Page 120, AKA The Last Page!

And that's all she wrote! I should have the print edition off to the presses later this week (hopefully), so watch this space regarding its release. This is crazy. Creating this comic has been such a huge part of my life for so many years--I first came up with the idea around 2002 or 2003, wrote the script throughout 2008-2009, and added the final touches to this last page just a few days ago. That's a whole lotta evenings and weekends. I couldn't have done it without encouragement and input from folks like Alex Kennedy, James White, Sean Jordan, Mike Holmes, Samantha Robertson, Ben Jeddrie, and, of course, Calum Johnston. I would also be remiss if I left out all my Strange Adventures co-workers over the past few years--Tiina Johns, Rachelle Goguen, Jay Aaron Roy, Nathan Boone, Kate Leth, Shawn MacLeod, and Natalie Lavoie, all of whom had to endure my fussing and fretting over this project (often while I was supposed to be working). Thanks also to my Mom and Dad for always encouraging me to make comics for as far back as I can remember. Extra super duper thanks to my girlfriend Hillary Titley for putting up with my marathon drawing/colouring sessions, as well as listening patiently while I jabbered on about fictional pro wrestlers. If this was the Oscars, the "Play 'Em Off" music would have started several minutes ago, so I'll cut it off here. But final thanks go to YOU for checking out SLAM-A-RAMA! Remember, the print editions of #1-4 are available now at Strange Adventures, and the fifth and final installment is on its way within a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
