Hello there. Most of you know me in some capacity. I’ve been in this business for 20+ years and certainly been involved in a lot of crazy things in that time.  Last year I launched a book called Think Tank with my friend and artist Rahsan Ekedal.  We’re both very passionate about the book. WE LOVE DOING IT!  And, I hope that enthusiasm for what we’re doing carries through to the final read.

I’ve been very straight up with everyone about this book; we’ll keep doing it if it finds a large enough audience to sustain it.  We’ve committed through issue #20 at this point, which is 16 more than I thought we’d get to, but we’d both like to do the book for a long, long time.

Why am I writing this now?  Because this week the second trade paperback of Think Tank is in stores along with the 2nd printing of the first one.  I’m not too proud to ask for your help.
