Um, that's it really. Thanks to Brian Hibbs for his patience and just, you know, giving me a place to talk about comics for another year. I appreciate it even though I never say so. That's just because I'm an ungrateful ****. It's been a tough year for The Savage Critics what with us losing Graeme & Jeff, who have lit out for the territories and are, even as we speak, reaping the rewards they so richly deserve. God, how the envy consumes me. J Smitty went AWOL, due, I believe, to the demands of building a business and generally providing for his family like a responsible dude. Since this means I now will never find out what happens in ARMAGEDDON 2001 I can't help but doubt his priorities, but I'm sure we all wish him well. Brian Hibbs got another comics shop because he feeds on stress, and he will return to reviewing soon(ish) I'm sure. And Abhay. Always Abhay. Always and forever Abhay. Animator. Lawyer. Lover. Artist. Author. Gamer. God in mortal form. Abhay. Always Abhay.The wind cries Abhay. But above all there is you. Well, you and COMICS!!!

Happy new year! I hope 2015 is kind to you all.
