You know your ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Montaigne wouldn’t write for his own benefit—why, if he had, he would make himself look like a brilliant Tony Stark or Reed Richards-type.  I want you, the reader at home, to see me as transparently as the Invisible Girl, for that is The Mighty Montaigne Manner!  Heck, if it wouldn’t get us in trouble with the Comics Code Authority, I’d present myself as naked as The Silver Surfer!!

 So, True Believer, this book is about Michele the Man.  Face front!
Excelsior!
