While closely watching the formation of Image Comics during the early 1990s, there was this dude who wasn't part of that founding group yet was there at the same time... Hank Kanalz. It was Hank who created the now iconic Image Comics logo and who wrote the very first Image comic in Youngblood #1!
Most people asked him to sign their program or whatever during the first ever AsiaPop Comicon in Manila. Me? I had my Youngblood #1 in hand for him to sign. Wish I had time to talk to him about those Image days as well as what he does for Vertigo. Nevertheless, it was a thrill meeting him.
