Creator owned series Butcher Baker's 8th issue was almost a year late. Writer and co-creator Joe Casey says:

ďMy TV workload is batshit crazy and Iíll completely cop to that, but it actually has nothing to do with the interminable wait between Butcher Baker #7 and #8. The fact is, Huddleston found himself in a tough spot, having over-committed himself beyond the point of rational thought. He fell way behind and there was nothing I could do about it. Itís frustrating as hell and, in my opinion, supremely embarrassing. Itís not helping the cause of creator-owned comic books when creators canít keep their shit together. Going into this, I thought it would be a fun, breezy ride that I could kick back and get my rocks off doing every month. Turns out, Iíve had to learn some harsh lessons from the experience.Ē

Emphasis mine, and a point which comics artists have taken issue with... as more than one pointed out on twitter: whether you love or hate working on a book as an artist, "fun and breezy" does not really describe your work conditions.

Huddleston's reply to this certainly paints him in a better light than Joe, whose next creator owned collaboration may begin with a terse "cash up front" on the part of the artist. (;

Didn't Casey once admit that he started taking heavy drugs while he was writing X-Men because he felt he needed to "keep up" with Grant Morrison?

Haha. Even it's that's not true, it's pretty funny.
