Erin: Three hundred sixty-six days. Three hundred twenty-four comics. I’ve lost track of the number of sketchbooks…
Walter: Nine hundred thirty-nine cups of tea.
Integra: Two hundred sixty-one cigars.
Walter: That figure sounds low.
Integra: Well, I quit for that month, and was on an island without cigars for one storyline.
Seras: Three pints of blood…
Alucard: Twelve to thirteen hundred is normal. You’re like a vampire anorexic.
Pip: Nine panels of face time. What gives?
Enrico: Four human/vampire kisses. What kind of smut are you trying to draw here?
Erin: Eleven storylines. Four point one million hits. Four visits to “the doujinshi-ka’s inbox”. Eleven incidences of karaoke. Hey, while we’re at it, let’s make it twelve! Start up the tune to “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent!
Erin (singing): Five hundred twenty-fix thousand six hundred minutes / Five hundred twenty-fix thousand six hundred moments so dear / Five hundred twenty-fix thousand six hundred minutes / How do you measure, measure a year? / In panels, in kisses, in cigars and cups of tea / in stories – in hits, in packets of blood / Five hundred twenty-fix thousand six hundred minutes / how do you measure a year that you’ve drawn? / Measure in – fans! / Measure in – fans! / Measure in – fans! / Emails from fans!
Erin: And I’ve gotten 355 of those! Thank you all! You make me feel so loved! Keep reading, and keep enjoying as we enter the second year of And Shine Heaven Now!
