This past week I've been working on an essay for an upcoming Smart Pop Superman anthology. The essay will be good, once it's finished. I decided to take a short break, and post my "best of" for this past year. This year has been exciting. Kennedy is getting older, turning into a little person, which is amazing. Melissa has been working hard as co-manager at the Fast Forward online shop. Every year, our relationship grows stronger and more meaningful. She's my best friend, and I know I'm fortunate to have such a great family. 2005 also marked the year that my first comic book series was published. In the process, I've met some incredibly talented people. There's so much I want to do in 2006. We'll see where it all leads. (click here to read last year's best of)
