Super nice guy.

One of my gems is a first printing set of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns mini-series picking them up when they were first released. In the early 90's when Dark Horse was putting on conventions, I went down for work and Frank Miller was there unofficially but wasn't signing, just was "there" at the show talking with creator friends of his and the publisher of Dark Horse asked me if I wanted to meet him. I had my four issues with me since Klaus Janson was there and I was having him sign them, so when I was introduced to Frank, he saw them in my hand and asked me if I wanted him to sign them and I know everyone knows the response. He never really signed much and I don't believe he does any conventions anymore, so having these is a nice addition. I have been fortunate to have met a large number of comic industry professionals, many of which I can still call my friend to this day.
Nicest professionals Ive met so far are Cameron Stewart, Francis Manapul, Ethan Van Schiver, and Tony Harris. For the most part most I have met are nice but there are a few stinkers out there.
