We’ve been busy. Really busy. Well, I’ve been busy. I don’t know about the other guys, but I feel like I’ve been running on empty for over a month. It started out in California. Then it headed out with me to Las Vegas, then it followed me home to New Jersey and held me hostage for two days while we moved out of one house and into another. Following that escapade, I got to sit down for 13 days and work on issue 55. Somewhere in the middle of all that, there was a few plane rides, a few train rides, one bike ride across the German border into Poland, and a complete viewing of ‘My Name is Earl: Season One.’ When all was said and done, there was a one full issue of Dig done, full of interviews, interesting spots and a smattering of humor thanks to the Sent Items page and Sandy Carson’s captions. Here’s the long and short of it before we get back to work on Issue 56.
