• And it’s not really a coming or going, but best wishes to Jim Lee and Carla Michelle, who became engaged this weekend!



  1. Ben Morse says:

    Kiel Phegley is a filthy deserter.

    I will miss him.

  2. ShutUpRob says:

    Ambush Bug, Tiny Titans, the entire kids line. Jann Jones is an immense loss to DC. I wonder if Ambush Bug: Year None #6 had something to do with it?

    “Viva Ambush Bug!”

    — Rob

  3. Didn’t Jann Jones just marry James Robinson? And isn’t he a Los Angeles resident?
    Or am I thinking of aomeone else.
    (A loss to DC at any rate).

  4. Eric Reynolds says:

    No, that was J’onn J’onz.

  5. Tony Lee says:

    Jann has moved to LA to be with James. I saw her before she left DC (around February) and shortly after the engagement and she was sickeningly happy. Too much happiness. :-)

    Good luck, Jann!

  6. Maybe Jann Jones is from Mars and has gone on to join the Justice League?

  7. Congratulations and good wishes!

    Congrats Jim!! :)

    The only way I know who the one you are engaged to, is because of all the con video footage of your signings and she was there with ya!
