Please note: Laura Galen=Awesome

Nickelodeon Magazine, where I have been lucky enough to be comics editor for 12 years, has been discontinued. I'm incredibly honored to have worked there. It was the job of my life--I got to work with a vast array of talented and funny people (staff and cartoonists) and the end result was always a magazine I was proud to have been a part of. An amazing opportunity--one that frankly still dazzles me.

I owe it all to--and kids everywhere should thank--Laura Galen, who started and ran the magazine (as editor-in-chief and then as Editorial Director) for all 16 years, hired the staff, and always, always pushed for excellence. Take a bow, Laura! We love you and we loved Nick Mag!

Cheers to Laura Galen and all the other great editorial staff of the magazine. Not just the comics but the ENTIRE magazine!

Good luck wrapping up Nick Mag over the next few months! And I hope you find a way to stay in the comics biz once this is all over.

Long live Nick Mag. Though we may not see future printed editions, it will go down as the best of the best. Thanks for all of your hard work, Chris.

Getting my first comic in Nickelodeon Magazine will always be one of the supertop highlights of my career. I remember where I was, what I was wearing, who was with me, and what was happening when I first got word that I got in. And I don't remember what I had for lunch today. That's VIVID, son.

I love you guys, and I owe you so much. Look at me now! A ten-thousandaire* with five - FIVE pairs of jeans. Thanks for giving a good ol' boy from West Texas a chance.

Good luck to you guys, and I hope to see you soon.

So sorry to see the magazine go. Good luck with future projects, Chris, and I hope I get another chance to work with you sometime.
