Joey Manley

I heard today that Joey Manley, the founder of Modern Tales and WebComicsNation, died from pneumonia. Really surprised, shocked and saddened. He wasn't that much older than me, I think. My web strip Fred the Clown ran on Modern Tales for about half its life, and I still have strips hosted on WebComicsNation. Joey probably helped me expand my audience as much as anybody ever has.

This is the first strip I did for Modern Tales. Worth another airing. I remember Joey being very generous with his praise about it at the time... he made me feel properly welcome, a part of the gang. Anyway, I'm raising a glass to him tonight.
