A tribute...

To those creative professionals whose work we either never notice, never think about, or notice only when they screw up.

Many people know the names of the best comic book artists - but not the wonderful colorists and letterers who are also vital to the industry.

How about all the cameramen, sound guys, grips, gaffers and best boys who are needed to make a movie?

Editors of novels. We notice the editor's name on an anthology, but on a novel? Do you even know who edited your favorite book?

So, I'm taking a moment to give a shout out to the 'behind the scenes' people. The people who correct a writer's spelling errors. Who put those little finishing touches to the art or to the CGI monster. Who make sure to catch the actor's good side.

To all of you. Thank you.
