I'm thankful for...

... all of you guys. Seriously. I don't have as many fans as some artists, but I can really count of a small, devoted group to follow me from one hair brained project to another without missing a beat.

Thanks to you, folks. I loves ya' all.

I'm also thankful for my family, especially my wife. I had dinner at my father-in-law's small diner today. Just us, in a booth, eating the normal Turkey day stuff, after the place had closed. While we're eating we see this homeless guy walking up, and my wife jumps up (without any hesitation) and says to me "tell him to come in, we have food for him". So, he sat two booths down, eating quietly, and would mumble "thank you" softly every so often. She even warmed up his coffee with a refill and a smile.

I'm lucky to have her.

Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all had your self a great time with who ever is important to you.

best,
Mike

And I'm thankful for people like your wife who shares with those in need and people like you who put in the long, long hours at the drawing board to share their talent with us.

Mike, you have more fans than you know, if like me, they drop in but seldom post.

Let me change that by posting to say, I'm a fan and enjoy your work!

Thanks a million, guys! You're all great.

I'm really trying to go all out this year, and give as much back to comics as I've gotten. This'll include free web comics of all the Hysteria stuff.

And, yeah, my wife is something else. Never ceases to amaze.

Seriously, thanks!

Mike
