I want to take this opportunity to publically thank Philip Simon and Dark Horse.
Dark Horse takes some heat from REH fans for sure. Let's face it we can be a pretty cantankerous lot. But even if you don't always agree with the approaches they have taken, I think it can be safely said that over the last decade, DH has been pretty darn good to us Howard fans.
This summer at Howard Days, DH sent several boxes of comics, trades, and hardcovers to Project Pride for Howard Days. These were able to be sold in the gift shop at the Howard house with all the proceeds going to Project Pride.
In August, for Worldcon in San Antonio they sent several more boxes of books, comics, even posters printed especially for the event, that we were able to use for the REH exhibit. They also sent a case of Hour of the Dragon #1 that were able to use as a giveaway (with an REH Foundation bookmark inside). The material that was left all went back to Project Pride to give them more inventory for the museum.
They did this with no expection of thanks but I would like to thank them anyway. Philip, I don't know if you guys read this board, but if you do, please know that I and many other REH fans really appreciate your support. Thanks!
