    Pretty easy to do on this site. TDT.org can be cumbersome to post pics. I'll send ya a PM if ya want to send them to me via email.

But I'm cool with that
    I never judge signatures as mine is really just a scribble. I never learned cursive writing and used to print my signature. It eventually morphed into a scribble. I always assumed Mr. Hills is printed because it is not his real name, I assume his signature on contracts is very different from the one we see.

    Name's real, just abbreviated to a point. I'm sure in regards to the contracts.

    My point is the only part that would be in his legal Signature is Joe and that would be in question as his name is 'Joseph Hillstrom King'. He may sign Joe rather than Joseph but even if he were to include his middle name, most don't, he would probably sign Hillstrom rather than Hill. Complete speculation as I know nothing about the actual subject.

    Not to steal your thunder, but here's Scott Ian's signature from his first book.

    (Maybe I'll be the only one who finds this funny, but the file name is 4666.jpg.)

    I've always really liked Robert McCammon's signature. And Neil Gaiman has a good one too.

    I'm sure it's all legal like when it comes down to cutting the paychecks. Would be interesting to see his actually sig, I agree.

    He had some t-shirts that featured his silhouette leaping into the air (much like Jordan) accompanied by the line Air Ian. But I commented on FB somewhere that Air Ian sounds a lot like aryan and maybe that would be a bad association to make. I haven't seen him reference Air Ian since and I'd like to take full credit.

    Before my signature became a scribble I printed it. It was only questioned once. A bank teller I was cashing a check at said she could not cash my check because my signature was printed and not 'written'. She said this before I even had my Id out as I had signed the check as soon as I got to the counter. I showed her my license which matched what I had done and explained to her that the government accepted it and her responsibility was to ensure the signatures matched. If I did anything different they would not match. She begrudgingly cashed the check.

    I've always wanted one of those shirts, but by the sounds of it, you ruined it for me!

    (In all seriousness, based on his background, I can totally see why Air Ian/aryan would be BAD.)

    My background is banking and I've had this talk with so many employees - a signature doesn't mean cursive, or text-book-cursive-writing like my grandmother insisted. It's just a written mark. I've had so many people tell me that I need to include my middle name in my signature and I always counter that my signature is my signature. Besides, you can barely make out the J in my signature, so as far as they know, my middle name is there.

    Hell, even an X is a legal signature.

    I used to work somewhere that cashed payroll checks for migrants. We had an agreement with the growers that they would not challenge a check we cashed. They bused the workers to us. We cashed the check, sold them a wire transfer for money being sent home and sold them basic items they needed. I remember whenever I had a new employee work the desk that day they would give me the strangest look when I told them 'don't ask for Id, don't worry about the signature, they will mark an X and you will cash it.'

    When I first opened my box and saw the pin I thought it was Eddie from Iron Maiden. I love the hat. And I haven't read Apex magazine in quite some time. So that was a nice surprise.
