So. Howdy. How are you all doing? It’s been quite a while. I’ll be honest, I’ve been having a hard time writing this blog post. I’ve kind of been avoiding it, and I’m not sure why. At first it was because I was intent on doing a bunch of research on the comics I wanted… Continue reading A Little Bit of Honesty
