"LONG-TIME FANS OF MY WORK KNOW THAT RORY GALLAGHER HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE GUITARIST AND PERFORMER SINCE MY HIGH SCHOOL DAYS IN THE MID-1970'S. I DID A TON OF DRAWINGS FOR THIS SET. IT WAS GREAT TO FINALLY GET THE CHANCE TO DO SOME WORK IN THE 'HARD-BOILED DETECTIVE GENRE'. EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, AS A  FAN, WORKING ON THIS PROJECT WAS OBVIOUSLY A GREAT HONOR. NOTHING LIKE THIS RELEASE HAS EVER BEEN DONE BEFORE-- THREE CREATORS FROM DIFFERENT ARTISTIC DISCI[PLINES, BROUGHT TOGETHER TO PAY TRIBUTE TO  A MAN WHO'S BROUGHT THEM SO MUCH JOY AND INSPIRATION." -TIMBO
