      Just found this on JMS' Facebook page:

      I wanted to extend my thanks here to the good folks at SDCC who this weekend honored me with the International Icon Award. I had no idea it was coming, so I was clueless as to what they were going on about when I arrived for my spotlight to find folks waiting for me on stage. By the time I figured out it was an award, let alone an Icon award, it was time to step up onto the stage to receive it, so I don't know how coherent I was in my acceptance.

      So I wanted to use this space to extend my thanks to everyone at the convention for this amazing recognition, an award that's only been given eight times or so in the long history of SDCC (to folks like George Lucas, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, Matt Groening and Stan Lee). It's an absolutely stunning honor, and I am infinitely appreciative.

        From the news item that Jan posted:

        He joins previous Icon Award winners Frank Miller (2006), Neil Gaiman (2007), George Lucas (2008), Stan Lee (2009), Ray Bradbury (2010), June Foray (2011), and Matt Groening (2012).
        That sure is one heck of an awesome recipient's list to be a part of!

        Congrats to JMS!

          Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

            In my enthusiasm to post the great news, I failed to congratulate Joe.

            Congratulations, JMS! I could not think of a better way to celebrate your 59th birthday.
