Here's a glimpse of the special dedication page in the next book.
Shane was big in the Houston indie writer and zine scene. Tommy was a hell of an artist, and was a bit of an eccentric character as well (bit is downplaying it tremendously!). Both passed away due to complications regarding diabetes. Shane got to a point to where he couldn't afford his insulin. Tommy's health, from what I heard, steadily moved downhill over the years. I'm not sure if he took care of himself as best as he could but I do know it's hard enough out here supporting yourself as an artist, let alone supporting yourself and paying these outrageous American healthcare costs. If healthcare had been cheaper or universal both of these human beings might still be here with us today.
So guys, here's to you and your continuing legacy. You are missed every day.
