Interminable Ramble

Chris Roberson makes up stories.



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.



(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




Hey, I wrote that scene! So glad to do what I can to help cut down on cape related shark-dragging deaths. Super-excited for the new Batgirl!

I think that one of the things that Allison and I are both proudest of, in terms of what Monkeybrain has been able to accomplish, is the way in which we’ve helped raise the profile of a lot of talented writers and artists who maybe weren’t getting the attention that their talents merited. That feels pretty awesome.
