I wish I had told him: man, take me with you when you go.

Oh shit I forgot to say, I was talking to Martin last night and he said he hope that will be back, at least on ILC, eventually. He's just had a particularly bad patch, for no particular reason that I know of, and retreated to 'core functions' for a while and is re-adding bits of his life to his routine as and when he can. ILX is definitely on the list. He sends his love to all, particularly Ned + Dan + Ally.

Hahaha I can totally see him saying this.

Say hi to him for me, and I hope to see him on ILC soon (not that I'm around much anymore, myself).

four years pass...

what were the first two Piranhas? Beautiful Stories #1, I'm guessing, and... Epicurus or Gregory? the pinefox's cropping gives no clue.

...wait, Conrad? That hideous-looking ETC thing was by a Tim Conrad and the Milestone dude who had a CBG column where he just talked about Hollywood and got a 15-year headstart on dismissing haters, right?

Ward Fowler, Sunday, 27 March 2011 08:27 (six years ago) Permalink

Oh, fuck. I hope this turns out OK.

Algerian Goalkeeper, Sunday, 27 March 2011 16:35 (six years ago) Permalink

Look towards the positive as he suggests -- best wishes for him, for sure.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 27 March 2011 16:38 (six years ago) Permalink

I kept meaning to email him for ages and never did it.

Algerian Goalkeeper, Sunday, 27 March 2011 16:40 (six years ago) Permalink

If you're friends with him on Facebook I strongly suggest reading his note he just posted.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 2 April 2011 20:29 (six years ago) Permalink

I'm not on FB, but he emailed me an hour ago as I emailed him the other day. I still haven't been able to work out what to say in a reply. All my best thoughts go out to you Martin if you're reading this.

Ned/Suzy, i emailed martin but as i dont have FB please could you send him my support? Thanks.

This is just horrible. :-(

I don't know what to say, it's awful.

hopefully someone can pass on good wishes to Martin on whatever further developments or prognoses may or may not have occurred

Thank you, please do that.

Tuomas, Sunday, 3 April 2011 12:10 (six years ago) Permalink

Best wishes and internet hugs, Martin.

had a gd long chat w martin. he doesn't want his illness to be any kind of secret and is happy for ppl to talk abt it on ilx. he also thanked ppl for their emails and gd wishes, here and elsewhere.

one thing that wld cheer him up, i think, is to get many more submissions for FA
http://comiczine-fa.com/ - so get writing!

Ward Fowler, Monday, 4 April 2011 18:50 (six years ago) Permalink

Im glad Martin knows all his online friends are here to offer him all the support he needs. Wish there was something we could do.

I have been butting heads with a guy irl who has nothing good to say about Martin from the Trident era so this is a welcome palate cleanser. Thanks Ward.

martin was lovely, friendly, generous and very open, one of the ppl who made me stick around this place when i discovered it

H in Addis, Tuesday, 16 April 2013 22:19 (four years ago) Permalink

i never interacted with him, but from reading his posts here as well as his pieces on Freaky Trigger, i could tell he was a great guy.
