I found out late last week that "Urgent Request," the last story in The Eternal Smile
, was nominated for an Eisner
! I have to tell you, I'm extremely proud of that story. Derek
did an such a phenomenal job on everything, from the layouts to the pacing to the watercolors in the Nigeria sequence. I haven't checked out the other nominated short stories yet, but I'm especially excited about reading Nick Bertozzi's.

Thanks, Aramis, for your kind words. The Eternal Smile was a real pleasure for me to do, and not just because Derek did the really hard parts. I'm glad you liked it!
Hi, I just wanted you to know that I read The Eternal Smile over the lunch hour of what was shaping up to be a spectacularly terrible day in ever way and it turned my entire world view around. Thanks for to you and Derek for creating one of those works of true art that in some small way remind us the world is a place of rare and precious beauty.
Many thanks and much love,
Aramis J. Troche
