It’s been a year since my very first holiday comic and Ninja and Pirate has improved by leaps and bounds since then. It’s crazy looking back at some of my old comics and especially the VERY old High School days comics. I am so grateful for everything I have. I am so lucky. I have a wonderful WACOM tablet courtesy of my parent’s generosity (it was a graduation gift), I have received a college education in sequential art, I have the time to make this comic for you all, I have a lovely wonderful wife without whom I couldn’t get through a day on my own, I have a dumb butt of a dog that I love unconditionally, I have a family that cares for me and wants to see me succeed in my artwork (both immediate and inlaws), I have some of the coolest and supportive webcomic buds a guy could ask for, and lastly I have you- the readers and fans of Ninja and Pirate. Without all of you checking in every Wednesday and Saturday and enjoying the goofy giggle strip and story I’ve put out there I wouldn’t be able to keep doing this. I’m so grateful for everything and everyone in my life. I have so much to be grateful for. You are all wonderful people and I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving. I was just gonna do a single panel comic for today but as I was working on it I thought of how lucky I was that you all come to read this comic and that many if not most of you enjoy it too. I figured what the hey, I’ll stay up late to do a total comic for you guys. That’s eight panels of fully-rendered appreciation folks. I couldn’t and wouldn’t do this without all your support. Thank you. Thank you all for investing the time and effort in taking a minute out of your day to chuckle at my weirdness. I appreciate it more than I could ever tell you all. You are amazing and I love all of my readers. Thank you.

I am so very thankful for everything I have.

That being said, get out of my way! I have a Black Friday sale to get to because I NEED MORE THINGS AND STUFF!!
