Feedom has never been free ... I love my children and I love my wife with all my heart. And I would die, die gladly, if that would make a better life for them.

Jhonen Vasquez: I don't...

I don't particularly dislike any kind of person that might be reading my stuff. They like it and that's cool, but I don't do the work for any kind of group in particular, except for hobos, who just plain kick ass and light up my life.
