Happy Birthday to Me!


Do you like the photoshop I did with the picture? Charlie eat your heart out. Apologies to Jacob for stealing your birthday cake but I needed it more than you did. Don’t worry when you grow up you will understand.

Well if you haven’t figured it out, its my birthday. Yeah, on June 1 1978 at exactly 7am, David Anthony Arroyo was born to the world. I don’t know how much I weighed because even at that young an age I was telling people to fuck off when the subject of weight came up. But I have always suspected that I was Hugh Heffeners illegitimate son, maybe it was my choice of clothing. What do you think?


(Coincidence I think not!)

Seriously though folks, I have to say that this past year has been one of my best. I have been blessed with so many things. I have made some really great friends like Lene Taylor & Charlito my fellow podcasters. I have been very lucky to work with someone who not only believes In my work but, is a blast to work with. I got to interview the man who got me reading comics Mr. Mark Waid. I am about to embark on a new journey in my life.

And most of all I have gotten so much support form all of you which is the best birthday gift I could ever ask for. So from the bottom of my heart thank you and I hope we will still be here next year to say it again!

Behind the scenes at Comic Makers

Okay so this week’s episode will feature an interview if the great Jay Faerber creator and writer of Noble Causes. Jay was a great guy and I loved talking to him. But I have to tell you this episode was cursed! Maybe it was the fact that it was number 13 and im sure conducting the interview on a Friday didn’t help but it was like the universe was conspiring against me.

First the telephone company crossed my phone line with another house, effectively shutting down my DSL connection. So I flew to Juan Lapaix house who is the only other person I know who has anything other than dial up. Only to half way during the interview have a power outage. Then it came back only to once again go out! Turns out two power transformers exploded knocking out electricity for the entire neighborhood!

But thanks to Jays patience and my persistence I know have the full interview on my laptop. It will probably be uploaded May 3rd guys. In the meantime listen to these bloopers that the power failure produced. Special note, I am cursing God not Mr.Faerber.
