Sometimes, checking my email is a lot like Christmas morning.

That was definitely the case this morning when I got this little gem in the (e)mail from Moose Baumann, who was gracious enough to color Andy Smith's black and white art for the cover of the upcoming collected edition of ARMOR X.

It's pretty easy to see why Moose is one of the top color artists in the business today.

I'm not sure when the collected edition of Armor X is supposed to ship. I would assume it will be printed in time for either the San Diego or Chicago conventions. I've been redialoguing bits of it in my spare time so the collection will be along the lines of a remastered version. Hopefully, if it sells fairly well, Andy and I will finally get to do the next chapter.

Thanks, Moose!

Jeff Cromer Here. It's been a long time. I wanted to Thank You for signing the first issue of "Armor X" for me. I appreciate it very much. I tried collecting them all, however my comic shop ran out. I wrote wondering about George and some of the other "Kubies". Glad to see you made it, I look back then and wish I was more dedicated to the craft. I turned my head around and joined law enforcement. After eight years in, I'm now a Detective. Funny, I know. Yeah, "My Friend' who got the book from you,told me how you told him, How you and Sergio basically drew me out of Jail." That was just a really stupid incident. Yeesh! If you ever get a moment would like to chat briefly. Hope you and your family are well.
