Just to update you, my loyal reader. I am presently working on a book on Emile Mercier's cartoons for the National Cartoon Gallery, Coffs Harbour. However, from 26 January to mid-February, I shall be enjoying an impromptu, unplanned holiday with Carlene. I won't be doing any comic-related work, answering emails, and I won't be able to fulfill any orders from this web-site until my return. My apologies for this inconvenience. Carlene says it's the first 'real' holiday she has had where life does not revolve around comics. I'm not quite sure this is true, but I shall be quiet and take her word for it.
