David Mack Nominated for Eagle Award

Sharing Two Secrets
During his thread about sharing secrets, David Mack revealed:
When I was a kid, my mother was involved with various different sort of religious or para-religious-survivalist, Armageddon-type groups that most people would probably categorize as cults.

We went from very regular types of churches to increasingly far out-type places, culminating in some very strange events and involving strange people living at my house and my mother disappearing for a while on the road on a kind of mission to fight evil spirits/demons that resulted in a phone call from the police.

And stockpiling food and water and other things for the last days.

Also involving prayer healing and casting out demons, etc.

It was pretty hardcore strange but my little brother and I didn't fully realize how strange until later as we were so young.

I fully intend to write a story about it in detail some day.

Mr. Mack also noted:
I still feel a kind of guilt or regret for accidentally shooting my brother in the face with a bow and arrow.

Also for accidentally breaking Andy Lee's knee.

And for various other harm that I directly or indirectly caused to people in my youth.

(I think a lot of the Seiko story in Scarab was from my own life. My mom used to say that I didn't know an activity was over until someone was bleeding).

I always loved animals as a kid.

When I was around 3 or 4 years old, there was an old man that we would see on the street with his dog while my mother and I walked to the grocery store. The old man would let me pet the dog.

One time, walking with my mother I saw the old man and the dog and I immediately ran to it in glee. Laughing and arms out in anticipation of petting the dog.

Even though it was a big dog and I was very tiny, and I had pet it many times before, I somehow spooked the dog by running at it.

The dog took off and ran into the street, where it was promptly hit by a car and killed. Right in front of the old man watching.

I felt terrible.

And felt bad about it for years as a kid.

David Mack & Andy Lee Mentioned at Comicon.com
Thanks to David Mack for reporting that Jennifer M. Contino talked about meeting David Mack and Andy Lee during the Pittsburgh Comicon at Comicon.com:
I shouted "hi" to Greg Horn, David Mack and Andy Lee who were all around the same general area. I told all three I appreciated them taking time to answer PULSE questions and told Andy he better get back into comics, but he said he's having fun doing (among other things) beer commercials illustration work. We enjoyed seeing him paint a Batman picture in that distinctive Andy Lee style in someone's sketchbook. Someday I must get him to make a turtle for me in my sketchbook.

Praising David Gabriel
After reading that David Gabriel, who is Marvel's Vice President of Sales, will work behind the counter and chat with fans at Coliseum of Comics on April 26 from noon until 6 pm according to a press release, David Mack noted:
And David Gabriel is a stand up guy. Everytime I speak with him, he is incredibly knowledgable and considerate of retailers and the entire process of getting my books to the readers.

He's very good at his job and a good person to talk to. If any locals are there, tell him hello from me if you see him.
