Thanks, Fella, much appreciated.
For me, it was never really about "winning" don't get me wrong finally seeing one of my stories published (other than Self-published) would have been lovely, but i went in to this this year simply as an exercise to have the chance of writing someones else's characters...i just like making comics, for me that's enough.
But i can read between the lines there, @garjones wink wink "blame Jim" wink wink
If i was a sweaty guy like Edison, i'd use that excuse too!
Incredibly kind of you to say, thank you!
