Greg holding our original art cover (by Brian Lacy Art) comic book signed by him
If you have the chance to meet Greg Grunberg, do so! he is not only in everything cool (Alias, Lost, Star Wars, Star Trek, Heroes, etc.) but he is also a very nice person who loves to talk to fans.
There's a small story behind the signing of this comic book: The comic book was originally blank when I handle it to him. I asked Greg to signed it close to the top since I was planing on commissioning a sketch someday in the future. This all happened at Fairfax Comic Con (August 26th). Since it was a small (but fun) con, me, my wife and kids got all we wanted to get signed fairly early in the day. So we went to explore the different vendors and stands. That's when I run into Brian Lacey and his wife. they had a stand where they sell Brian's art (BLA!! which is short for Brian Lacey Art). I've met them before at All Star Comic Con, and they remembered me. so I asked him if he could sketch a X-wing fighter shooting down a Tie Fighter on my recently signed comic book. He agreed. about an Hour later, it was done. As you can see, it looks beyond awesome!
I have never before commissioned anything from him, so I didn't know what to expect. the result blew my mind. I took it back to Greg for his "blessing." he loved it! he was amazed by it, and told me "you need to take a picture of it with me!" (so I did). He was more than happy with what the artist did with the blank cover with his signature on it. I later went back to Brian and his wife to share the news and the picture.
Greg also told us that Snap Wexley Lives! Snap didn't die in the Last Jedi. As a matter of fact, he mentioned that in one of the aftermath novels, and maybe in a comic book, it is said that Snap was away on a mission when the events of The Last Jedi happened. He was flying to The U.K. after the con to shoot scenes for Episode IX.
