Night Business | In the hands of Jim Lee
At the NYC Comic Con I handed out Night Business issues to several creators (Rob Liefeld!). One of which was Jim Lee. My friend Jevaun Howell took a photo of Jim looking at the Night Biz covers (that's me to the left with my chin). He was signing at the DC booth and I just happened by as he was leaving. Jim was the reason why I stopped reading B&W, anthropomorphic, indy, TMNT-rip-off comics back when I was a kid and started reading Marvel books. He had just started his run on Uncanny X-Men, the story with Psychloche getting captured by The Hand and getting turned into the next Elektra. He's done mighty well for himself since those days. Even though I don't really dig his work any more, he's a hero to me.
