    “Michael’s humor matched with Debbie’s style and charm has been a dream pairing. I am thrilled to have the team back together with Naked!”

    I’m so happy for you that you’re seeing the attention you deserve! It sounds like your team LOVES you, too, which is as it should be. Huge congrats!

    And I love this comic, and those popping colors. Thank you, Debbie!

    Hi Debbie!

    I am now seeing your artwork and comics and like them. They seem to be free spirited and fun. Congratulations on the collaboration for Naked! Look forward to seeing it.

    Congratulations! He’s hilarious, in person and in print, even his tweets make me snort-laugh.
