This looks like an interesting group. I will see about the next meetup.
Thank you for the welcome. Look forward to meeting you and everyone else
(Sorry for the delay!) Thanks for the warm welcome, Gary! I'll be looking for intriguing events in the near future with CAPE. =D
Thank you for the welcome, Gary. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone soon! Out of curiosity, are there any recent graphic novels about which you have been excited?
Thanks for the greeting! Hope to make it to one of the group events. I will be at WonderCon, too.
Hay I prefer Becca, and I can't wait for the next 'worlds most disorganised' meet up (which actually wasn't bad at all)!
I did check them out.. I'm in love with Terry Dodson.. omg...his artwork! Adam's is impressive too, I like several of the images he had with Catwoman. Stephanie's is good too. Thanks for mentioning them!
Thank you! I'll go check out their work!
