Letter Column Resource Listing

Imagine this scenario:
You are at a Convention or personal appearance by one of your favorite creators. They are signing stuff. BUT - You don't have the dough to acquire their signature/statement masterpiece work of art...

However, being the all-knowing fan boy that you are - you do know that he/she sent in a response (as a fan) to the letter column of Avengers #238 (random book) and had it published. That Avengers #238 is imminently more affordable than their signature/statement masterpiece work. What a cool (and potentially cheaper) item to have signed!

I need your help! If you happen to JUST know really obscure random stuff like this; I know your pain. It takes a lot of brain power away from more useful productive things. Please share what you know.

If you are a creator type and want to contribute because you are just cool that way... AWESOME.

Please leave a comment or two if you have the time.

Note: I've been posting this question on Twitter to various creators. Some folks graciously responded with "no" or some comment or another and I appreciate their time. I thought I'd track their responses separately as well.

Becky Cloonan - no -
Mike Deodato Jr. -no -
Neil Gaiman - Responded "yes" but didnt send the book or issue.
Jonathan Hickman - no
Bryan Hitch - no - Never wrote one but always enjoys reading the fans letters.
Stuart Immonen -no - he wrote into Marvels "Fun and Games Magazine" but not published.
Greg Pak - no - "I remember laughing out loud a while back when I noticed a Kurt Busiek letter in an old Micronauts comic, though"
Jimmy Palmiotti - no -
Joe Quesada - no - Cant recall having sent one
Dan Slott - no - The one that appears in the pages of MARVEL COMICS THOR #1 is a fake letter/gag
Jim Steranko - no -
