VENUSIAN on the front page of the York Daily Record!


"Venusian saves York again!" screams the front page headline of the Thursday, April 27, 2006 York Daily Record. Then: "Actually,he might be the next reality Sc-Fi Channel star." That's right! Our very own manager of the York Comix Connection, Josh Strouse, is entered as a contestant for the upcoming TV show "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?"!
From the article:
"According to the show's Web site, the program will feature 11 finalists as they live together in character in a "secret lair" and showcase not only their powers, but also their compassion, integrity and resourcefulness through various challenges. At the end of the six-episode series, the triumphant hero(ine) will not only be featured in a Sci-Fi Channel original movie, but also have a comic book created around their character. The show is set to air later this year."
How cool is that? Read the online article HERE. Come and meet The Venusian at the Comix Connection - York on Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 6th. Let's all give Josh our best wishes and hope he makes it all the way to the top! And then you can say "I knew him when."

So THAT'S who the Venusian is!

Did sitting under flourescent lights at the comic store turn his skin blue or is that hue natural for those Venusian born?
