San Diego, long ago

I found this (pre-digital) photo recently -- it's from the 1986 San Diego comicon (my second trip out there, if memory serves). I'm posing here with Stan Sakai, and I think the other gent is Jim Groat, creator of a nifty comic titled "Equine the Uncivilized" which featured an anthropomorphic horse barbarian. -- PL

  1. We were so young back then. Those T-shirts Jim and I are wearing were for an effort to encourage Marvel to return Jack Kirby's artwork. Hence, "God save the King."

    Thanks for posting this.

    Stan, you're welcome! I remember those shirts, and I remember wearing mine proudly. I think I still have it in a drawer somewhere. -- PL

  3. Hmmm, lets see....
    Turtles & Rabbits, & horses....oh my!! Haha! (sorry, bad joke there!)

    I would love to see a team up from all three of them! I think that would be pretty interesting!

    Unless, (besides Usagi & the TMNT), I have missed that team up?

  4. Oh! I wonder if "Red Shetland" will make a comeback now that they've made a movie of "Red Sonja"!!

    Somewhere in my closet I have an Alien Smurf by Mr. G. that I got at the art auction all those years ago.

    Sorry for the double post.

  8. -->> D, you can order it here **here from Jim himself or Mile High Comics .. but hurry before all the Democrats buy all the copies !!


    .. i'm so glad Dave signed mine at the "Tick" signing.

    Sadly i couldn't catch up with Groat .. i dunno if he was at San D this year.


    Dave Garcia also gave me an ashcan copy of his newest project featuring a zombie-cowboy story The Night Ranger .. i have to read it and tell him what i think.


    Pete .. Dave, Monica and your old friends still care about you.

    I hope someday you will get to see them again.
