congratulations, kelly~!


right outta the gate, i got some super-happy news--BIG CONGRATULATIONS to perhapa-brother, AMBER ATOMS creator/writer/artist, and all 'round great guy, KELLY YATES and his Family on the birth of the newest yates--emilia grace! born yesterday at 9 am, she joins kelly, his beautiful wife, leanne, and big brother, ivan. (his real name is isaac, but i call him ivan to drive his dad, he should learn now that that's how his uncle todd rolls...)

all best wishes of love and happiness, kel~
to you and the whole family~!


speaking of creator/writer/artists, my pal, JIM STARLIN, is giving everybody a much-anticipated glimpse at what he's been up to with BREED III, the newest adventures in his deadly world of hybrids and assassins! it's out this week and you can catch a preview of the action over at newsarama!

(and thanks to our, pal, russ for hooking this up...!)


throughout the course of your average day, craig, rich woodall and i will exchange several e-mails (if i'm not too busy writing...i try not to jump on the internet until the work is done, y'know, like at 4:30 or so...but then, ya need some reference or something and...well, there ya are. and these bastards just keep reelin' me in, with one email after another...$%@#ers!!!)

invariably, rich starts photoshopping (photoslapping!) together some of the funniest images you'll ever see, some not it for public consumption--if i had more room i'd show you the entire forrest gump parody he put together featuring craig and me--but here's one i love that has become my new desktop! (craig is realizing that he is farther along in the next perhapanauts story arc--5 issues, not 6...!)

and, here...penguin for penguin's sake...

First and foremost, a big congrats to Kelly and Family. While his solo work is good, his collaborations are beautiful.

Second, Todd, have a great time in Albany.

Now, on to the Five.

1. Olive Oil.

2. Corderoy - I lived in my cords in the 1970's, but haven't worn that fabric since.

3. Bismark.

4. Elvira.

5. Insects.

I knew all those except Bismark. Shameful, since I'm German.

I had corduroy pants as a child and absolutely hated them after the second grade. That was around the time I became "the fat kid" and, could kind of hear me coming down the hall if you know what I'm getting at.
