Now that I recall the mod for the comics board on the bbs was supposed to be a Marvel pro, but he never revealed his name. I asked him if he was Herb Trimpe , lol. He went by Fearless Fredd.
There was also a TCJ writer, and I did participate on the TCJ forum for a while. Bunch of pros used to post, but not as many as you'd think.
And since I was always a weaboo and moved in weaboo circles I had some interactions with Toren Smith, he asked me to write a column once, but I turned him down because I had no clue about the stuff, apparently he didn't like writing 'em and tried to offload them onto anyone.
Oh and Joey Manley consulted me about credit card processing before he started his webcomics paysite, what was it called, Modern Tales.
