“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Eric's still out. But in speaking with him today I asked him if his blog was going to suffer because of his absence? He says, "Nah...I'll upload stuff later on."

Then in looking at all of his posts in the past, it came to our attention that he has never posted more than 14 images in a single month. And even then, the month that had 14 posts in it included his Marvel Masterpieces cards and I told him those didn't count. I just think that the guy is slackin'.

"You know, I think I can put up an image a day for 30 days," he boasts.

"Horsesh*t," I say with conviction.

"Okay, I bet you that I do one image a day for the month of December totaling 31 images at the end of the month, even if I have to do a couple retroactively during the month to catch up on busier days. For every day I miss, I owe you $10," says the rube.


"Yeah...serious. But if I do, when I get back, you're cleaning my car....or something"

"It's Wednesday, December 5th already....ZERO images, you already owe me $50!"

"No, no...remember the rules: I can do those retroactively," he explains.

"Cheap and cheating bastard. You're *still* out of your mind...okay! Bet!"

So, to summarize:

If E is is not jockeying his desk, getting sh*t done....

...and if instead he's....oh, I dunno, let's say hypothetically...at the "Happiest Place on Earth" (TM and (c) Disney) hanging out with our buds instead...

...then I'm gonna have me some serious X-Mas cizzash! Actual monies not shown here, that wouldn't be classy...and because I don't have it yet.

Let's see if Mr. Incognito can get 7 images done by the end of the week. This is gonna be easy. I'm gonna take my winnings and get me "Rock Band" for the XBOX 360... make Eric sing "Wanted"! Merry f*ckin' X-Mas to me! Whoo-hoo!

Hey man, I noticed a hugh loop hole in that bet. There's nothing that requires the images to either be a) new ones never before posted on his blog or b) images that he himself has done, though to be fair that the images be his never before posted work should be implied from the context of the bet.

That said my crystal ball sees Eric fevorishly posting 30 never before posted panels from Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin on New Years Eve with one hand while using the other to point out to you where the bucket and sponge are for that car wash.
