Just uploaded the final page of Pierce 2 to the printer for Imperium! I have FINALLY gotten back up to the point where all the immediately due lettering is finished. I have a couple of short stories to letter for Digital Webbing Presents but they aren't due just yet and I have some writing to do. Also, I assume I'll be getting the rest of Trailer Park of Terror 5 soon as well as starting on Lost Squad 6...so I should stop messing about on here and get to writing while I can!
It's the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. You don't need me to tell you that, you probably heard something about it within minutes of waking...or if you're like me your mind has subconsciously been counting down to the day. If you're like me you'll be up at 4:45 am eastern times with the news channel on (Fox News for me...probably CNN for most of you) checking to see that the bastards haven't struck again at the same moment.
Five years on I am still overwhelmed with emotions surrounding that day five years ago and in the events of the years since. I had thought to vent them here but...well, based on my experiences on forums and websites surrounding comics and entertainment chances are that some things I have to say would offend you. Lets just say that I lean to the right and I'd bet my last dime most or all of you lean to the left. So I won't go into detail.
Briefly: Too many have gotten soft. Too many have slipped back into complacency. Too many are weak. Someday we'll all pay for that AGAIN. Maybe after next time, if there's anything left, people will REALLY understand.
I pray for those lost and their families, I pray for the men and women of the armed forces around the world and their families.
I pray for the well-intentioned but misguided.
(The image above was part of my personal response to 9/11. Many of us in the online comics community drew pictures and shared them online. Mine was also used on T-Shirts to raise money. Please bear in mind that I'm a WRITER not an artist...it's colored by hand as I knew nothing about Photoshop at the time. The layout is a little weak, I've learned a lot since then. Some people read some very strange things into this picture...it's not violent, it's not calling for blood...it says you can't get us down, you can't defeat us because no matter how many times you knock us down we're going to get back up.) **Click it to see it HUGE**
