Strangers in the night: The San Francisco Chronicle's "Night Cabbie" encounters comic artist Phil Noto:
I ask, "What convention are you in town for?"

He smiles, then says, "The Comic Book Convention."

"Are you a collector?" I ask.

He says, "No."

"I was when I was a kid, I saved them all," I tell him. "Batman, the Blackhawks and Superman."

"I do covers," he says. "I've done some Blackhawks and Wonder Woman -- Wonder Woman covers 198 and 199."

"Are you famous?" I ask him.

"I don't think so," he answers.
