A Coupla Thank-Yous

Two different web sites have been kind enough to call attention this week to my continued existence and ongoing activities.

First came the mention by Richard Krauss of my Cruse Art Newsletter in last Saturday’s edition of MidnightFiction, Richard’s very interesting weekly round-up of webcomics and comics-related news and interviews.

Then word arrived in my email inbox yesterday that an anniversary had snuck up on me, one that led Thomas Heald to mention me in his Yahoo-group site callede Pridelets, an ongoing compendium of moments that Thomas finds worth noting in LGBT history.

Yes, the alert Mr. Heald has graciously informed his Pridelets readers that the 1983 issue of The Advocate bearing yesterday (January 20) as its cover date marked the very first appearance of my comic strip Wendel, snuggled as it was amid the classified sex ads, popper plugs and penis-enlargement come-ons of the magazine’s long-gone but (at least among the dissolute in our ranks) fondly remembered "Pink Pages."
(You can find that first installment on my web site, by the way, if you’re curious to see my online adaptation of the Strawhead’s debut appearance in print. But first a warning for the faint-of-heart and/or underaged, though: the strip is raunchy, kinky, and you can see Wendel’s pubes.)

Many thanks for remembering me, guys.
