Hi, how are you doing? Just like I did last year I wanted to ask you a favor, I'm promoting my new comic, as you can see here:

http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2016/03/buy-dawn-of-undead-now-and-win-marvel.html

It would mean a lot to me if you help me spread the link around, and even better yet, if you post something about this on your blog.

Thanks!
