Yes, this issue came out only one month after the last one. Did you notice? I didn’t think so. You probably also didn’t notice that #522 came out three months after #521 (aka a month late). You also probably didn’t notice that in between there was a Superman Special out. Not very observant, are you? Or…more accurately…you don’t care… so you probably don’t care to know that this issue came out so fast on the heels of #522 to get the printing schedule back in line. Well, now you do. You’re welcome.

As mentioned previously, this issue I did the art for a parody of the TV show “Homeland”… I’ll post a sneak peek of some of the art tomorrow, along with some thoughts on my big 100 issue milestone.

Well . . . What are you waiting for, clod?!? Go out and buy a fershlugginer copy already!
