My apologies for this episode being a couple of days late. Norton security didn’t play well with my windows ten upgrade, but we are back in business.
I have to say thank you for all the well-wishes from listeners on facebook and twitter, as I’ve embarked into the world of brick and mortar comic book sales again. I don’t have the widest local net of support, so when I hear from people all across the freaking world, telling me to keep kicking ass, well, just know that I appreciate it and it means a ton to me.
But anyway, thanks for listening.
