First, it was great to see so many Great Lakes Chapter members at our “Super Splendor Sunday” event in Cleveland’s Market Garden Brewery and Distillery.  Ron Hill did a wonderful job of arranging this event and his son John, the assistant brew master, even provided tours after our two excellent speakers, Brad Ricca (author of Super Boys, about Superman’s creators) and Gary Dumm, illustrator for Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor comic books.  We also enjoyed meeting several new “chapter friends”, including members of Northern Ohio Illustrators (NOIS).  Ed Black, who had recommended Brad as a speaker months ago, brought maps to “Superman” attractions in the area.

We enjoyed meeting Victor Cimperman (Cleveland Public Library graphic designer), John Weber (Video Editor and Producer of The Punchline), and Gerry Shamray (former illustrator for Harvey Pekar, as was Gary Dumm) and it was great to see Chip Sansom (cartoonist of The Born Loser) again.

Bob and I were there, too, but on the other side of the camera. The group shot shows the Super Splendor Sunday treat bags while folks waited for lunch and beer (it was the start of Beer Week in Cleveland). Note Ed Black's Siegal and Shuster Society shirt. We also had door prizes and sat next to big windows that showed the brewing vats at the Market Garden Brewery.


Thanks to Ron Hill for planning and coordinating this visit.
Thanks for the photos - if you have some more, get them to me and I'll post them.

Really annoyed by the commentary on this page? - complain to Earl Musick because once again he wasn't there <g>!
(note he didn't have anything to do with it but as vice-chair, he should get all the complaints)
