I'll be over later to crash on your couch. ;)

And it is a great envelope!

I was going to block it out but his lettering is awesome. Plus, it's technically a business address and, therefor, not hard to get. If anyone wanted to come hand me a Postcards pitch at gun-point they'd find a way.

But, just in case, I blocked it out. I'm generally not a paranoid person. Thanks.

I honestly don't know which one made me smile more - Tom's envelope or this fax cover-letter from Phil Hester:

Psssst, someone needs to speak to the Marvel gods and convince them to let Beland take over SMLMJ after McKeever leaves...IF it's not cancelled that is.

Alright then, one more thing before I'm off to class. Noel Tuazon's interpretation of what I do all day that he sent along with his signed contract:

Pssssst. IF we keep going on the series without Sean (I don't know anything, Im just saying), I have already put my two cents in on the matter, you can be sure of that. I gave three recommendations and Tom was one. :) Not saying the others, so don't ask!

Thanks, Jen... I thought I kept that secret for a PRETTY LONG DAMNED TIME!! ;)


I'm also glad I could make Jason smile after a horrible day. Solid Gold!!

One of the greatest things about working with Noel is that he'll always use you for his warm-up sketches. And put you in his comics, too.

Have you read Fialkov the Comic yet?

Even after all the pages are turned in the other creators manage to find new & exciting ways to outshine me.

Nobody told me we were supposed to send Jason-centric art with our contracts. Motherfuckers.:surrend:

Horrible week, Tom. Horrible week.

I accidentally gave away hockey tickets to a complete stranger (and had to ask for them back), slept on the couch one night, had my new desk almost fall off the roof of my car (and had to have Robin come pick me up, in the snow, to see if the desk would fit in her car), cut a piece of my thumb off in my cooking class, had to sit through an excruciating three-hour long business writing class, got slammed at the day job...

...but the envelope cheered me up a bit. And tomorrow's Friday!

Oh, Tony, you gave me plenty to smile about. And I'll be talking all about it in my next installment of "Get to Know..." (http://blog.myspace.com/allyouleave)

I'm excited. Been reading them. Been digging them a lot. So far my favorite POSTCARDS behind the scenes. Like a non scene specific director's commentary.

Beland would be a great guy to take over for Mckeever.
Probably the best possible choice.

That white label with the barcode will peel off very easily, with no harm or residue to the envelope.

I was going to include a little something with my POSTCARDS envelope but my wife told me that could be construed as "sexual harrasment."

And for my two cents, Beland would rock post-McKeever. But if his schedule gets too crazy at Marvel I'm taking over TSSTG.

Would you settle for the webcomic (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/joshfialkov/fialkovadventures/series.php)? It's free for a week (along with Josh and Noel's Three Rivers (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/joshfialkov/comingsoon/series.php)).

It's an odd tale - one where Josh makes out with a girl at a con that looks like my girlfriend, has to rescue her after thugs kidnap her, gets captured, rescued by a crab that has my head...

...and that's just the first 12 pages.

Three Rivers is good too, or something. Something about it being the creative follow-up to their critically acclaimed Elk's Run (coming out in March from the largest publisher in America). I don't know, something like that.

It's science fiction?
