The Isotope will be closed today in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. And while we're busy filling our plates with turkey and stuffing and butter-slathered mashed potatoes with good friends, family, and loved ones... we're also taking the day and thanking our lucky stars above for the people and the things that make our lives wonderful.

And today I'm giving thanks to all of you. For being as passionate as you are about the Isotope and for giving me the gift of making all my wildest hopes and dreams come true. Thank you.

I'm also giving thanks to the good fortune I have been blessed with to be friends with so many friendly and creative people. You inspire me and make every year more exciting than the last. Thank you.

And to the city of San Francisco. For being the beautiful and bizarre cultural land of milk and honey where all us dreamers, eccentrics, zealots, thinkers, and weirdos can truly feel at home. Thank you.

And to the wisdom and support of my wonderful family. I live my life by the hard-working, straightforward, bacon-loving, heart-on-my-sleeve, Midwestern values they raised me with. And I couldn't be more thankful to have such great people teach me to see what things are truly important in this world. Thank you.

And I'm also giving thanks to Joel Patterson. For setting up his fleamarket table in the park all those many years ago and selling me my first comic. Thank you.
