The Vague Sense That I Am DyingSometimes when I wake up, I get the vague sense that I am dying.More Like This
That in my dark room, where I can only see a little light through the north-facing blinds, and where I am all alone in my warm and disarrayed bed, I think I might be dying.
And I pick up my phone, thinking I'll call someone. But I never do, because really, who would I call? Emergency services would not know what to do with me. My parents are at work or otherwise not necessarily available.
Then I decide I do not want to say good-bye, because it would be sad, and I might even cry at the scene.
So I lay there a bit longer, lingering to see if I really am still alive or have much time left, enough to rise again. And after a good while, I can breath freely again, and my chest loses much of its tension, and I realize that I am alive, and I have survived another day.
It is a little sad, to die alone. I think I do each morning, even as I am overall surviving. I've been thinking of death a lot recently.
Even though my days go so s

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being

Yes, hello again.
I'm sorry, my memory fails me. Which one are you?
Well, I was Martin Fry.
I'm sorry, those records are terminated. What's your number?
No, no, not your queue number. Your executive number, the eight-digits.
You expect me to remember that?
Well, it is within the seven plus-minus two limit, which you should achieve if you've reached up to level one. Or, are you the reincarnation?
Yeah, that's right. That's what I wanted to discuss with you.
Did you miss your stop?
I only sent you off a few hours ago.
Yes, my point exactly. What's the deal with turning me into a sea turtle?
You said you liked swimming, and that you'd like a long life.
Yeah, but their life expectancy from hatching is only about four seconds, innit? I was eaten by a gull after two. You do realise that the odds of me becoming an old sea turtle are about one

To free them of their joy,
A meteor crashes on their land,
Intent to destroy.
That leaves an elephant alone,
Floating endlessly in space,

I’m just ‘bisexual’,
I know that for sure.
It does exist.
It is for real.
It’s not a lie or a cloak,

5 Reasons to WriteI wrote a blog once that urged comic artists to try writing their own books. I held back a bit on what I said--Punk Rock Jesus hadn't come out yet, so I didn't feel like I had the proper authority to really speak up.More Like This
Since then, there's been a lot more discussion about the etiquette of publishers toward their freelancers, the recent rise of creator owned books, and the effects of Hollywood moving into comics (or vice versa). And as friend of mine at Newsarama pointed out recently, I'm one of a few guys who's found a middle ground--not only because I'm writing and drawing my own book, but because my OGN is partially owned by DC Comics.
Certain events of the last year have created new concerns within our industry. Do you still need to work for big publishers if you want to "make it"? Do they deliver a better product than creator owned books? Are the Big Two treating creators as fairly as they've always been? Between the rise of digital comics and comic-based movies, are creators getting
