Bloodlines – Epilogue
Gabrielle glances up from her reading. “Jess, please, can you sit down? You`re making Stitch nervous.”
The river ghoul yells at the redhead from his wading pool in front of the fireplace.
The witch stalks back from the open door to the library. “He said he`d be here at eight,” Jessica grumbles, dropping down in the chair across from Gabby`s, her palms slightly damp believe it or not.

Interview with Writer, Comic Creator, Publisher and Letterist, David Paul. David is also the co-founder of Ugli Studios Presents, a creator-owned fantasy/horror/sci-fi anthology book.
1. Now my first question of the day is, how long have you been reading comics? And what got you into them originally?
DP: Been reading comics all my life since I was a child. Some periods in life I was more dedicated to the hobby than others. But I actually got into comics first through what were known as illustrated magazines with titles like Savage Sword of Conan, Vampirella, and the very first comics magazine I ever lusted for – Heavy Metal! Yeah, I was way too young to be reading those magazines. Especially HM.
2. Heh, at least it helped stimulate the imagination! As you are a writer, what inspired you to begin writing?
DP: Inspiration comes from everywhere. I believe certain types of creators are born to do exactly what it is they must. There is no choice. I’m not sure if that answers the question very clearly but I can tell you that my favorite book as a child was “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats. I’m sure in some way that book influenced me to write.

So I'm going to be running a thing now (possibly throughout this month, but maybe shorter depending on timing and how many requests) called "ironhand, draw me..."
Basically, you guys, anyone, can ask me to draw whatever you want and I will do it! But it has to be during this month (again, or earlier, I will announce when it has ended). So yeah, ask me to draw whatever you want and I'll draw and ink it for you and post it up on here. Try to refrain yourselves from asking me to draw something insanely hard, I am only human after all, but do challenge me if you want You can ask more than once as well and I'll try to get around to it!
Get requesting guys, you can ask me anywhere! Don't miss out!

Isabella smiled while she approached the kitchen table and focused on brownies in a large pan. She remembered baking chocolate earlier that day before she took a square. She continued to smile as she tasted it. The brownie was moist, chewy, tasty, etc. Isabella's eyes were huge with surprise the minute arms wrapped around her waist from behind. She turned her head and saw Craig.
I am so excited about this poster! It really captures the three guys perfectly. Since this is their poster, I thought it would only be fitting to let them see it and try to capture their reactions. Since they're now trudging across the heartland of the US, this was done via the phone I had given them over the holiday season. What we have here then is a transcript of sorts. I hope I captured the dialog in it entirety but since things were flying pretty fast, there may be a gap or two. So, let's see that the Sons and their travelling companions think of their poster shall we?

Kevin McDermott stood by the doorway and scowled at Bridget who happened to be his younger sister. His eyes were on her as she sat by the fireplace. *I was meant to inherit our parents' money and home, but me sibling got everything because I purchased nothing but alcohol before some illness killed our mother and father. I will obtain what is rightfully mine if Bridget dies* he thought. The 36-year-old man glowered until he remembered something. That was when a cruel smile appeared on his face.
