I'm re-reading through the archives, focusing on your comments, and just read the Apr 26 2011 comic where you mention "The Flight of Dragons". Upon reading the wiki summary I kept recognizing names, and looked further into it. That movie was definitely (loosely) based on a series by Gordon R. Dickson called "The Dragon Knight". If you've never read it, its an awesome series.

thanks for the favorite on… It means a lot.
Ever thought about drawing this into a MTG comic?

Duel Decks Divine vs Demonic.…
I just saw the sketchbook for today and now I can't get how cute Ashley!Susan (Susan-Ashley? The one who's actually Susan but has Ashley's body and hair type!) looks out of my mind! She's really cute! Does this mean that I think Ashley would look uber-cute with her hair down? Or is it just a side-effect of her standing next to Susan-heighted Ashley in high-heels?
Hello, Dan.
Your email EGS link doesn't work for me, either.
I've been been following your comic for years, and the evolution of your skill as an artist- your trademark clean lines, shading and layout- is impressive. Please keep it up!
Your pages for Jan 10 and 13 are the best that I can remember for facial expressions/reactions.
Your ability to create a fantasy world that includes believable, real-world interactions between the characters is very rare in comics today. It is easy to identify with your people and their reactions to events in their lives, Sort of a "Yeah, I've been there" thing. Thanks for reminding me of so many clumsy things that I did and felt when I was a teen!
