I have been a fan of Sergio Aragones since I was a kid. First Mad magazine, then Groo and then when I met him in 1995 I was in awe of what an amazing person he was. Sergio is larger than life. He is a real sage of the comics field but also of life. Sergio has been one of the biggest inspiration
in my life and help shape me into the person I am today. Without advice years ago, I am not sure I would have never been brave enough to take on a project as enormous as this one.
It was a pleasure to introduce Richard to Sergio at Baltimorecon in 2010. Thank you Sergio!
