Thanks for some nice encouraging messages from many of you about these little journal entries.
Since the first FIRST SECOND books don't actually release until April 2006, I'm waiting to post more about them, like sketches and such from the authors -- it's just a little early now. I can't wait to share the stuff. Right now, the books are in final proofs, and I'm dealing with a million little details on that front.
So right now, this site and this blog are gently warming up to a full head of steam in coming months. In the meantime, for you, friend, here are little bits to tide you over until then.
The journal entries below (and the ones following, in coming days) happened in March 05. The cat soldier belongs to another project of mine, but the fortune cookie writer just wandered in here one morning, and he's reappeared a few times since.
