Once A Thief...






Since the Top 10 Listing, I was blown away by an inexplicable moment of chance concerning this site. Example: I collared a guy on a petty larceny charge, and while we were going through paperwork, he happened to see one of my business cards... After a few minutes of silence, he finally spoke: " Have you ever heard of a site called PLANET GRIFFIN?" ( Keep in mind, he had no idea the card and myself were one and the same. ) I told him I did, to which he commented that the site was 'crazy' and that he thought the 'movie reviews' were 'pretty cool'... The only reason he brought it up was because he had seen the card design on this site.

I must admit, that was one the coolest, as well as most ironic, moments to happen this summer--- and it's only just beginning! I got such a kick out of that moment, I HAD to put it up for you! So, to the young man getting ready to for his first offender's program, I say thank you for recognizing PLANET GRIFFIN... And please don't commit the crime again.

HA!
that's how it is in the indy comics world... i actually was in Jail sitting out a warrant (don't ask), and one of the other inmates goes "say, i think i saw you in the paper... were you in the paper?"

as it turned out, me and my friends had been in several of the local papers because of our Indy publishing exploits, and he recognized me from the pictures that ran with the articles...

so me and dude sat there and geeked out about comics all night.
same as it ever was...

RodB, you are already internet famous!

Some damn hot cards if they get recognized "in person" from the net. *wink*
