I'd like to think that Robert Benevides took your essay with him when he departed for Santa Cruz--while many of us still revere and enjoy Burr's turn as Perry Mason, it's unquestionably the case that his "noir career" was more varied (despite his typecasting as a villain) and had more panache!
And it's joyous news indeed that new ownership is perpetuating Burr's legacy in the location that he clearly loved the most of all the places he lived in his very eventful life.
NC Annual #4 was both the best and the most copious edition of that series, and will always remain so. It wasn't quite like buying Xerox or Apple back in the day, but the editor got "paid" with an extra box of that edition, which has dwindled down over the years in a profitable way, if you get my drift. The remaining copies from that cache are probably sufficient to pay for somebody's funeral... :-)
