I don’t feel so good…Man oh man, what a god awful year this has been. Listen, I understand it has been a tough year for US ALL, but JFC 2020 hit me hard. I lost far too many people this year. I lost friends and family to suicide, gun violence, old age, and both my father and Ralph to heart issues. All of this has really put my holiday spirit down the tubes, but it has made me re think my own life choices as far as health is concerned.

Meanwhile the country is quickly sliding into ruin as the Pandemic shows no sign of slowing down while destroying lives for millions of Americans, and our government does next to nothing help. It’s almost enough to make you want to lay down your arms and just give up. However that’s not an option…that has NEVER been an option. It’s hard guys…it really is. Every day it gets just a bit tougher to drag yourself out of bed and exist, but while my hopes for 2021 are not very high I do think things will pick up a little bit…I mean they kind of have to don’t they? I truly do not see how we can keep going like this without something giving. So I choose to believe that life will improve, and if it doesn’t well then its about time we rise up and make things better, but I digress…

We do reserve the right for the Choppy Bois to make their comeback… Just sayin.

Not everything was a total nightmare though…some good things did happen. Bought a house, got married, and dropped the first two issues of TEWOJ Comics (available now!!). In a normal year I’d be immensely proud and hype on these facts, but 2020… so bit of a mixed bag this year. What about next year though? Well I’ve got a few things cooking…

First up will be Jalldoonian Lore Vol 1 Appendix which will be about 40 pages (maybe more, but definitely not less) of lore. Featuring the Mages Journal stories previously exclusive to the JLE with an ALL NEW Chapter tying the saga up a bit, and also setting the stage for the future. It also features a few other stories like the Shocktrooper’s Tale and a brand new tale as well as tons of new art from…probably Terry Thielen, but Terry and I haven’t sealed the deal on that officially yet.

Next up will be TEWOJ Comics Issue #3 which beyond the cover, and some barebones elements of one of the stories there has been very little work done for…again its been a tough year. Hard to get much done, but Issue 3 will be coming in 2021 at some point.

2021 will also see a marked increase in weekly content being posted here on DK, and in fact there is a couple of new lore bits comin very soon!

I’m also working on a little special project with my old dear friend from Monster’s Holding Bitches it is unrelated to anything I’m working on here, but I think ya’ll will like it.

There is a couple of other semi secret projects, but the only one I know for sure will happen is Jalldoonian Lore Vol 2, but I kind of doubt we will see that this year…still a lot of writing and art needed for that beast. I’d like to get back into the toys a little bit (and this year MAY see the release of the next collab with Zoloworld, but that’s out of MY hands on delivery time) with my printers still out of commission I don’t quite see that happening just yet. Which brings me to my next point…

You know me, all my projects are self funded. Multiple Production figures, a ton of 3D printed and resin figures over Two lines, 3 Books, 2 comics since 2013 all self funded with no Kickstarter or Gofund me to be seen, and I will never use those platforms, nor will I pre order products that are not ready to come out making you wait years for something you paid for. All that being said…2020 has hit the old wallet hard with severely cut hours at work so my budget for anything except staying alive is looking like that part in Mickeys Christmas Carol when they cut up the tiny turkey LOL…this is America…

Tell em Lando!

ANYWAY… point is this year I need your help BIG TIME, and no I’m not asking you for money… all I ask if you enjoy any of the stuff I do show a friend, post a pic or review online, request your local comic or book store carry Rampageo Press books, link here, visit the site daily, share store links… ANYTHING and EVERYTHING helps. Word of mouth is crucial to a venture like this, and every new fan makes getting this stuff out easier. Asking for help is never easy, and most cats out there want to big time…that’s not me, and never will be. So all I ask is plug me…plug me hard!

Beyond that I’m pretty much spent for the year…time to sit back, relax, and ring in the new year…hopefully it’s better than this trash, but I won’t hold my breath. As always HUGE thanks to YOU who keeps this ship afloat. You guys have continually and habitually been killing it with your support, and I love you. Stay safe and healthy my friends. -Doc
