    It's nice to see nice people have nice things happen to them. Congratulations, Mike and Jack!

    Pay attention, Mr. Olney. This is the perfect example of how Karma rewards the good as well as punishes the bad.

    Image Comics' Lions, Tigers, and Bears, by Mike Bullock and Jack Lawrence, won the Angouleme Discovery Prize for readers from 7-8 at the Angouleme International Comics Festival in January. The Angouleme show is one of the largest comic conventions in the world.



    The Image trade paperback edition was released in the U.S. in September; the book was originally published by Alias.



    U.S. retailers have noted Lions, Tigers, and Bears as a great way to reach out to younger retailers.


    Congratulations, Mr.Bullock and Mr. Lawrence!

    A press release announcing "Blake Petits' Evertime". So I believe that is probably enough for you to tell him to go back to hell where he belongs, and it's YOUR book.

    Anyway, glad to see you all come together to nail this peice of flotsam on the sea of humanity.

    and at this rate I should be up to date in a day or two.

    P.S.- by the way Ronee, they call you "Ron" in that article. so I guess you're in good company with "Gail" ;)
    Awesome! We need spoiler warnings now! :D

    Thanks, Flamebird.

So if you've been having problems getting leg exercise in because of hip issues, that might be a solution, even if it looks rather silly. XD
    There's no such thing as a comfortable position for me right now. But at some point, I hope to start physical therapy.

    I was born with a club foot. Had many operations on it when I was a baby, one when I was like 6-7. It started going downhill about 6 years ago, so the series of events goes like this: about 5 years ago, they lengthened my heel chord. It helped for a bit, but the pain crept back. So 2 years back they fused bones in the ankle with big metal pins. Last year, pain really hadn't improved, and they discovered some bone spurs, so I had an operation for that. But it didn't really make it better, so they tried me on some physical therapy, which, unfortunately, really only made it worse still. So, Tuesday, I learned that I'm going to have another operation. They want to remove the pins they previously said would always be in there, and do a basic roto-rooting of the remaining joints.

    I'm still hoping to make it to GEM in Dallas, Ohio and SPACE in columbus, this April.

    ANYWAY! I started a thread about that cross-group CALENDAR project I'd mentioned previously, if anyone here is interested...

    Thats one of my press releases actually. and they call me Ron because a lot of times when people cut and paste my name the comp won't read it and instead of deciphering the problem they just took out the two E's. Oh well.

    That sucks. Good luck with the surgery. I already bowed out of NYCC and gave my ticket to my partner in crime, Glenn Walker of ComicWidows.com. I'm hoping to get to WizardWorld Philly if it's a good show.

    Have you ever had the joy of riding one of those carts around Walmart or the grocery store?

    They really didn't offer much hope on the surgery. Basically, they said this is the only thing they can think of to do, and they don't normally remove pins like this...but since it's like a CORE pain, not a surface thing, and the MRI didn't show anything, this is all they can do. After this, if it stays weak and painful to walk on, it'll be me with a cane to get from point a to b as needed...

    Cane's aren't all bad. Yoda had a cane after all, and look how awesome he was! and...

    You know, it's sad. Other than the highlander bloke (leader of the watchers in the the series) I can't think of a single pop culture reference other than yoda for the man with a cane. I know it's a part of our 'Distinguished old gentleman' archetype.. my memory must be failing.

    What are the post numbers? People can change the amount of posts per page so the page numbers can be different.
