My love letter to Erik Swanson


So, you may not know who Mr. Swanson is. Erik is my long time friend from college who is now a designer and artist living and working in DC. He's also had a hand in almost every comic (the creator owned ones at least) I've ever done. From doing hand cut tones and paste up letters with me on the original Hysteria back in 98 and 99(!), to doing all the pre-press and lettering as well as production help on the web comic, dude has been coming through for me time and time again for years!

I couldn't ask for a better friend, or for a more knowledgeable designer!

Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff. Erik just hooked up a new batch of pages for the web comic, as well as dropping in "space" behind the hand drawn planets I drew. This page only works cause of Mr. Swanson. SO, three chears for you homey! ;)

Best,
Mike

HA! I checked out the Blog today and did a double take when I saw my name. HA! All good homie. You set them up and I knock them down. Easy.

Right on, brother! Wish I had a million dollars, so I could give it to you for all the times you've helped me!

Or, rather, I'd give you a sandwich and a firm hand shake and keep 999, 995.00 for myself.

You'd be on your own for a drink tho.

Mike
