It's been a momentous and challenging year, harder for some, better for others, and unforgettable for all of us. As we come to the end of 2009 with festival and celebration, We'd like to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful, generous holiday, and a bountiful, safe Twenty-Ten.
And if its not too much trouble, and I don't come off as being preachy here, please spare some time in your day to reflect the plight of others in far worse shape than you. Giving to a local charity can make a huge difference in other's lives, whether you deem your contributions large or small, it all counts.

as you may know, Nocturnals approaches its 15th Anniversary this year. At this time, fifteen years ago, I was painting the first mini-series and struggling to hone my writing skills to create something unique in the comics marketplace. At that time, Hellboy was two months away from debuting, and there were no little girl characters in superhero comics. No books combining Lovecraft and Chandler (really!) or horror, crime and super-heroic flair all in one. There were no zombie gunfighters, no Halloween-themed characters, and no one had ever called a group or a book 'Nocturnals'.
