The first York ComicCon and... STERANKO!

I ran across this photo recently while digging in my file cabinet:


That's legendary artist Jim Steranko in between those two fresh-faced lads with a dream...

Ha! I remember those days. Ned had hair.

Ha-HA! Rat-tail? DOUBLE Ha-HA!

Ned's wearing a WATCHMAN Rorschach T-shirt!

I'm wearing my red crushed-velour jacket with the black velvet lapel from when I was one of "The Pips"...

We've aged gracelessly.

Hmmm. Perhaps we need before and after shots...

Bill, is that a smoking jacket?

Wait. WHO had the rat-tail? Ned or Bill?

That's even worse than having a mullet! (Which is a hairstyle that technically never disappeared from our region even though it apparently became extinct everywhere else in America.)

No, guyfawkes, that is my (red crushed-velour with black velvet lapels) jacket. I also have an 8-inch cigarette holder (from when I smoked) and black-and-white wingtip shoes.

My smoking jacket is has a belt, and is much roomier.


Rat-tail?

Let's just say it wasn't me or STERANKO!

OH MAN. I always wanted black and white wingtips. So swanky.
