    You still getting published in Modern Drunkard magazine? That’s the first place I saw your Drinky Crow comics. I’m not sure if they’re defunct or not, it seems they put out a new magazine every few years or so.

    Hello, Mr. Millionaire,

    How do fans/stalkers get a chance to meet you? Do you ever visit Chicago? I would truly enjoy meeting you, and purchasing a signed copy of one of your books, or, perhaps, an original work. Any plans to come to the Windy City in the near future?

    Can’t get enough Maakies…keep them coming, please!!!!!!

    Danke.

    So, why the flat ocean at the top of this page? Is that the “edge of the world”?
