Golden Apple Signing way back in the day...

[jimlee]

Did a signing at the old Melrose Golden Apple location back in '92 when the first issue of Wildcats came out through Image. Over 2000 people showed up that day...some funny shots of the old Image crew throughout...and yeah, I should have put some more $ into my wardrobe :p

Haha, that was great! I was 8 years old that year.

Jim you and rob wore your hats the same way, kind of pointed skyward.

Rob reminded me of Dennis the menace!

Thanks for posting

I love the dude in line with Oakley Razor Blade sunglasses, the Metallica t-shirt and the ripped-up, acid wash jeans. That represents that year really well.

Jim 'n Rob looks like kids :)

When Golden Apple moved and was clearing out space, they still had copies of Wildcats signed by you that day. I bought them all. Haha.
Hopefully you'll do a signing in the new location!

I thought it was funny "sign of the times" when the one kid talked about being able to pay for his college costs after he got the book, with the autograph.

Starting with Todd's new (adjectiveless) Spidey book -- for a while it seemed like every new book had the potential to be a collector's future goldmine.

Kind of a bummer that fad ended.
