    Its a great honor to be working with Joe on this. The Storefront Artist Project which was founded by Maggie Mailer (Norman's daughter) is a great organization. This is a wonderful way to showcase a great artist, organization and city.

      Well, you folks made MY day, I'll say that. I'm really looking forward to it.With the graphic novels exhibit still at the Norman Rockwell Museum (and soon to hit the road, I believe — Mark Wheatley and Marc Hempel's Breathtaker is among the featured few), Massachusetts sure has some enlightened museums!

    I am so happy for Joe. He is my favorite artist and one of the nicest people I have ever met. Mike likes to joke that I have practically turned our house into a Staton gallery. But when did he become Dick Tracy?

      Joe's a long-time Tray fan. He did some great promo art for the feature's 50th anniversary. After I saw that photo, I would have faked a story in order to put it up!

    Ah. Another former member of that great organisation, the SFPA (Southern Fandom PPress Association – what is known as an "APA' – imagine a newsgroup with a two-month latency…) gets the honours due him, following in the trail of William Gibson and Mark Verheiden…

    Joe's always been one of my favorites. One of the first pages of art I ever bought was from one of his '70's Justice Society stories. Loved those comics when I was a kid. I was lucky enough to work with Joe for many years, inking him on Scooby Doo.

    Good for Joe. I've always loved his E-Man stuff.

    Man – I would love to see that exhibit! But I can only afford one trip to MA a year. Hopefully Joe will hit the road – er – hopefully Joe's show will hit the road.
