YEAR 40

Well yesterday was my birthday, and so now I am finally 40. I had a couple of pages to finish from the weekend, and so I just finished the drawing on my Year 40 Project. For the grand finale, I did hourly comics about my day yesterday. I will get these all posted at some point.

I also more or less successfully got my Top 40 cds done. I tried to keep the first volume more upbeat and happy. I could still tweak here and there if I let myself. Here are the lists:
