How’s THAT for a weird development?  We’ve got one last loose end to tie up, so be here next week for a special double-sized update of SCAPULA!

…but now, allow me a brief ramble (don’t worry, you can always skip this).  Christmas is in a couple of days, and that always gets me feeling very grateful for everything that I have.  Believe it or blow it off, but I am thankful for everything that’s gone on with this weird comic over the years and all of the even weirder people I’ve gotten to know over the internet.  Everyone out there who has taken their time to read my comics and comment on them has given me so much back in return (and, of course, an even bigger thanks to those of you who have spent your pennies on the merchandise and art in the Store section!), so I’d like to share my heartfelt thanks with all of you.

Thank you to all of my readers, the ones who return week after week and leave your kind feedback (or snippy sarcasm, which is also fun to read) and share your stories and amusing anecdotes.  Thank you for your comments, compliments, critiques and criticisms (and especially those of you who have really worked hard on giving me your feedback, namely Trevor and his brilliant essays on the cast of SCAPULA).  Thank you to my fellow webcartoonists who have always shown your support to a fellow wacko artist on the web and shared those links and guest strips.  And finally, thank you to the trolls who are never quite pleased and yet keep coming back to show your attention…I am truly honored.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good dose of rum-and-eggnog!
