I got a 200 dollar credit for my drawing time on Free Comics day. Marty, it's a 7 oclock. You got a 100 dollar book you want? I'll buy it for you. (Marty is always sending me great stuff. I owe him him 1000 bucks minimum.)

The indignity of becoming a smear on the wall. Hit by the same blast in the street and waking up on the 4th floor of a building.
