We're Still Here!

Very sorry for the uncharacteristic and prolonged absence from Blogging, but I'll bet everyone's lives have had periods that are just like Donald's in this great William Van Horn cover -- and this has been one of mine!  

My usual designation of "Horrifically Busy" doesn't begin to describe it, but know it's nothing personally horrible or injurious... just busy.  

The "day job" has totally dominated the last several weeks, there have been things to write for IDW and Fantagraphics (that's the GOOD part of being "Horrifically Busy"), and even domestic and personal obligations have run at a much higher pitch than normal as of late.  

I haven't even been to the comics shop for more than a month, so most of you are caught up on comics I still have not seen, much less written about.  

But, I *do* expect to finally go this evening, when DONALD DUCK # 12, with my dialogued "Vicious Cycles" is out - even if I have to force the time to do so.  

There are unpublished comments that I will also get to soon, but don't let that stop you from sending more.  Indeed, they will cheer me up and help get me back into the groove. 

Anyway, I hope to have a post on DONALD DUCK # 12 soon - if, for no better reason than I've ALREADY read it, and that'll save me some time!  

Oh, and look for a cameo by two unexpected characters in "Vicious Cycles", and we'll see you soon!

UPDATE:  Wednesday evening, I did go to the comic shop and picked up a month-plus of comics - including DONALD DUCK # 12.  

Then, I did a rare thing!  It was a PERFECT day in New York, and so, rather than go straight home, I pulled into a McDonald's, ordered some food, that included some perfectly hot and fresh fries, sat in my car with all the windows open and read "Vicious Cycles" while eating those perfect fries and some small burgers!  

It was wonderful, and exactly what I needed to help shake off the "Horrifically Busy Blues"!  

I'd also like to thank everyone who has welcomed me back, and know that I will get all the backlog of comments published, with my usual responses, over the next 2-3 days.  

...Then, we'll be caught up and can move forward again!  Thank you all for your patience!
