I just wanted to take a minute to say why I continue to volunteer for Friends of Lulu and spend my free time putting together things like the Lulu Awards.
1. To help young (and young-at-heart) creators have some way to publicize their work.
2. For the female & male fans who have contacted me to continue the organization.
3. To recognize the unsung work of certain women in comics (including editors, retailers, marketers, etc. as well as the comic creators of many decades past) who never really get/got the spotlight and attention they deserve from the larger community.
That's it. Those are the reasons I continue with Friends of Lulu. I volunteer for them. I work for them. I answer to them.
