Quote of the Day

I really, really, really enjoyed moderating the anniversary Prince Valiant panel. R.C. Harvey, Gary Gianni, Mark Schultz and Thomas Yeates are all super-nice, articulate, talented comics-makers and they were pretty straight-forward and honest about the joys of doing that particular strip – THE comic strip, in a sense – and the frustrations of things like newspapers' falling fortunes and the physical space afforded Prince Valiant on the Sunday page.

The questions were pretty amazing from the audience at that panel, including a gentleman in charge of Hal Foster's library, who read out loud a dedication from Ray Bradbury to Foster – stupendous to hear that.

Gary Gianni is apparently doing the Game Of Thrones calendar for next year, which should be pretty great-looking.
