Well, we should have all known this day was coming. Once I finally release the second part of Annual #2, the series will officially be over.
I know, it's a sad thing to end the series, but I have a few reasons behind it.
- The first issue is that I really dislike some of the choices I made with the characters for Emerald.

--Not Jack Kirby I draw so much for you guys.
So. I just learned today that my grandmother has Stage 3 ovarian cancer, and has six months to live. I don't know what else to say, but to say that I finally understand what love is: commitment, bravery, and faith.
It's a funny thing. My grandpa kissed my grandma twice and told her to "Take that to the bank." He's a funny guy.
But I watched them talk. I could see my grandpa and grandmother have a look in their eyes. They both saw fate, and yet they held hands and worked together to approach that fate. Somehow, something I've rarely seen happened: despite my grandmother being less aware and having dementia, she smiled. Her smile stretched farther than a rainbow across the sky.
It was like I could see past her frail old self and see some type o…
Pretty late, but for me it's still the 4th of July, so we need to celebrate it accordingly! What better way than to see Captain America punch Hitler in the face?

Hope you all have a wonderful Independance Day!
