I've been seeing this chiropractor for the past few weeks and I'm now able to sit down in the chair without discomfort.

I'm also able to draw a little better, so long as I slow down. Wayyyy down. It takes me about four days to get a page done and I can't get too crazy with background details, but if I really take my time and don't freak out when the line jumps a bit, I can actually get a page finished.

The chiropractor also believes that I injured the wrist in my fall. He says that I may still have some swelling there, so we can't do x-rays yet, since the swelling would block the view. He's gotten me this far, I'm going to stick with his plan.

All of you folks have been amazing to me during this and I really want to say thanks.

I'm working on the book again. It should be ready in '09. I hope you all dig it.

Woo hoo!

lol.. yeah, tell me about it. There's still some shaking there, but I've actually been doing some meditation before I draw and I'm making baby steps, but they're steps nonetheless.

That's great news, Tom. I'm excited to hear there will be more TSSTG, but more importantly, you can draw again. Good for you, man.

Whew. I hope this is the turning point for 2008 for everybody who's been having a crappy year (and I am saying that for completely selfish reasons, so sue me!)

And hey, Marvel stuck your great Spidey/Cap story from Avengers Classic into a collection called AVENGERS: FIRST TO LAST PREMIERE HC!

I was hoping there would be some good news!
This is great!

It's gratifying to hear that you're feeling better. I love TSSTG, and I hope for more installments in the future.
