When I was just starting out with The Amok Bros., I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. Pat McCuen, the man behind the fantastic “The Devil and Mr. Gandhi” comic as well as several other enterprises. Nothing could have been more encouraging to me, as a fledgeling cartoon-maker, to have received this from Mr. McCuen upon making the meager purchase of his comic:


And, some time later, his comic challenged my comic to the comic-based permutation of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and I was honored to accept and subject my characters to a fate most frosty. And, of course, to contribute to MDA in their name.

I still haven’t managed to work “Presto!” into the comic, but that day will come. Also, I need a case of Amoktillado.
