According to page 48 of the January 1989 issue of ATLANTA MAGAZINE, in an article by Logan D. Mabe, I actually exist.

How do we know your not just claiming to be this person from 1989, hmmmm? For all we know, you could actually be Mel Torme.

Joking. I caught your post in the " Most sadistic comic thread ". It's a pill sometimes, but I read a research article or two about why/the psychology of)

people online don't believe other people, nor that they are who they claim to be fully (most of this has to do with that if the person doesn't know you personally,

then who they know you as is also who they can only imagine you as. Makes some sense.), ect.

We know your real, that's all that matters.

@Roxanne Starr: Well, and I have a huge affection for Flaming Carrot, ect. Plus we know here that the brass would've outed you along time ago if you were an imposter (they it's been hinted that they themselves are Skrulls recently). But even still, sometimes a person can go as far as to scan their SS card and picture ID and put it online (no one should do this, identity theft people!), and the majority of online users won't believe them anyways due to a psychological arrangement the structure of the internet causes when contrasted with the as of human mindset. It's a really odd to think about, but also a good reason to not care when people do.

No. But Suzie Barrows, who was also interviewed in that AM article, does still occasionally go over to Bob's house to transcribe his tape recordings.

I think she also still has a local radio program about the Church of the Subgenius of which she is a member.

The funny thing is I can see bob being the kind of guy to give a picture of a stripper as a form of "comfort".

He might have some photos somewhere, but I've never seen him give one to anyone.

@CATPANEXE: @hectorsquall: @Hawkeye446:

(Here is the latest attempt at proving my reality.)

"Roxanne Starr is an American comic book letterer who has worked with many industry renowned artists and writers such as Bob Burden, Alan Moore, and Brian Michael Bendis.

Already an experienced graphic designer, Starr's career in comic book lettering started with a chance meeting with Bob Burden, who was looking for a letterer for his surrealist comic book series Flaming Carrot Comics, then published by Aardvark-Vanaheim Comics (1984). After years of lettering this comic book she became the Editor when it was picked up by Oregon publishing house, Dark Horse Comics (1987).

The "comics boom" of the early 1990’s and the industries' transition to computer-generated lettering, was when Starr did most of her professional work, lettering comic books published by Malibu Comics' Ultraverse imprint (1993-1995) and James D. Hudnall's ESPers (1996-1997). But the majority her work was with Caliber Comics lettering Brian Michael Bendis' creator-owned Jinx (1997) and Alan Moore's anthology comic book Negative Burn (1998).

Many of the comic books Starr was worked on (like Negative Burn and Flaming Carrot Comics) have been nominated or won various industry awards including the Harvey Award, the Eisner Award, the Eagle Award, and the Don Thompson Award.

Starr currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and still works with Bob Burden on his various creator-owned projects."

Not especially. But a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

Like everything else in life, it all boils down to financial security. If an entity doesn't actually exist, that entity has nothing coming to her, right? :D

@Roxanne Starr: I recently asked myself what I could do for the reality that is Roxanne Starr, and not what reality can do unto me, and enlightened the Akinator to your presence, whom was himself unaware (though seemingly of much else odd as it's search engine based?). On a side note this seems really weird now that I noticed you have several bios and wiki articles, yes, articles attached the Wikipedia, about your person. Like I said " everyone on the internet isn't who they claim to be ", it's not an actual fact of course, but it is part of the system of thought that comes naturally with use of the internet by design. Keep up the good fight.
