    I just started following your blog. Mainly because I couldn’t think of any good reason why I shouldn’t. And also because I saw the words New York somewhere up there. I won’t hold it against you that you actually live in Salt Lake City. Someone has to, and it might as well be you.


  15. mcgettigan says:

    I used to live in New York. I lived on Long Island for a while and then eventually moved into the city. I bought a road bike at a terrible and odd shop near Hicksville and the man who sold it to me said, “That’s a nice bike.” And then I road it around the park and someone road up next to me and said, “That’s a nice bike,” though his tone was more threatening. Anywhere I’d ride it someone would make that same comment to me. “That’s a nice bike.” I’ve ridden a lot since I’ve moved here and I haven’t gotten that line once. Which I think is a pretty good way to describe the differences between the two places.

    And that is the end of my random story.

    I agree, many New Yorker’s subscribe to a rather particular brand of madness one rarely encounters elsewhere. As Craig Anton once quipped, “I saw a license plate yesterday that said ‘I Miss New York,’ so I smashed their window and stole their radio.”

    For one, thank you sincerely for your attention on my post! However, when I saw your name, I had to check out a comics blog. I was not disappointed. I wish you luck in your goals of making a living off your creations: they elicited quite the chuckle out of me.

    John Leonard… I think we went to Mason Gross together. I had a random dream where you made a cameo and thought I would reach out. I’ve always been a huge fan of your drawings and works. Great to see that you never gave up on your dreams!


  32. mcgettigan says:

    Hanul, I hate to say it but you might be looking for a different John Leonard. I didn’t go to Mason Gross! Sorry to disappoint. Good luck in your search for the other John!
