Thanks to the Shanghai Restaurant, Don, Ed and everyone else at Ottawa's oldest Chinese restaurant for continuing to make us feel welcome. China Doll even sent us a great drawing this time 'round to help celebrate our special day!
Over the last three years, we have been blessed with artists and writers, watchers and the curious, reporters, students, journalists; all manner of folk who come together and make each Jam unique and unforgettable. The 3rd Anniversary was exceptional in that we had a visitor from as far as Georgia join us! Thanks for taking time from your trip and stopping by to share your talent!
To mark the special occasion, we usually have a draw (May 30th was no exception!) Andrew Stutt was the lucky winner of a very cool Marvel Wolverine bust! Everyone else who took the time to join us received a variety of comics from the Kanata Wizard's Tower's vault. The comics were an assortment of vintage Image comics, stuff from SLG, Kitchen Sink, DC, Marvel and First! We tried to find '1st edition' copies for the cool factor, and Jammers were presented with a bag from which they drew the mysterious bounty. The fan fave (which Westin, Clayton and I have been chuckling over for a week) was the DC gem HITMAN #5 "Enter Nightfist... He Will Hit You With His Fist!"
Clayton Jacobs draws the Jammers' names from the 'special hat' provided for the occasion.
The Happy Winner shows his prize!
