Entry 87: Please Buy S.H.I.E.L.D. #1
I didn't want to have to do this but... Her name is Lucy Fitzgerald Weaver, she's 7 months, and, other than a nasty headbutt and an ability to latch onto hair and not let go, she is completely helpless. She's a baby who's only mistake is being born the daughter of a comic book artist. She's lost in an unforgiving world where one day is the same as the next. I know you've thought of getting one of her father's comics, put it on a nice to-do list of things to do that are nice, but somehow you never got around to it, even though the comic shop is right there. Maybe you forgot because you were picking your nose, maybe you're stupid, but Lucy doesn't have till the 12th of never or even the 23rd of soon. No, she has only to the first of now. When you buy S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 this Wednesday you'll know she has a school to go to. You'll know she has a doctor to see so she wont DIE like thousands of children did last night. Now I've got your attention. Do something wonderful, buy S.H.I.E.L.D. #1. It's the best thing that can happen to 3 dollars, 3 quarters, 2 dimes, and 4 pinnies. God knows they don't wan to be in your wallet against your ASS. Ever think about that.
Seriously, thanks to anyone who picks up anything that I do. I feel like sometimes I joke or try to play it cool when I've got something coming out, but honestly, it's amazing to me that anyone buys comics that I drew. I'm really grateful that I get to do this for a job.
