A special birthday shout-out to writer/artist Jimmy Palmiotti, the best friend and advisor of almost everyone in comics–The Beat included–and creator or co-creator of comics from The Pro, Monolith, 21 Down, Painkiller Jane, Back to Brooklyn, and of course a long, acclaimed run on Jonah Hex.
c 1995, Rome, Italy, on a tour for Ash, the comics Jimmy co-created and published with Joe Quesada
Although Jimmy’s globetrotting adventures are legendary…
…for sure there’s nothing he likes better than hanging out with his girl, the great Amanda Conner.
If you know Jimmy, you know there’s no one else like him. You also know that he’s the best. We love you, Jimmy!
