Yeah. So, Danielle, you you are a long time, he man. Shira Fan. Um how did how did you get wrapped up in all this? Because you've contributed Ah, lot to certain things. Different books. Um, you're writing bios now for classics, figures, or even even more than that. So So how did you get wrapped up into getting into, you know, actually getting to work on this stuff? Um, yeah, I guess you know, it's it's kind of crazy, Like when I think about having been a fan since childhood And then, like, I can't believe I'm like, writing stories about, like, you know, he man and she Ra and Teela and Skeletor and all these characters. Um, it was e. It was mostly through Val, honestly, Val Staples, who runs human dot, or Gang and Power Con. He owns a company called M V Creations. Andi. He had gotten, you know, he gets jobs from different companies. And one of those companies in the past had been Mattel. He got the the license to do the comic book in 2000 to the M V creations comic, which is a great comic book on Ben. Subsequently, Val is always kind of kept his, um, foot in the brand involved in some way. And so when Dark Horse, I think the first official project I worked on was the art of human and Masters universe for dark horse. Val called me and said, Hey, do you want to be an adviser with me on this book? And I said, Yeah, of course, absolutely. You know, So, um, that was the first thing I worked on. And then after that, the dark horse books turned into a thing. Like I worked on the mini comic book that you guys use on the show. I did all the interviews for that, and I did a NA article toward the end of the book about one of the lost many comics I was ableto find Get the script from one of the mini comics about without had faker and evil in in it, and it was never published, so called The Ring of Dreams. It's like at the very end of the book, um, and then we went into, like, the newspaper strip book, which was a big passion project of mine. Um, I had known about those newspaper strips for a while. And it just kind of always bugged me because I'm like, how did these all these newspaper strips exist? And the fans don't ever never don't even barely know about them, you know? So, um that turned into, like, a big hunt to try toe acquire all the newspaper strips and finding the creators of the strip and getting all of that material. And dark horse got on board with doing a book about the strips. So andan the character died was another big one that I was very heavily involved in and working on doing research for that in writing, all doing a lot of writing on that. So when all that was going on like the character guide nearly killed me, that was just such an intense I can't even convey what an enormous amount of work that book was toe work on, like it was awesome. Like, the thing that kept me going is like I'm working on a human and she everything This is freaking awesome, Like, I can't believe i e get to do this. You know, I was such an exciting feeling to do it, but at the same time, it was like so intensive. Like every spare hour I had like, I get home from work and it would give, like, jump on the computer and right entries for the character guide endless endless entries for this character guy. And it wasn't only me. It was like James, you talk worked on it, too. And many other people Eric Marshall I could list everybody that worked on It was a lot of people. Anyway, um, I wanted when that was done, I told that I was like, I want nothing to do with E. I need a break. I need a break. I just need a break and
