All of which leads to one of the coolest presents ever, because Tom commissioned a sketch of me to put in my Bully's Sketchbook. It's by comics artist Michael Dialynas, the co-creator and artist of Amala's Blade, now starting publication (the #0 ish just came out from Dark Horse and it's incredibly beautiful and fun)! Tom asked Michael for "a caricature of Bully in the style of Jack Kirby as a superhero or villain." And here's what I was delighted to receive:
THIS. IS. FANTASTIC.
Thank you, Tom, and thank you, Michael, for the most cosmic portrayal ever of a little stuffed bull! I shall be eating it later.
