Ace and Alan
This happy fellow is Ace, the star of Old School, a comic series I created with Alan Gallo.
We've only got four more pages to go before issue #1 is completely penciled and inked, and Alan has really mastered the characters and started taking them to some outrageous places.
Ace in particular gets hit with some pretty emotional stuff, and ends up looking like this by the last panel of the last page:
Things don't get any easier for him next issue, but at least he gets to do more punching, which he finds therapuetic.
