First off, WHAT THE HELL ALFRED?!!!!!! How could I let it go so long?

Just after Comic-Con, Sideshow offered me a job and I started working in-house (still freelancing, but full time in-house). Earlier this year, we made that Sideshow relationship official and I am now a full time Sideshow employee
