It’s been a very active week for the Velocity family… I’d like to offer some congratulations on a few milestones real quick: first off, former Velocity newsletter scribe TOM BATTEN continues his ascension to literary superstardom with a piece in the NEW YORKER this week: http://www.newyorker.com/
humor/daily-shouts/the- vampire-hunter-receives-a- phone-call-from-his-parents? mbid=social_facebook
...and also, former Velocemployee and current Velocipal JAKE TUCKER marries his sweetheart Lela today! See? Sometimes good things happen to good people.
...and also also, the former Velocemployee and current Velocipal TANNER BRAATEN, who holds the all-time Velocity record for both catching shoplifters AND banning ne’er-do-wells, says farewell to the River City as he fulfills his lifetime goal of stalking Steve Ditko by moving up to New York City. His soft, gentle voice will be missed around the shop.
And finally, RAWN GANDY’s 10 month old son ROLLIE dead-lifted a PT Cruiser clear over his head. Man, that kid is strong.
