Primedia 1997

For those of you who don't know, Les Barker is the creator of Johnny Canuck. During World War II, Johnny Canuck was Canada's version of Captain America. Les is a wonderful man, and whenever he and his wife make it to a convention, I know I'll enjoy myself. Their company is always appreciated and looked forward to!

Here's a photo of Les and myself before a panel on Comics of World War 2. I would have loved to see/hear a panel conversation between Les and Will Eisner!

Richard Biggs, aka Dr. Stephen Franklin on Babylon 5, was the International Guest of Honor at this year's Primedia. A real down-to-earth guy, he was a lot of fun to listen to, and always generous with his time.
