Things I'm Thankful For

  • Having a great and loving family, in particular a couple of incredibly supportive women: namely my wife Kelly and my mother Betty.
  • That I actually get paid to write comic books (Trust me, every time I get a check in the mail, I still can't believe it).
  • All the support I've gotten from writers like Ed Brubaker, Brian K. Vaughan, Brian Wood, Garth Ennis and Andy Diggle, retailers like Adam Mix of Daydreams Comics in Iowa City and William Binderup of Elite Comics here in Kansas City, and from other great people like Vaneta Rogers of Newsarama and Chris Neseman from the Around Comics podcast.
  • My best friend, Jon Falkner, who's the proud father of a beautiful new baby girl.
  • My late cousin, Gustav Hasford, the greatest writer I've ever known, and his friends and fellow vets of the First Marine Division ISO Snuffies.
  • Editor Will Dennis of Vertigo, without whom I wouldn't have a writing career.
  • Artist R.M. Guéra, my always passionate, always creative partner in crime.
  • The other amazing artists and editors I've been fortunate enough to work with over the last year, in particular editor Axel Alonso of Marvel, and artists Cameron Stewart and Jock.
  • The NFL Sunday Ticket on Directv (I don't know where I'd be without it).
  • My laptop, AKA "My Office."
  • My DC comp box.
  • That President Bush is a lame duck.
  • Getting to sleep late on the weekends.
  • Being born a Southerner.
  • Living in a city with great BBQ.
  • Bruce Springsteen.
  • You. Thanks for reading.

Here's to that list, and to you, and to an even better 2008!

Aww, shucks. You shouldn't have. I'm disappointed to not see Corey Lyon and your illegitimate child get a mention though. That kid probably has a hefty auto insurance bill that you could be helping out with.

Nice to see you're still thankful for Dubya, lol.
