      That's a GREAT idea .. I've got some great art by Dave as well .. he was one of the reasons why I have enjoyed coming to the Pittsburgh Comicon, really bummed now that I was unable to attend this year .. an extremely talented artist and a true gentleman, he is and will be sorely missed.

      Maybe we can do a homage to Dave for the news letter cover, or the back of Aprils program guide.

      I can provide art for that.
