There were others there that unfortunately I did not get pictures with some fine folks like Joanne Mutch of Rummlestrips, Stan Yan of Squid Works, (sorry Stan, the pic didn't come out),Russ Maheras of Maelstrom and Saul of SSS Comics. I also want to thank BUZZ for sketching in my book and SonOfDoc (Steve's) I can't believe I didn't get a pic with him. I am also surprised and perplexed that I didn't have pics taken with my four main artists Nick, Ken Ray, Cantrele and Matt Feazell. You guys made that convention great!! iFo for life! See you all next year!
