I had to draft in my good mate, 2000AD/MARVEL/DYNAMITE letterer Simon Bowland, as well as sneaking away to mess around with the coloring a bit on my other mates laptop, and getting up at dawn to silently finish it whilst she was asleep in bed 3 feet away from me.
Previous successful proposals-by-comic include Rob Liefeld, who printed a whole back up story in an issue of Youngblood to pop the question.
