Suddenly Everyone Is Celebrating Their Multi-Year Anniversaries At Various Publishing Houses

image* Peggy Burns, the associate publisher at Drawn and Quarterly and one of the more dynamic figures in all of comics publishing, has apparently celebrated her tenth year at the company. Congratulations to one of my favorite people. They are very lucky to have her.

* Kristy Valenti, a key player in the mighty Fantagraphics Books empire and another person I like very much, just celebrated her tenth year with that company. I remember meeting her like it was yesterday, sheesh.

There are other folks celebrating employment anniversaries but I am sworn to secrecy or at least decided circumspection. The great revolution of the next ten years in comics publishing is that we get people working throughout the industry end of things that are as devoted and as talented as the creative talent. With folks like those mentioned -- and not mentioned -- in this post, we're off to a fine start.
