thank you…a return of respect…


thank you everyone for this support… it may sound funny, but i really and truly didn’t expect this unbelievable response…the strips that start running today were completed over a month ago… in order to maintain the continuity of the strip, my final decision will have to be made this week…as this week would be the week i would start work on the january 2, 2012 strip…

in other words, if there is no strip on january 2, you know what i have decided.

if i didn’t care what my readers thought, or i had a disdain for the comic strip genre, i would have just ended the run without any prior warning.  but doing that would be a disservice to  those of you who’ve invested so much into what i do.  it would also be disrespectful to the artform that has been my voice for all of my adult life.

i feel the strips i’ve done for the month of december 2011 are some of my finest work.  i approached them as though they would be my last.  again, i have not decided one way or another if they will be…but better safe than sorry, right?
i’ve always prided myself on being brutally honest in my work.  whatever wart i have, you see.  whatever shortcoming i have as a human being, you see.   that won’t change.

this is the hardest decision i’ve ever had to make.  how can you say goodbye to your best friend?
