Who's going crazy..

Again, I know it's fashionable of late to rip on Alex Ross, but I think this cover looks awesome.

Not when I need it..

It's funny how when I don't really have anything to talk about, I can find a million things to blog about, but when I have big things going on or a lot of exciting things to talk about I get what amounts to "blog-fright" (Note to self : Get Curt to get the lawyer to trademark that phrase).

I just end up feeling like the task of organizing my memories into coherent thoughts and those thoughts into interesting word-collections ("sentences") is hell of daunting. Or that I'm never going to be able to re-tell my adventures with the same kind of incredible adventure-y-ness that they deserve.

And then I keep putting off doing any regular blogging as well because I keep telling myself, "Dude, you really need to get on that SPX report." And now I've got this Post-It note on my desk filled with post ideas I need to get to, but can't until I get the SPX report out of the way.

So having said that, I should say that SPX was really awesome.
I mean, really.
It's where we need to be.
There is no way Curt and I (and thus, Let's Be Friends Again) will not become a permanent fixture of SPX.
I don't have everything scanned or uploaded yet, so I can't post all my pictures, but there are pictures forthcoming.
I will tell you in advance I own the two greatest things Bryan Lee O'Malley has ever drawn.

Oh, and before I forget, the above art was a 2 minute coloring job I did on a panel from page 5 of Let's Be Friends Again #1 which is being syndicated in it's entirety over at (you guessed it)!

As today is Thursday (and Tuesdays and Thursdays are the days we've deigned fit to bless you with new content), there is a new comic/page up as well as insightful writer's commentary from Curt.
Please go check it out, subscribe to the feed, and tell a few dozen of your friends so that we can be friends with them too.. again... for the first time.

We have stories..

Curt Franklin is basically the best guy anyone could ever know.
He's honest, trustworthy, dependable, upstanding, courageous, intelligent, handsome, clever, witty, sharp, understanding, forgiving, encouraging, funny, and most importantly the ballin'-est dude I know, all without being a dick about it.
Thanks to him I've seen places and done things I otherwise never would have seen or done.
Some of these things include meeting Evan Dorkin, James Kochalka, Patrick Gleason, Mike Mignola, Tad Stones, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Nate Bellegarde, Benito Cereno, Becky Cloonan, Dan DiDio, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murhpy, Bill Corbett, and Darth Vader.
Some other things include finding myself passed out in strip club bathrooms, seedy motels in shady parts of town, and in rehab.
That last bit might be a joke... since he's helped me develop this drinking problem it's hard to remember everything clearly.
My point is this, Curt is as good and true a friend and talented and supportive a creative partner as anyone could ever hope for, and I am very thankful that I am able to say he is both to me.
Today is his birthday, and I hope that it is a wonderful one.

Friends won't let you down..

This is a quick little Batman I drew.
Full SPX report coming soon!
I may not post it here though, I may have to go ahead and post it at since the trip was a Let's Be Friends Again-Brand Adventure.
