HAPPY HORRORDAYS!

Hey, Kids!

Been awhile, I know; the fates have decreed that I should have the worst season ever, and so...

Couple notes here: I have a MYSPACE account, look me up. I also have an account with COMICSPACE. If you ain't seen it, do so, quickly!

Hope all is well with y'all and y'allses. The Christmas holiday has always been a downer for me, not the least reason being that my Dad passed away right around this time...

I am grateful for my wife, for not only putting up with me, but also supporting just about everything I do, even when it's not in my best interests, and letting me learn from my mistakes. I'm grateful for my daughter. I'm grateful for my family, my sisters, whom I love to death, even though we don't talk; my brother, who put me on the path to comics to begin with. When I was quite young, my bro was my hero. I thought he was the greatest artist in the world, next to John Buscema and Neal Adams, and I longed for the day when I could work with him. Although he never got in the biz, and I never got to draw comics, I owe all of it solely to him. If you ever read this, Lee... thanks.

I'm grateful as well for my family's families; all the nieces, nephews, cousins, just for living their lives as best they can. Special shout out to my grand-niece Janine, who beat her bout with Cancer by pretty much kicking its ass! Props to Phillip, Renee, and Phillip Anthony, too!

I'm fortunate to have many circles of friends (from the inner circle to the outer rings) who have shown me nuttin but love over the years, and they include (in no particular order) Shorty/Candy/TMalo70/Tony Maldonado, Juan Arevalo, Johnny Gomez, Nick Muntean, Eric LeFeber, LaMorris Richmond, Tony Akins, Lou Bank, Mark Cox, Dan Dougherty, Doug Klauba, Len Kody, Gary Reed, Norm, Kevin, Mike, Sonny, TTrib, Davers, Andy, Tom, Cindy, Iris, Vic, and many many more, too many to mention here.

Hope you all have a great holiday, and please give Peace a chance.

Best,

Raf
