not a drawing i am finishing the ones im about to scan very soon i know millions of you are holding your breath

but jesus i had to share this, this is where the name comes from ! In germany early 20th century they invented a pharmaceutical they thought would be less addictive than morphine. tttsshh! They called it Heroin cause of it's "heroic effects on the patient", haw haw. Plus its a "cough suppressant" not even pain killer. I mean, its true, you do cough less when you're heroically comatosin' between your couch pillows.

  5. It also comes from the German "heroisch", which means "powerful", I think...ironically this was available over-the-counter at the time, whilst you needed a prescription to buy aspirin!
    On a totally unconnected note, you got any more stuff for Mome in the pipeline? I thought "Lucid Nightmare" was great.
