Was it 2007 or 2008?

Nik was actually the reason I found out about these forums. He invited me over from eBay when a book I was selling was being discussed.

I think it was at that WW Chicago show that everyone really met everyone for the first time. It was like a 'coming of age' movie where we weren't just faceless avatars anymore and became real people for the first time.

Man, it's been a long time.

Nik is missed.

And thankfully greggy missed me (athough I would have caught you if I could have, buddy :wink:)

Roy...it was 2007, that’s when we all first really met at the Courtyard.  2008 was the first Greektown dinner.  When was the year Beyonder came to Chicago with us?  Was it 2009 Christopher?

Again, my memory fails me.:shy:

OK, my memory is not the greatest.

That was the one we all took the train from Rosemont for.

2008 was my first Chicago show, it seemed to me everyone knew each other pretty well at that show.

Most in that picture are board members...with the exception of the one young lady who sat next to Greggy. :shy:

She probably felt he was the least threatening of the bunch

I had a few pm with Nik and he was welcoming and I purchased a comic book in one of his sale threads.

As for (Edit) Richard Wad, it is enjoyable.

I remember when I read the news, I was house sitting on the north shore above New Orleans. My wife couldn’t understand why I was so morose. Still have my pin after many moves over the years.

did he tell her to suck it!

I didn't know Nik but the love for him is apparent in this thread and is a credit to you all!

Anyone wants to get together in Central NJ I am up for it!

Still have my Nike style Nik shirt in storage.  Who else got one?

I still have mine, he was a really good guy, what a loss. 

I miss him and Flatrock, both gone way too soon.
