Avoid Banfield Pet Hospital

I have had terrible experiences with Banfield Pet Hospital. And clearly, I am not the only one.

Google the name Banfield Pet Hospital and read a page or two of the many complaints before you give them a credit card or are foolish enough to sign up for one of their wellness programs.

Here's a good place to start:

Robin Riggs to Ink Dave Cockrum’s Futurians Return

Aardwolf Publishing has announced that Robin Riggs will be the finisher on Dave Cockrum’s FUTURIANS RETURN, a project that Aardwolf successfully funded viaKickstarter in August. Riggs will be replacing Bob Wiacek due to scheduling conflicts.

“Bob Wiacek’s sensational pin-ups are still a vital part of this book but he had to bow out and we were delighted to find someone as talented and meticulous as Robin to help bring this important book to completion,” said Clifford Meth, the project’s editor. “I am a huge fan of Robin’s work and Dave's widow Paty Cockrum has been delighted with what he’s producing. I’m only sorry that Dave Cockrum isn’t with us to enjoy this book finally coming to life. He would have loved Robin's work.”

Paty Cockrum, the original Futurians’ colorist, is coloring the book, which will be lettered by Tom Orzechowski. FUTURIANS RETURN also features a painted cover by Ray Lago and additional pin-ups by Bill Sienkiewicz.

“I’m happy to be part of this book,” said Riggs. “Dave Cockrum was one of the immortals and working over his pencils is an honor.”
