This personal commission was a top-secret Christmas gift from the buyer, Adam Alamo, pictured in the Jughead hat above, to his dear wife, Shannon, pictured in the really cool Star Blazers shirt!
I’ve mentioned before that Adam has been a huge fan of Archie Comics and even runs the very successful and fun Fans Of Archie Comics Facebook Page! He was also a huge champion for Die Kitty Die and helped us spread the word about our Kickstarter all over Facebook and Twitter. He even started a Fans of Astrocomix Facebook page! I have no doubt that Kitty would not have done as well as she did without Adam.
God bless Shannon! She’s the sort of wife every comic book fan should have… VERY patient, tolerant, and willing to go and hang out at comic conventions. One evening during dinner with the Alamos, it came out that both Shannon and I are mutual fans of the old anime cartoon, Star Blazers. The rest of the evening turned into talk about the Argo, Gamilons, the Wave Motion Gun, and the Comet Empire. Poor Adam, who wasn’t a Star Blazers fan, didn’t know what we were talking about. Cool husband that he is though, he still commissioned the above piece and requested that Mrs. A be wearing a Star Blazers themed shirt! I was certainly happy to oblige!
Thanks for everything, Alamos! We’ll see you guys very soon! Please check out Adam’s Facebook pages below!
