  1. Through a supreme effort of will, I managed to stretch the actual reading of my copy out for four days. (Gotta savor it, after all.)

    Now I just thumb through it and think to myself how lovely the pictures are.

  2. Congratulations to you both! Well deserved, of course.

  3. You are welcome Diana. You and Hoang must celebrate your achievement well! A lot of hard work has paid off!

  4. Was there ever any doubt? We are loyal fans :)

  5. Honestly, it took me a while to warm up to the GN genre. But after hearing you speak last night in Pasadena, I understood the essence of the book as well as the genre. I can say now that I enjoy the entertainment these pages bring out.
    I toast (with my cup of coffee) to a well deserved #1!

  6. No, no Diana….. "Thank-you and Hoang so much". You deserve it!

  14. Yeah! We didn't doubt that it would anyway. Brilliant!

  15. Congrats! Just saw my friend's copy of The Exile and wanted to steal it. Morality won out, and I'm going to wait for my own to arrive.

  16. I finally got home and found my copy waiting. It's beautiful! I'm not a huge graphic novel fan, but I'm very much enjoying this.
