Gentlemen... gentlemen... let's settle down here...

No, there is no "news" that will come out of the WBC, not from me at least.

I posted this here as you are all huge fans of Mr. Hamblen, and with his first public appearance in years happening this week, I thought you would like to know.

[And it was a little advertising for the fact that I will have Mr. Hamblen's other great design, Merchant of Venus, for sale at the WBC.]

Sorry... no "news" yet. If/when I have news, you'll get the FIRST post...

Thanks,

Yeah, Stephen, we might be just a little.... enthusiastic on this topic!

At least you know there's a certain corps of interest out there.

Stephen you should know by now that when you say anything here, even something like 'lollipop lollipop gumshoes and fiddlesticks' we would get hopeful it somehow meant a Magic Realm reprint was nearing. laugh

Thats because 'lollipop lollipop gumshoes and fiddlesticks' is obviously code from the Illuminati which unscrambled spells out:

"Pop sickle holes and modest pull fill hog polls. Dios."

Which is coded messaging to the Pilgrim suggesting the next day's move. Of course.

What do you think we are in this forum, a bunch of crazed fanboys waiting on word for something for years and years and...

Oh.

Let's keep reading between the lines! Emphasis above is mine, but why use the word "yet" unless there WOULD be news at some point in the future?

Exactly! And why use the word "if", only to immediately alter its meaning by adding the word "when".

Safe to say this is pretty much a definite confirmation that there will be news.

Despite your hope, there is not even any inherent symbolism; gravity is simply a coincidence.
