I’m completely wiped out from an amazing Thanksgiving dinner with my family. I’m so thankful for my awesome sisters and parents, my *incredible* girlfriend, my perfect son, and you.
And I’m thankful I get to be me. It wasn’t always this fun or fulfilling, but it truly has been, this year. Thanks so much to every single one of you who lets me feel special for reminding you of how truly special you are.
You’re the only you we are ever going to get, and I’m so very grateful that you’re here with us.
To everyone who has read or shared my “secret origin” story…
I love you guys. Thank you for sharing your stories with me, publicly or privately. I’m heartbroken that so many of us have faced crimes no one, especially children, should ever be confronted with, but I’m proud of all of you for finding a way through the darkness, whatever that path was (or still is).
Anyone close to me would tell you I’m typically bright and silly and upbeat, but there’s always going to be the underlying anger that these crimes still happen. The only thing we can do is be our best selves for the sake of those around us. I’ve been all over the world and seen things that made the horrors of my own life seem small, and while every cut leaves its mark, it’s our inner lives where the shards continue to rend. Pulling them out is the only way to recover. Telling my story helped me do that. I hope sharing your stories with me has helped you in that same way.
As children, we feared the dark, but the emotional darkness in the world is made and remade by people. Well we’re people, too, but we’re going to shine our signals until the darkness fears us. Thank you for sharing my story and helping to spread the light.
Shine bright, new chums.

Just 12 Days left to help make this CRAZY RAD all-ages comic from me, Scott Fogg, Marc Thomas, and Vito Delsante a reality! It’s too fun to not happen, guys!
Check out the donor rewards, and please contribute WHATEVER YOU CAN so we can tell this story. If one fourth of my Tumblr followers gave one dollar each, we’d be funded and could make this comic for everyone.
It’s Doctor Who meets Fantastic Four, with gorgeous art and a heart-warming message for everyone about finding your place in the universe and doing your best.
SCIENCE! FRIENDSHIP! HOPE! GO!
Phileas Reid Knows We Are Not Alone: The Prologue (So Far)
These are the first five pages of our book. The finished product will be in color and Page 1 will be very, very different (it contains massive spoilers and so is not fit for human eyes at this time).
We’re just about halfway through our Kickstarter to fund this graphic novel. It’s a story I’ve been working on for almost two years now and to finally see these characters coming to life is such a big, big thrill.
If you haven’t checked out our Kickstarter yet, do it now. The GIF sets of Tom Hiddleston will still be here when you get back. Promise.
This comic is going to be so, so cool, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. Funding this Kickstarter means we get to make it and you get to read it. It’s win/win, old chums.
