I dig the scriptbook too. It is very educational as far as what goes
into making a book and all the considerations that a writer and artist
put into the work.
And a great introduction and commentary

Just go to a comic book convention. You'll see creators of all shades
and shapes :)
The artist I've collaborated the most with, Rick Mays, (Scarab, Masks of the Noh, Ultimate Marvel Team Up, etc.) is black.
He just finished doing the interiors of the new Iron Fist for Marvel.
He's been doing the covers for them. And he's doing a new Marvel project
right now with Adam Warren.
It is kind of interesting how this medium gives you a sort of invisible
celebrity. You can be a fan of peoples work and have no idea what they
look like, what race, or shape or vibe. It's always interesting to meet
creators at cons and see what they look like or what their pesonal demeanor
is compared to what vibe you get from them thru their work.

That's cool. I've always dug his stuff too. I ran into him in Holland
once, and spoke with him briefly there.
And once on the phone too.
Bendis introduced me to his stuff about nine years ago. How was the talk he gave?
Re: How old where you when you stopped trick or treating?

I think 1998 was the first year I didn't go.
That was because I was in Hong Kong that year. And they didn't seem
to care about Halloween in Hong Kong.
I used to go with my brother and a friend. My friend would play his
guitar as we walked around and as we approached the porch he'd do a diddy,
and my brother and I'd do a little clown dance (we were all three dressed
as some kind of clowns).
People seemed to really get a kick out of it and give us some great
If someone asked me if I was too old, or how old I was, I'd say I was
13 but I had a gland problem.
Or we'd say we just started puberty and hit our growth spurt. Once I
said I had a thyroid condition.
One time some kid trick or treating next to us on a porch made the mistake
of sneering at my brother's homemade costume, and asked "what are you supposed
to be?" My brother said "I'm supposed to be your biological father".

Re: Comic book creators on Ebay?

My girlfriend, Anh Tran is my dealer.
You can get stuff from her on ebay or directly. Just e-mail her at and let her know of anything you are interested in.
