When we return from the Holidays, we’ll be only 4 months away from Pittsburgh Comicon 2011 so you can expect to hear from me more frequently with more exciting convention news.
Lastly, before I go, I want to send out congratulations to Friend of the Comicon and 2011 Con Guest, MIKE GRELL on recently being name EDITOR AND CHIEF OF ARDDEN ENTERTAINMENT. I know fans will be excited to talk to you about your publishing plans for Flash Gordon, and the upcoming Atlas Comics revivals Grim Ghost and Phoenix. Best of Luck in your new position, Iron Mike!!
Have a safe and happy holiday and I look forward to talking to you all in the new year!!
