer/artist. I gave him all my files when my stupid website provider went out of business, and I didn't feel like moving it. He had just brought Snart back as a web only comic at the time.
