did you send it to the snailmail address on Jinxworld.com? It didn't get to him last time I tried.

Yes.

He never mentioned to me about it. I figured he's just busy or didn't like them.

But then one day at a con, a guy came up to me and said that Bendis recommended it. I posted that story here and Bendis said, "cool news" I think.

I will always try to send Bendis my books. This board is a fun place and my only functional sales outlet (all money goes to charity).

also, I think 1-3% of mail get's lost. When I sold 300 items on ebay, 3 people complained that they never got their packages.

yeah, he said he didn't get it so i bet it was lost in the mail. also, expect your I2I #2 shortly with a sketch Mr. Nice People Productions. :razz:

Yes. He either never read it or chose not to comment on it. But he's a busy guy.

Yep sent him a batch, but haven't heard if he got them. This was about a month ago. So either he hates them, or the mailbeast shoved them up poochie's ass again.

Did you miss the post where he said he'd buy one from you?

I didn't because I'm a stalker.

i didn't miss it. i posted the website with paypal info, but nothing ever happened. and i'll send them to him for free anyway, but at least i know he's interested.

If i gave a book to Bendis i would rather he say he didn't like it then nothing at all. :-?

Best to get them to him at a con I think.

When I gave him QUANTUM, he told me, "Thank you, sir. I will sit on the toilet, and I will read this."

I took it as a compliment for a good 30 seconds. ;-)

BENDIS!

Now we know.

Brian's stack is AT LEAST a year high.

Good lookin' out, Bendis!

I don't think cons are the best places to give books to creators. Can you imagine how many books people must get each day? I still have books from a con 2 years ago that people gave me sitting in a pile that I haven't read.

That is a good point.

So what was the best address to send to?

BENDIS!

i do have an extremely large pile of ashcans and indys, many not even in english, and i will get to all of them. eventually.

if you gave me a book at a con, i took it home. i bring a bag to shows specifically for that.

use the po box.

That's very cool of you to follow up like that, BB.

Yes it is. He really doesn't have to do any of that considering how busy he must be with work or just trying to be himself. I really don't think many of us appreciate how accessible Bendis makes himself to the fans through this site. We should get him a card and have everyone sign it or something.

I just send him a one or two line description.

Recently I just sent him a scrap piece of paper saying

"GIRLS KISSING" :)

I've been on the boards since Sam and Twitch. Pre Tony even

I've given my books to Bendis at cons.

Never a word.

Yet somehow I go on.
