Thirteen - Tools of the Trade


     These were the hardest pages I've done in a very long time. And I have no one to blame but myself.

And on top of that, when you get right down to it, we only have Doc's suspicion that she died of anything other than this awful disease I gave her!

     Ah, the horrors of the creative process...
