Wow, the day has actually come.

As you probably know, for the last four and a half years, when the Isotope's beloved Enforcer Jared Guenther wasn't serving up funnybooks here at the shop he was building a well-deserved reputation as SF's premiere make up and special effects artist. We've watched and cheered him on as his career went from strength to strength over the years and always knew there would come the day when he'd be taking that career to the next level by relocating to tinseltown and barnstorming Hollywood.

Well dear friends, that day has come. His apartment is all packed onto moving trucks, both Jared and Anita have jobs eagerly awaiting them, and they've got a swank new Los Angeles pad prepared for their arrival. I'll tell you more about Jared's new gig with special effects masters tomorrow... but today my staff and I celebrate one of the best friends and co-workers we could ever hope to have had.

We're all going to miss him. And for those of you who have never met him, we know you're going to miss all those weekly funny faces and hilarious pictures Jared is famous for. So we decided to pack as many pictures of Jared into this week's staff photos as humanly possible.

You rock, Jared!
