And is that really a stack of original art sitting on the corner there?

They should have let Dave letter his own placard.

Is that a young Sandeep on Dave's left? Whoever it is, that is one EPIC mullet!

Tony Dunlop - That's Tony the store owner. Got into a tight financial squeeze with the store,Ger and I loaned him several hundred dollars and he disappeared. There's a picture of me with his wife -- who was very pretty -- in an Ottawa hotel room. Me just talking and her in full-bore "OH COME ON,DAVE" body language. Apart from him costing me and Ger several hundred dollars and disappearing, they were very nice folks.

That's Conrad "Fawning Canuck" Felber directly behind Gerhard.

Yes, those are original CEREBUS pages, yours for $100 Canadian each. No takers. It was mid-80s recession time in Canada.

This was the only time I met Lynn Johnston of FOR BETTER OR WORSE. Her son was a huge CEREBUS fan so she brought him to the signing because they lived right there in Barrie (I believe).

er -- North Bay, I meant.

Maybe he had the mullet because he couldnt afford to get all of his hair cut?
