    Baby take my hand… Don't fear the ReaperWe'll be able to fly… Don't fear the ReaperBaby I'm your man… "(Don't Fear) The Reaper"- by Blue Oyster Cult written by Donald "Buck Dharma" RoeserThanks, Bo! This is a very fun story. One minor note, it needs more cowbell.

      Thanks Russ–if that's your real name–I feel like I should know you…BTW Sherwood is back next week!

        Yeah, it's my real name. But as far as I know, we don't know each other. Sorry my comment was so obtuse and cryptic. It's just that the song, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper," popped into my head while reading this story, something about Lana telling Cosmo that he would have to leave his body and then Cosmo and Lana diving toward their shadows. The cowbell was a reference to a particularly funny "Saturday Night Live" sketch that revolved around the recording of the song.I'm looking forward to the return of "Demons of Sherwood." That's a cracker-jack story, a wonderful reinterpretation of the characters, beautiful art with a clever and exciting plot.

          So great to hear, Russ!! Demons is about as much fun as I can have in comicsand when it gets thru to the reader Bob and I are always psyched! Especially when they care enough to post! And UNDERWORKED is semi-auto biographical inthat comics is a glam industry in which the aging process usually works againstyou –ultimately there's a little Cosmo in all comics creators if they hang aroundlong enough. Especially those unable or in my case unwilling to re-inventmyself. Thanks again-
