I've gotten relatively little sleep over the last few nights because I've been hacking away at a piece I'm still not happy with, so this'll be brief so I can go rest a bit. But I was on my way back from St. Mark's Comics with a bag including Alias, New X-Men, Love & Rockets and a bunch of issues (excuse me, "progs") of 2000 A.D., and had my first I'm-getting-really-old thought of a certain kind: how nice it will be, I thought, in a few decades when I can retire and sit around rereading all my comics all day!

Drowning in work this week, but I was gasping for it last week, and probably will be again next week. Less than six weeks! The countdown is rolling!
