I was nominated to do this challenge by Mark Stokes and was happy to step up to help raise awareness for this worthy cause. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a noncontagious, degenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. A chronic disorder, it causes a loss of control of voluntary muscles, also affecting the nerves that control speech, swallowing, and limb movements. A cure has not yet been found. You can find out more at the ALS website.
I created this in memory of my late grandpa, Ralph Crawford, who was a victim of this disease.
The first Vinnie the Vampire comic collection is available through Create Space! It is full color, with the exception of my original black and white comics. It contains my first two years of strips, that’s over two hundred comics, and has seventy eight pages. The title is “Let the Bloodbath Begin”! A special thanks goes out to Mark Stokes for writing the epic foreward to the book. Check out his great comic at www.zombieboycomics.com. Below you’ll find the full cover design (click on the image for an enlarged view). I hope you add it to your coffee table or book shelf! You can find it at this link: https://www.createspace.com/4900771 Thanks for your support!
Pat McCuen is the cartoonist behind the comic “The Devil and Mr. Gandhi.” When he recently contacted me and asked if he could have Sunny guest star in his comic I was thrilled! I love seeing how others interpret my characters and you can see her and Vinnie in his comic titled “The Rescue” by clicking the image below. While you’re there, stick around and check out his comic archives!
You can also find a lot of great content at Pat’s other site. www.inkpuddle.com

Starting next week I’ll be pulling back a little to allow myself some extra time for other things. I’ll start posting two comics a week instead of three, my new posting days will be Monday and Thursday. I would like some time to begin research for a VTV book, I hope to build a buffer and I would like to plan some convention appearances to promote the comic. I have several ideas for fundraising these projects and I’ll keep you all posted on my progress. Thank you guys for your support and I hope you’ll keep reading the comic!
