Got an email via the Daily Dragon asking if the rumors that Drew Hayes had died were true or not. 1. I had no idea who Drew Hayes was and 2. rumors? What rumors? Engaged my Google-fu and discovered he is (was?) the creator of the comic Poison Elves but not anything related to a timely or untimely demise. Anyone out in Internet-land have any info on the matter before I send a reply back to the effect of "guh"?

Still no title, but making good progress on the story. And, err, now I'm getting a little worried about the scope. This tale's beginning to push my initial word count estimate. *throws up hands in exasperation* Stupid muse. NOT a novelette, dammit. Certainly not a novella!

Write now. Cut later. :-D

I've never heard of him, and I don't know if he's dead or alive. So I'm no help...I recommend the "guh" response, as well. :)

Can't confirm, but here is what I know
I am a huge fan of Drew Hayes. His comic poison elves, was the first comic my brother ever handed me and I was hooked. I too had heard a rumor that he died, but have not been able to confirm. He was/is very ill and has turned the comic over to someone else to write. So if he did indeed die, it wasn't necessarily a surprise as he has been very ill for a few years now. He actually wrote about his illness in one of his comics to explain his absence from the comic world.

That's the most information I've heard on the subject. THANK YOU! I'm still deep into "guh?" territory, but at least I have a better idea of the circumstances.

You're quite welcome. Btw, I first heard the rumor at dragon con, which may explain why someone is e-mailing you from the daily dragon. There was a girl that was dancing with the pirate band thing one night and she had one of drew hayes drawings as a tatoo on her back and my husband went and complimented her on it and she said that he had died that Thursday. *shurg* If its true the comic worl lost an amazing artist
