Hey chums!
How goes it?
Thought I'd pop in and say hello.
I'm three weeks into this course now and it's wrecking me!
Intensive doesn't even begin to describe it.
Almost dropped after a week, but remembered that it had cost me three grand and thought better of it.
Anyway, I'm broke and tired and still gutted that I've had to cancel my standing order with Gosh!
Truth is I have neither the funds or time to be reading comics at the moment, but fuck my old boots I'm missing them.
Course ends in late January. Hopefully I'll get some work soon after and be able to resume my expensive comics habit.
Until then...

PS I seem to have been hit with a rush of spam posts in the comments section of late so I've decided to opt for the password protected comments from now on. Not something I want to do, but I'm a bit tired of all the meds and porn crap that keeps getting posted.

The very best of luck with what sounds like a considerable undertaking, Mr D. And, from a selfish point of view, the quicker you've earned your stripes, the faster you can get back to much-valued business of describing the marts and comic shops of olde London Town.

I'd just like to echo Colsmi's thoughts. Hang in there, you deserve your comics more than I do that's for sure. All the best..

Keep up the good work, you'll only miss Walking Dead, GL and Darwyn Cooke - any & all of which will be traded soon anyway! PS: You are on that course to learn the black arts of 'Slabbing', yeah?!

Hi Dom, shame you can't make this weekend's mart!

Oh well, hope to see you there again in 2011!
While I'm here, have you seen this? It's half of Alan Moore's script to 'The Killing Joke'. Worth having a read with the book close to hand if you get the chance...
