Many of you may remember our old colleague Ruben Miranda (he of Comic Guys videos infamy). He’s a fine fellow.
Unfortunately one of Ruben’s closest family members, his godson/nephew Manny, tragically passed away in a car accident this past weekend. Ruben spoke of him often and with love. It’s incredibly difficult for me to imagine what he and his family are going through right now.
Of course, this came as a surprise to people not prepared for such a young death in the family and, as such, they’ve posted a GoFundMe campaign to help with his funeral expenses. I humbly implore you, especially those customers in the FP community whom Ruben introduced to the wonders of his favorite comics and graphic novels, to donate even a couple of bucks if you can.
Make sure to get here on Wednesday and pick up a copy of the Madman All-New Giant-Size Super Ginchy Special!
You don’t know how happy I am that there is a new issue of Mike Allred’s Madman hitting shelves this week. I love Mike Allred! Hell I love all the Allreds.
I’m also excited to see Matt Kindt’s take on Madman which will be featured in this issue. I dug Kindt’s recent Sweet Tooth story, and Comic Guy Ruben Miranda has been talking about his graphic novel Revolver a lot lately.
Since we are on the subject of Ruben and Madman, check this out!
Cerebus + Madman = Something Ruben and Matt can both agree on.
