04.Sep.2009 Thank you all!

Hey folks.

Last night, at a little before 8 p.m., I was let go from my job at Wizard Entertainment.

Since then, I have received an overwhelming amount of amazingly supportive, kind and flattering emails, Facebook messages and tweets from a ton of truly great people! Thank you all so much! I guess when the going gets tough, you really see how many wonderful people you’re surrounded with. I’m just grateful to be surrounded by so many.

Also, additional big thanks to Josh Wigler, Sean T. Collins, Mel Caylo, Kiel Phegley, all the fans over at the Wizard Universe Message Boards and the crew at Panels On Pages for voicing their support in the public forum, as well as privately.

TJ Dietsch—an extremely rad guy who was ToyFare‘s Associate Editor—was also laid off last night. Check out his blog at www.unitedmonkee.com and spread the love.

Again, thank you so much, everyone! The outpouring of support has been truly touching and has only helped my love grow for all my friends, colleagues and the comic industry as a whole. Thank you.

    Jim, I think you will agree with me when I say that this is all a blessing in disguise. I have no doubt that a new door will open up soon, one that makes you even happier and more fulfilled. And selfishly, I hope this brings you back to Chicago so we can hang out more!

    You are going to be fine. Besides, you still have a smokin’ hot girlfriend!

    You’re buddy, Kevin Timony
