A whole new World

A whole new World

[jimlee]

Wow...wore the dark socks to the Sin City premiere and man, what a difference that made. Everyone was giving me a completely different look, I got a raise from Dan Didio and I even got a very interesting voicemail from some O'Brien guy telling me how f-ing hot I was.

Weird night.

And I forgot to mention a ton of other people at the event--even people I spoke to at length (thankfully social maven Heidi MacDonald of the Beat has a sharper memory). Creators jetting in from England like Dave 'the Originals' Gibbons, Wizard ueber editor Brian Cunningham, DC con maestro Fletcher Chu-Fong, artist x-tradinaire John Cassaday and mutant master Chris Claremont. Also there was Image partner Erik Larsen and power attorney Harris Miller III.

Again as electic a gathering as one could imagine. Frank referred to us all as 'tribe' and I think that accurately summed it all up.

I think its wierd that people noticed your socks...I mean I would expect your pants to be covering your ankles....unless you were showing them off haha. Its like jet-lag...except....not. Hell I dunno. hmmmm wonder is this going to spread out into some wierd fad for Jim Lee fanatics...oddly enough I can imagine some interesting as well as some creepy stuff in my head..but Ill leave it up there so that no one gets upset hah. Ill just pay more attention at Bigg Apple Con thats all.Well take care Jim

Wow, it's like Queer Eye for the Comic Guy, no white socks!
That Sin City premiere sounded awesome.

The premiere sounded like a blast...and JIM LEE talking to CASSADAY...um, can you say "SWOON"???

Don't let masses dictate which socks you're gonna wear. Fight these sock nazis and the black-and-white world they live in...

BTW, argyles might look good for special occasions.

A very interesting group indeed...and I'll be able to meet one of those living legends in a few weeks.

Although I have only been collecting for maybe 15 years, I consider you Mr. Lee to be the artist of my generation...but there are always those who have come before you, and then there are also the icons of the industry...so I guess I will bow down before a legend like Jerry Robinson when he comes to Toronto for the Paradise show at the end of the month, as I did last year when the late Will Eisner had also come.

With regards to the fashion statement, I guess I'm in the minority in thinking that white socks wouldn't have been so bad, given the white in your shoes already...but that's just me.

I don't know, Jim... We're going to summer, so it'll become *without socks* at all, for the young beach guys like you.

Oh, and what Cammo said was true.
Now, with black socks like us, you're really hot :!

Hooray!

I don't know what is wrong in black socks. I wear white usually, but what's a different? I've got advice for you, Jim: LET'S WEAR LONGER TROUSERS YESYESYO!
