On a personal note, Josh and I swim in some of the same circles within the comic book creator pond. I’m putting together a package of specially signed Hero Happy Hour issues signed by cover artists Scott Morse and Jim Mahfood to send off for the auction. Josh is good people and a great talent. He is, without a doubt, on my short-list of talents that I hope to work with. Just look at the examples below — and you can see more at joshmedors.com or by clicking on the images below.

Get well, Josh.
