NICKELODEOFF.

I am super-bummed that the plug has been pulled on Nickelodeon Magazine. I don't remember what I ate for lunch today, but I recall every single detail - where I was, who I was with, what I was wearing, what was going on - when I got the word that NickMag was publishing one of my comics. That was almost five years ago, and it is one of the top highlights of my career. It has indirectly opened up a lot of doors for me. Who are you? Pfffft. Wait, what? You're in Nickelodeon? Come on in, sir!

The staff at the magazine is awesome. Chris Duffy and Dave Roman are saints of the comics world, as they have showcased work from loads of crazy good artists in a really cool way - in a magazine for kids. Some of the filthiest, most perverted comic artists in history have done kids' comics for NickMag, and that is too cool. Artists I admire and look up. A lot of great names... and me. Why? WHY? Boy, did I have those guys fooled.

Anyway, the magazine will have issues until October (I think), and I have a comic in the July issue, which should be on stands now. It's my favorite comic I've done for them... and it's the last.

I'm so happy to have been a part of something that I grew up on. NICKELODEON, SON! What a dream come true for a good ol' boy from West Texas.
