Where to begin?
First, an apology. I am deeply sorry for not touching base with you and simply “vanishing.” You deserve better than that and I am ashamed of my behavior. It was wrong. I don’t have any excuses in that regard. I want to apologize for letting you down, making you feel abandoned, worrying you, and/or hurting you in any way. It hurts me deeply to know that I have hurt you. Again, I am so, so very sorry.
With that said, I would like to hopefully shed some light about what has been going on behind the scenes.
I have been unwell for quite some time. Early this year, I had to undergo lifesaving surgery. I am currently in the process of an arduous recovery. It’s been a difficult time for me and my family for a number of reasons. I feel incredibly grateful to have another chance at life, and so deeply grateful for my family who have unconditional love for me and have been very supportive through thick and thin. I know how much that means and how so many people don’t have that. It’s an enormous ‘sin’ that anyone should suffer alone if you ask me. If I didn’t have them, there would be no comics…and I probably wouldn’t be here talking to you now. (1/2)
