    Default Best Wishes and or Prayers to Rich

    I am sure you read his wife's post. So I thought this would be a good post for him to read when he can gt back to his computer, and see we appreciate and care for him.

    Thanks for all you have done to enhance our joy RICH!

    It means that people who are married usually mention it fairly often, and the Giant never mentioned being married. In fact, his oblique references to someone caring for him when he's ill made me think that he wasn't married, since otherwise, why not just say "my wife takes care of me when I'm ill" rather than the nonspecific "somebody". So I'm kind of startled that Mrs. Giant appeared after being totally invisible for many, many years.

    To tell the truth, I've been thinking of the Giant as gay (in the non-perjorative sense) since I first started reading this comic many years ago. I was about 100% certain of it until earlier today when I made my first post in this thread, in fact. Hence my momentary surprise.

    He's drawn a cartoon with his wife in it before--check the bottom left comic on this page:

    Heh. The old "glass in the hand" excuse, is it?

    Seriously though, that sounds really sucky. Here's to hoping for a full recovery.

    You guys have been so supportive and patient all year and Rich is really frustrated that he's letting you down by making you wait even longer for the stories he's been trying to bring to you.
    Giant, I really don't feel let down (and if I might venture a guess, I have an inkling that the majority of your fans thinks the same way). Don't stress yourself, accidents happen all the time – thank goodness your injury will heal well, and I just hope you feel much better soon.

    Now, if only we could get someone to Cure Serious Wounds or Wish the Giant. Anybody up for the task? Mrs. Giant, are you by any chance a Cleric or high-level Wizard?

    Get well soon, Rich! Your health and the ability to do anything but comics again is more important than said comics, no matter how eagerly we're expecting them.

    Giant,

    I hope everything heals up well and you're not in too much pain. I know how much it sucks being told '6 weeks to heal', as I'm currently working through the same time frame for a broken ankle. I'd say get well soon, but just get well is the important bit!

    Thank you for letting us know Mrs. Giant. It is nice to know that Mr. Giant has you to share his journey with.

    Here's hoping for a full recovery in however much time as it takes. Put me down as a reader who is content, and doesn't want any perception of obligation to cause someone to rush back into drawing. You hear that sir? :) I buy your stuff, and you owe me nothing! Heal first!
