    No joke, I was just thinking about where the heck issue 8 was (why can't I pick the winning lottery numbers?)

    This is the Joe Casey I remember: swagger, lunacy a bit of raunch and painfully honest. I'm not looking for anything deep in Butcher Baker, just a really O.T.T. good time.

    This series is the reason I continue to buy new books from Image. I bought it on a whim and loved it instantly. It's great to see it back. I love the feeling of reading a comicbook and thinking, "oh man, am I really reading this? This is so good. I need more."

    Not to take a personal conflict public (although Joe wasn't shy about giving his opinion via interview), but for the record: "overcommitment" was not the issue with Butcher's schedule. As much as I love Butcher Baker it was a project that just didn't make enough money for me to live on. I took other work to keep the lights on and continued to work on Butcher when I could. I've apologized to fans and to Joe for the delay.

    When I initially read that part of the interview, I didn't take it as Joe ripping you...although now that you bring it up, I can see how him being so frank may have unintentionally painted you in a poor light. Whatever the reasons for the delay, I will happily lap up issue 8 tomorrow and enjoy your wonderful art.

    Just keep up the great work, you're doing amazing. From my years of being a fan of creator owned books, I know of the craziness of trying to make bread as a creator and needed other means to support yourself while trying to churn out a book like this. I can speak for me and I'm sure a few understanding readers that we're behind you.

    I love The Strain. Hopefully he'll continue on that book til Del Toro finishes the novels.

    This. However long it takes, the wait for such fine art is worth it. Psyched for tomorrow.

    Just picked up and read my issue today. Loved it. Hope Bleeding Cool is wrong and this series continues forever.
