I'll never forget the first time I heard the word Illuminati, we where standing by the bleachers at Fairchild park, and you drew the eye in the triangle logo on the top row of aluminum in sharpie. Nor will I forget coming across Coopers book at your house, and devouring it years later on my bus ride across the country when I went AWOL.
You where a brother to me like no other, and though I have tried to erase your memory with hate in the past years, there have been moments in the midst of coffee fueled research binges, that I lifted my head from my flickering monitor to wonder if you had abandoned such research. In those moments I was hopeful you had not succumbed to the ways of the sheeple, and felt concerned for your survival of the storms I could see brewing then. I was tempted at times to reach out to you, and to petition you to wield your influence to awaken others, but ego and anger restrained me.
I am joyful to find you have done just that. I want you to know I have also felt the call to join the light side so to speak, or as you put it, found god. I would say I comprehend the importance of dispelling with negativity, and a certain realization that positivity and love are the essence of true growth.
I hope in this light you can forgive me and resurrect your brother. There was a time not long ago where the thought of such a reconciliation was beyond possibility. Plotting your destruction was the only train of thought I rode back then. Revenge for me is an art form, and you where a masterpiece I was working on.
I have since learned the value and power of forgiveness, and the exalting release of negativity that accompanies letting go. It was you that broke my spell of hatred the last time we fought, when you came up to me at that show in Hartford and clashed my skull to yours, I hope I can achieve the same here and now.
I know I said some truly awful and disgusting things to you, you riled every ounce of hatred I have known in those moments. You cannot fathom how much I was hurt by the situation and your accusations.
There is much that can be said, but I only hope we can arise from the dead, let go of our ego's and bad will, and regain a brother-in-arms. Awake is a lonely place, and there are very few who understand the gravity of the situation we are facing.
Your new work is #ing awesome, and I love you for it! If you decide to leave me in the burial ground of your memory, know that you have brought me joy in my grave, and that will be my final revenge.
My time is limited to access such communications regularly. I have taken the potential threats we face very seriously. In less than two weeks I am relocating to an isolated mountain sanctuary where I will learn to be truly self sufficient, growing food and living off the land.
No matter what you decide I wish you well, I am sorry for your loss and for the slights I have committed against you. I will pester you no more if you do not reciprocate. Be well, I hope to see you some day on the other side.
If you haven't seen it, check out the movie Son of Man by Dennis Potter (1969)
I believe you will enjoy it, it changed my heart.
(I tried to send this privately, email me at my last name at gmx.com, if you wish. You know who this is!)
P.S. You where right about that organization, but I was always just checking it out!

I must say, this bizarre, and slightly gay sounding, story of love, betrayal, hate, vengeance, forgiveness, redemption and re-love between you and Infernalis has really affected me.
Reminds me of a situation I was once in, oddly enough!
Please do let us know whether you two end up killing each other or re-uniting in "brother"ly bliss!

Dam, I kinda wish I made the few little posts required to send a private message before making such a public display, but as it's had a happy ending, I'm simply grateful for the end result.
I wanted to get my point across, and I knew it would be received here, so it is done. I'm also glad someone else could enjoy it. I think it's a pretty universal story, and I'm happy to live in the one where the brothers grow up, get over themselves, and make emends.
As for any homoerotic impressions, not that there is anything wrong with the like, but we're a pretty high caliber duo when it comes to the ladies. Poor little lass that ends up in a room with the both of us is bound to fall for one or the other. It's probably a good thing I'm severely taken.
So anyway, whens the next freakin' episode, it's been a long time since I was this excited about a comic book, and it just feels like destiny that this work is coming from such a ridiculously capable and talented artist!
I can't possibly express how utterly excited I am that your back at your craft Mr. Mask. Keep up the great work, it's really awesome to see you bring your delightful sense of humor and talent, to a subject so dreadfully serious!
Cheers to one and all!

Glory day, no?
lol...well, if we didn't kill each other those years ago, I doubt heaven or hell will bring us to that conclusion anytime soon.
BUT I will keep ya informed!
