Look, its friday...after work, go to the local pub, have a drink and start a conversation with someone you don't know...or knock a few back with some good friends and take a cab home. Tell some stories, pick on a co-worker...buy a round and have a blast.
If you feel good, then take life by the horns and ride that sucker into the ground...like the girl below.
When I was working on Marvel Knights long ago with Joe Quesada, our editor in chief and boss was then E.I.C. Bob Harris. Bob was super fair to us, treated us like part of the family and made my few years there on the 13th floor easier. When I left M.K. I started trying my hands at more writing gigs and really wanted to create more creator owned books...I still hade the EVENT COMICS bug in my system. I worked here and there and one day got a call from Bob, who had moved on from E.I.C and into freelance editing for Wildstorm. Bob asked me if I had any original ideas and would I be willing to pitch them to him and Wildstorm. Well, after a few phone calls, some time working up some ideas with Justin, we hit Bob with a few and he took to what I also thought were the two best...21 DOWN and THE RESISTANCE. Bob went in, pitched and sold it to Wildstorm and we had a reAlly exciting year run on both of these titles...and I am happy to say these books still hold up years later. After those runs, we got to work up another event creator shared book called the TWILIGHT EXPERIMENT as well as try our hands at some lisense books like FRIDAY THE 13TH and PROTOTYPE. overall, looking back, a lot of fun books and a great time for all.
my thanks to Bob Harris for believing in us...for Jim Lee for believing in Bob and us and for the crew at wildstorm for letting us get a bit nutty under their guidence. As well a big thanks for all the wonderful talent that were along for the ride...the best of the best. Below is a cover gallery of some of those books. Enjoy.

Obvoiusly I am a big fan of Jordi's so I put together some examples of hex's best covers by the man himself. Which one is your favorite? Props as well to Rob Schwager on color. My favorite is the "Hex in New York" cover. So much so, I bought the original from him.
