which I wrote over twenty years ago, just won the 2011 Pulp Ark Award for Best Pulp Comic!!!



My heartfelt thanks to all who voted for me and a warm congratulations to all the nominees and winners. This is such a special day for me.
Thanks all!!

Thanks Kevin and Jay, truly appreciate that. Hopefully with this award spotlight, more good people are going to want to pick up a copy at the cons we
are at. Rob and I will certainly order up another batch for the pulp shows, count on it. biggrin.gif

Thanks, Checkered Man, much appreciated. Rob Davis and are were so happy with this we thought it only right to help celebrate by creating a tee-shirt that is now on-sale at (www.IndyPlanet.com)



We think it looks pulp snazzy. Don't be surprise to see us in one at this year's cons. biggrin.gif
