Happy Birthday, John Workman!!

me, John Workman and his 2011 Harvey Award, and pal
Rick Duncan in Baltimore (Aug 2011)
In my comic book convention appearances over the years I have met several writers, artists, editors, and other creative types. I have also met some actors and actresses. Some I have actually struck up conversations with and (dare I say it?) "spent time with them."

The one creator I have spent the most time with is John Workman, 2011 Harvey Award winning letterer for THOR. I met him and his lovely wife Cathy at last year's Baltimore Comic-Con. We had dinner together the first night and breakfast the next two days. It was very, very pleasant and fun to hear about all sorts of "behind-the-scenes" comic-book stories.

So because today is John's birthday....HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN! Hope to see you again this year and break bread with you again, too!
