PDF of first 18 pages plus a lame cover

One of the things that has distracted me from working on new pages recently was the announcement at the San Diego Comic Con by TriggerStreet and Devil's Due of a new comics section and contest on the website. is a site for aspiring writers to get feedback and exposure in the Hollywood entertainment community. Well, there's a lot more to it than that, but you can go and check it out yourself. Anyway, they recently added a section for comics and the top 10, as selected based on user reviews, will be looked at for possible publication by Devil's Due and maybe even a motion picture.

Long shot, yes, but I felt I couldn't pass it by. So if anyone would like, there is a downloadable PDF, in higher resolution than you get on the comic's website, available in's comic section. You do have to register with TS, and it is more involved than most site registrations but it is free. If you like to read, there are tons of plays, screenplays, short stories, etc. there for reading and reviewing. If you do go there, please write a review. Not mandatory but appreciated.

Oh boy, what have I gotten myself into?

Alright, so I'm really, really bad about keeping this baby updated. I'm sorry to say that problem probably won't be remedied anytime soon. I seem to have overextended myself with obligations and projects.
Regrettably, I may have to take a break from the comics for a week or so. I am scrambling to avoid this, but my schedule is very tight at the moment and I really need to attend to my other lives before they collapse.
The biggest unknown is just how much time I must spend finishing up my midlife crisis. You see, rather than purchase a sports car or go on a sexual assertiveness spree, I've opted for the far more expensive pathway of returning to college to pursue a biology degree.
Oh, yes, WAY more costly than a sports car. There was considerable self-debate over priorities this semester, but I know I would regret dropping out of university, even though the practical applications of the degree are sure to be very limited.

This does not mean that 'The Sergeant and Professor Skeary Winslow' will be abandoned. I have 180 pages in mind for this first graphic novel, and am determined to get them out there. I'm just saying that there may be a brief break while I get myself reorganized and address some other obligations.
