And Then There Are Moments…

…when the stars come into alignment or something, and even though your car is falling apart and your body is falling apart and some of your best friends’ lives are falling apart…everything comes together on a project *exactly* the way you always knew it should.

In the end, human calamity is a small price to pay for Art.

I’ll explain all this in the next couple of days, when I can finally surface for more than a few seconds.

    I’m sorry,
    I know that Howard the Duck is long gone, but given the state of insanity our world is now in, Howard is needed now more than ever. I don’t care if his name is Leonard, I’d pay a tidy sum to read an original, scathing Duck story.
    Maybe gone, but not forgotten…..

    It sounds like you’re happy with the way Fate’s coming along. Can’t wait to read it…

    Well things falling together creatively is always the coolest feeling in the world. I work on a lot of Newspaper advertising…and when a piece just comes together after a long struggle…BOYAAAH!

    You know, in the, what, 15? 20? years I’ve known you, that’s the most positive remark I’ve ever seen you make. Hey, it looks good on you.

    Steve, in a former entry you wrote:
    (One heck of a leap for an inveterate wag who considers nothing sacred.)

    I would have never thought of you in this terms as I have been reading many of your stories along the years.
    With a great deal of your works you gave me so much that I could have hardly conceived you in the image you sketched here. Omega, The Defenders, and your Son of Satan remain among the most authentic Marvel stories I carry within me. Not to mention the story “A night too cold to die”, which I read as an adult.
    When I read first the Omega tales I was probably about James-Michael’s age. These, and others, touched very deep zones within me.
    Maybe you could reconsider what remains “sacred” for you, Steve. 🙂

    Said this, I would like to read that Zauriel story. And your new work I see you are doing on Doctor Fate.

    I strongly hope your personal problems are going better.
