I have been a cartoonist since 1976. Very rarely have I gotten threats which is surprising if you think about it, given my criticisms of the GOP. Recently I got a strange email from my website contact form which read, "Hello. and Bye." I thought it was rather odd, so I traced the IP address, which is something I didn't know I could do until I tried. The address was 22.214.171.124. Here is where it lead me. (image) Some nazi from the fatherland? A trump lover? Do they have a network of US nazis they will contact to sick on me? We live in uncertain times thanks to the trumps. We will, as always, beat these fake humans back into the shadows where they belong just as my Grandfather did at the Battle of the bulge. Americans (real ones) will always win out over evil.
Today starts the rerun of the poem written by my Dad and illustrated by me. It will run up to Xmas day. I'm so glad I finally got to do this when I did because two years later he is no longer with us. One day I hope to do a more detailed version for a possible kid's book. I know he would have liked to see that but he did get to see this initial effort. This one's for you Pops!
An Irish Night Before Christmas by Richard Collins and Dan Collins
Hey all! I have a new ebook out of my comic strip on #gocomics for all your iDevices. iBooks Author is a great tool for creating fixed layout ebooks. I've heard Apple is looking into expanding their market share in the coming years so as to compete with the Kindle giant. I never liked working with Amazon, they take too much and give too little for independent publishers. Only $3.99! A great last minute gift for all your loved iOnes!
Dan Collins, American cartoonist and all around funny guy.
