I love that woman. I love her more than sharks love blood.

Ray Lonnen - 18 May 1940 - 11 July 2014.

Ray Lonnen passed away yesterday after a three-year battle with cancer.

He’s not known for many roles, to tell the truth. He’s best known to those of us who watched The Sandbaggers as Willie Caine. He was charming, he was honest, he was funny, he was absolutely believable. He was the most human spy I’d ever seen on screen, big or small. Not the maudlin self-pity of George Smiley, nor the furious misogyny of James Bond. The one time Willie had a chance for romance, they both ended up with a broken heart. The scene in question had such an impact on me, I pretty much stole if for a bit in Lazarus #3.

I always hoped that, if Queen & Country ever made it to whatever screen, I’d be able to convince whoever was making it to give Lonnen a part, however small. Just a nod to Willie, who is Tara’s father in so very many ways. Just a moment in the Ops Room, something. Just a chance to say thank you.

I suppose what I’m saying is that he gave me, and many others, joy. I didn’t know him, and now I shall never have the honor. But I am sincerely grateful for what he shared with the world, what he shared with me when I was fifteen, sixteen, and looking for those things in the world that would speak to me.

Rest in peace, Mister Lonnen.

If you haven’t yet watched SANDBAGGERS, do so immediately.

The story is getting down to the wire, and i gotta say, I’m particularly happy with how this issue turned out. Have a preview! What do you think?

This is a really solid story with great art and legitimate creepiness. You should be reading it.

So, I’d been trying since late October to get JIM DAVIS to do a cover for us. Sadly, it never happened as he said he didn’t feel like he was up to the task (also, I’m assuming, because it’s called “Sex Criminals”). So, instead, he sent me this in the mail.

Jim Davis sent me a drawing of Garfiled dressed as me.

Jim Davis.

I can die now I guess.

-Chip!

(It’s made out to “Steve Murray” cause that’s my real name if you didn’t know. Taa daa.)

EDIT: Almost forgot to add his handwritten note!

It’s so great.  IT’S TOO GREAT
