When Stan was here last, I 'limited' myself to bringing about 15
comics. I thought, there'll be a lot of people there, and I don't want to
hold the line up. So, when I got there, Stan kindly signed all the comics
I had and did a nice sketch for me. In return, I talked with him for a
while, thanked him, and bought a $40 peice of artwork. I turned around
and there was this guy with about 50 issues to sign. Since there was no
lineup at the time, Stan went ahead and signed them all. Same thing
happened last time I saw Sergio. I guess I'll never learn. . . (kinda' like
Groo, I guess)

What a nightmare.
