    this place was so cool. it was a smaller more personal version of comic con. here's a few pics from the event and then the link to view all them. by the way, JF and DH, I really could have used you while speaking with the LAPD.

    this is mark sylvestri. he actually started Top Cow comics. many artists and comics come from his company. he is also a huge fan of mine. we've met before. he's done work for tomb raider and many other series but mainly witchblade.

    this is michael turner. he was the first artist I ever met. I met him 6 years ago while the tomb raider series was really going. I met him at tony's shop in manhattan beach. he's got cancer again which explains no hair. he's one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet and his work is awesome to say the least. he's regarded one of the best in the industry.

    Looks like you guys had a great time! Think I'm most jealous of you seeing the mailbox! I've got to do a road trip and get a picture or two!

    hey all...here's the link to the actual site. maybe next year we could all go. it's not that crowded and the cost is great too. look at the list of people there you can meet up close and personal.
