It would be difficult to find a happier group of people. This is the scene (captured by my wife to be) just after the Eisners ceremony. It was the best possible ending to a fabulous vacation filled with friends and family.

From getting personal tours of ILM (thanks, Sam!) and Airbnb (Thanks, Joe!) to staying in a lovely home in Sea Ranch (thanks, Carly!) to a multi-day Indian wedding with more choreographed dance numbers than a Broadway show (congrats Neha and Vish!) to a private wine tasting in Napa straight from the barrel (thanks Jeff!), this was a vacation for the record books. And to top it all off, I got to see some great shows: Daniel Clowes at the Oakland Museum of California, and Avengers Assemble! (among many others) at the Cartoon Art Museum. If you're in the area, they are must-see exhibitions.

Of course, a huge thanks goes out to the Daredevil team (wish everyone could have been there!) and all the readers who have supported the book. It's an honor and a privilege to be part of such an amazing team. In my 2 chances to mention them, I forgot to thank the formidable lineage of creators who preceded us on Daredevil, specifically Gene Colan and David Mazzucchelli, whose grace and style shines through every pose I've ever drawn of the Man Without Fear.

And last but not least, Thanos.
