You can get it cheap nowadays. I reviewed it here: http://home.earthlink.net/~copaceticcomicsco/BoulevardofBroken.html

I would say that on balance I am a writer who draws and not the other way around and as an artist I am definitaly NOT what you would call a natural. Having said that though I think I do have my moments. But your specific criticism about the lack of range of facial expressions particularly my own character is, I think, entirely valid. My brother Simon, a valued and somewhat severe critic of my work said the same exact thing to me recently. I’m gonna work on that. Best to you, Kim

(That one kills me every time.)

I’m defintely getting both Shadowland as well as The Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Great, great stuff–thanks so much!

Thanks for the encouraging words about Alias the Cat. I’m sorry and embarrased about the mispelled words ,[God! did I just mispell embarrased?] It has indeed gone through more than one proof reader doing their best to cover my barely literate butt.
But moving to higher ground I’m glad I have somehow broken through to you. Check out last year’s Shadowland. You might enjoy that one as well. Anyway here’s hoping you do. It’s tricky business trying to entertain people and I do hope I’m getting better at it and improving my abilities at it over time; even spelling. You know I do take that part of it seriously and I’d like to think that I have progressed from piss poor to at least an average speller. Kim
