I met Mr. Hama (don't feel comfortable enough to call him "Larry"), briefly at the San Diego show in 2007. I thought I'd keep my composure, but when I was next to him I freaked out like a little fanboy and babbled my appreciation, rather incoherently. He just smiled and said "ohh, thank you!" I've met pro athletes, politicians and celebrities...but with Hama, the giddy little 8 year old inside me took over.
A few weeks later, I kicked myself and said: "darnit! I shoulda' asked him about his original plans for the Snake-Eyes Graphic Novel!" According to a letters page in GI Joe, circa issue 70, it was supposed to be a silent issue, set entirely in Vietnam. Rather different from what eventually saw print in the "Snake-Eyes Trilogy".
But yeah... I thought he was a super nice guy. From all other accounts I've heard, that rings true.

On a sidenote, I was paging through Flickr looking for 2009 NYCC pics and stumbled onto a fellow tanker.

Image Googling "The Baroness" and finding myself on page 1 is weird and cool.

not a fan of what he did in the comics. all the characters were bland and had the same emotions, and he made snake eyes out to be a god. then lets not forget the stupidity of how snake eyes knows everyone and how firefly was destroyed in the latter issues. heck, snake eyes was in my top 56 favorite characters until i read the comics. ill take the cartoons. but im glad you got to meet him.

I look forward to seeing his cameo in the new flick and being the only one in the theater who points at the screen at yells "f--k yeah!".
I hope to get a chance to meet the man one of these days too, very awesome you scored an autographed filecard.

Okay, I have to ask. What episode of MASH? I don't recall him in it, and I have all 11 seasons.

Larry Hama is a friggin' genius. A master of his craft and a living legend.
They should make an Exclusive LARRY HAMA fig. He'd be the biggest thing since sliced Yellow Stalker bread!!
