And, definitely not the last of it this month — trust me. If you’re email address happens to be in my Outlook address book you’ll probably be getting a similar email — or if you’re a friend of mine on MySpace.com, Facebook, or ComicSpace, you’ll probably be receiving a message that reads a lot like what you’re about to read below. I’ve got to really push to get Skullgoyle votes this month because the competition is insane.
Alright. If you’re familiar with www.zuda.com, and you knew that I had a web comic in the running for October’s competition, then you knew that a pitch like this was inevitable.
Oh, wait… Hey! How you doin’? What’s new? Hope all is well with you. How about this weather? And the economy — what’s up with that?
Okay, back to the pitch.
Skullgoyle, written by yours truly, with art by Daniel Thollin, is currently in the midst of a tough as hell competition to decide the favorite web comic presented by Zuda for the month of October.
Cutting to the chase… I need your vote. This may very well be the toughest month of completion that Zuda has ever sponsored and our Skullgoyle is right in the thick of it. If you could sign on (register and then sign on if you’re already not a member) and cast your vote in Skullgoyle‘s direction I would be most appreciative — probably enough to buy you a drink, watch your kid, vouch for you to your significant other for any reason what-so-ever, send you a Christmas card this season, not bore you with my attending the first Lollapalooza story ever again, actually buy your next comic book that is published and not just say that I will (if you have comic being published), visit your blog (if you have one of those also) on a regular basis, be your best friend, and/or vote for your web comic when it’s in the running on Zuda.com.
So, if you could do me the huge favor of voting for Skullgoyle I’ll owe you a solid. If you could do even the huger (that’s a word now) of spreading the word and convincing (or bribing) your friends and family to vote for Skullgoyle I’ll owe you a solid with the density of granite.

After my Angels losing to the Red Sox in the ALDS, my comic book being cancelled, and having to suck it up and go back to a regular Monday thru Friday 8 to 5 desk jockey job — my cat, Quint could use some cheering up.
So, if you have any questions — or just want to talk about our feelings (I’m here for you, man) — feel free to hit me back. Help me make my Mom proud. (My dad will still never read it.) I appreciate your support.
