The first of a three part transcript of the "Remembering Alex Toth" panel at the San Diego Comic-con is now available. The panel featured close friends and family, David Armstrong (moderator), Irwin Hasen, Dana Palmer, Eric Toth, Mike Royer, Paul Power, Rubén Procopio, John Hitchcock and Tom de Rosier. It is filled with insight, humor, and touching moments. We all owe a huge dept of gratitude and thank you to Alex Toth's family and friends who took this time to share their thoughts, memories and love with us fans. For the transcript; thanks goes to Kirsten Rose who worked with her two finger typing style to meticulosity transcribe the panel. And also to Bobbie Thompson who made a last minute dash to buy the voice recorder. Watch for part 2.
