Technical assistance

If anyone out there can explain to me how to post links in that section on the side of the page, I'd appreciate the help. I have the computer IQ of a monkey.

A retarded monkey.

A retarded monkey that almost drowned and suffered brain damage due to oxygen deprivation.

An actual review

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sailor Man, Dev sent me a link tonight to an actual online review of the story. I thought that was kind of cool, especially because the reviewer liked it.

Team Pisano

My friend Randy has started a blog chronicling the adventures of his friend Jay who, in spite of the fact that he's in a wheelchair and can't move his arms, has completed like a trillion marathons by pushing himself backwards 26 miles at a time.

The address is

Check it out and keep it in mind the next time you're stressed because you're having a bad hair day or a coworker is annoying you or any of the other thousands of silly reasons that we all easily get upset by. I know I will.

SAILOR MAN (the end)

Here's the last page.

Thanks to Dev for doing such a great job with this story-- just for fun. Twelve pages is a hell of a lot of work to do, especially for free. It's a lot easier and less time consuming to write a twelve-pager than it is to draw one. Take a bow, pal. You brought this to life and I love what you did with it.

Thanks to everyone for reading. There are a little over a thousand unique visitors to my blog and while the majority of you are silent, I'm going to assume you had a good time with this. If I'm wrong, feel free to kick my ass if you ever see me...if you can!

If this was your first time reading anything that I've written, please keep a look out later this year. I'm currently writing a three-issue arc and a two-issue story for a couple of different DC titles. One is an outer space book and the other is set in the nitty, gritty city. I'm also writing a one-shot for a licensed property for a different company. Those will all be officially announced and out in stores at some point or another, hopefully followed by more work because it's what pays the mortgage. If not, I'll be the shifty looking fellow on the street corner turning tricks for cash.

As for Dev, I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a triumphant return to the world of comics in the very near future. But his plans aren't mine to say.

Thanks for reading, I'm going to go figure out what to post on this blog next. Maybe a nice break from comic related material for a bit is in order.

And then there were two...two pages left, that is.

SAILOR MAN (page nine)

Ummm...ignore the word "mismatched" on this page. It was better the first time I used it, four or five pages ago, in the exact same context.

I think I need an editor...

SAILOR MAN (page eight)

And more Sailor Man goodness as we begin to wind our way down to the conclusion...

SAILOR MAN (page the seventh)

Rolling right along with things...

I've realized the best part of this Sailor Man story is that I don't have to think of a ton to say. Just pop in, post a page, and get back fuss, no muss.

Enjoy! More in 24.

Thanks for reading,

SAILOR MAN (page five)

And sticking with the new page a day motif of the week, here's page five. Let the deconstruction begin...

A friend of mine read the whole story in one sitting the other day and asked me where the idea came from. I like those stories that look at a character in a new light, that kind of take the myth and turn it on its head. Alan Moore wrote a story called 'Pictopia' years ago that always stayed with me so I guess that's the inspiration here.

Anyway, enough rambling from this end. Back tomorrow with page six.

Thanks for reading,

ps- Isn't Dev great?

SAILOR MAN (page four)

Sorry for the delay in posting this. I had some technical issues with uploading files and a crazy weekend that left me no time to solve it. But now we're good to go.

Here's page four. I'm going to post a new page every day this week so check back soon.

Thanks for reading,
