    Hey, Tom! In case you ever wondered if you have a fan in Greece, well, you have at least one! I’ve been following your blog for more than three years and am a proud owner of your TMAoC book (alas not signed!) and two of your limited edition prints (the Bats and the Sherlocks). I haven’t had the chance to meet you yet in one of the comic cons you usually attend or sign up for one of your workshops, mostly due to the distance and the expenses involved. However, if you decide to do one in the Eastern cities (maybe New York, Washington, Boston), I may be able to make it, even more so if you do one in Europe, no matter which country or city (Frankfurt, Munich or London are fine!). I believe the interest in such a workshop in Europe will exceed your expectations and of course you and the Lovely Anna are always welcome in Greece too!
