good returns!

okay...

...and the reviews keep pourin' in!
we are getting some really good response for issue 5 since it came out last wednesday! i don't know whether people were moved more by the story, the rather graphic scenes, or just that this issue capped our first story arc here at image, but they seem to like us!
thanks!

our pal, russ burlingame from newsarama, was quick to hit me up on this issue over on his forum, "what's perhappenin'?, featuring our on-going discussion and disinformation. check it out over at:

quiet weekend. snow here. sharon and i went over to dinner at terry austin's house on saturday night for fried catfish and taters. we brought an incredibly rich swiss white chocolate cake for dessert and then the three of us sat around moaning about how stuffed we were...

craig and i are getting more and more excited about both the perhapanauts trade that we've been pulling together this past week or so and, of course, gearing up for the big show in new york city in two weeks! ya goin'?!

that's the New York City Comiccon at the Javitz Center the weekend of february 6-8! we had a great time there last year--got to meet a slew of new people!!--and we're hoping to meet even more this time around!

also, i'm diggin' on the awesome neal adams/green lantern poster for the show...sweeet!

WHY YOU NEVER QUESTION A DRUNK...

I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk
A carton of eggs
A quart of orange juice
A head of lettuce
A 2 lb. can of coffee
A 1 lb. package of bacon

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind
me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.
While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, ''You must be single.''
I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed single.
I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.
Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: ''Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that?''
The drunk replied, ''Cause you're ugly"

'cause i promised i'd post stuff...
here's a watercolor doodle i brushed up the other night while sharon was watching some goofy girl program (the bachelor, i think...) i wasn't watching--but i was listening--while i painted this, i don't know what it is...a muppet? a blue dog? why's it wearing a scarf? i just don't know. (what i do know is that i just don't think that is right for

Again, great, great news about the 'Haps and I cannot think of two guys who deserve it more or for whom I could be happier.

I'm heading down to NYC with my once and future roomie Breezy and looking forward to seeing you guys and maybe hanging out a little at the booth.

Got a couple of artists on my "try to get list," but not too many and I'm hoping this show will mostly be a hang out and have fun as opposed to a stand in a lot of lines weekend.

Awe man... I'm so jealous... I haven't had catfish in 10 years... man... tell me you had cornbread too... god, I've got to get back to the south ASAP!

Thanks Todd, now there's a catfish shaped hole in my belly that's not going to be filled anytime soon.
