An update on the Blackguard front: one of my old contributors has elected to come aboard! Since we last worked together he has changed his name to Hugo (but here's a hint: he did the Popeye cover for SP#12)! Check out more of his stuff here.
Also, this morning I received a reply from Doug Iannucci (that creator of the wonderful and heartwarming Stan and Edna Nats) who proclaimed his great joy that I was launching a brand new comix zine anthology wingding, and that he would produce and send a contribution during his imminent vacation in sunny Rhode Island!
Yes! Everything is coming together magnificently!
