Greetings All.

I have come to the final conclusion that I have to retire this comic once and for all. It is not fair to you the reader, or the comic itself, to be on-again, off-again. With so many struggles in these past couple years, it is no surprise to me that I have to retire the comic officially. I am greatly saddened by this decision, and it does not come easy for me, but it is one that has to be made.

With the personal gains I had last year, I was more than ready to come back to this comic. But the moment this year started, nothing but trouble has haunted me. Some of my own doing, but mostly outside forces. I do suffer from depression, and I’m going to address that issue next. I have everyone else in my family set-up and healed, and now it’s the old fart’s turn to get myself on the road to mental and physical health.

I have always been an open person as it has served me well. I am also one to never say never.  “1977 the Comic” may see life again someday. More than likely not as a comic, but as an animation or live-action series. With my Broadcasting background, it would be a natural evolution of the comic to see some life in a form of animation or live-action series. I may be down, but never count me out.

See you all on the other side, and, I cannot express my gratitude for your patronage and readership with me over these past 7 years. It will not be forgotten.

And my final song of the day is from Santana’s 1978 album “Inner Secrets” and is one of the best rockers Santana ever recorded. And it states exactly my feelings toward you readers, and that you have always had an “Open Invitation’ to drop by for a little laugh and the occasional cleavage drawing. Rock on, man…
