Whatever happened to Skunk Comics?

I was wondering this the other night and thought I'd try to see what those guys are up to these days. If you're familiar with the Dallas comic book scene, you'll probably remember them from the local shows and for their book ITA Code of the Dragon. They were around when I first started doing appearances at cons and I thought it was cool meeting some local guys who were publishing comics... Sam Bohon, Sally Ridout and Walker Plagge. I didn't get to hang out with them much but when I did talk to them, they all seemed really cool. Anyway, after a rudimentary Google search...

Walker - Came across his family blog, seems to be teaching and is married with two kids... http://dollyep.blogspot.com (be sure to check out the cool mural he did for this little boys room). And I found his deviantART page... http://cobaltmonkee.deviantart.com/

Sally - She has a website... http://soliloquy.sridout.com/

Sam - Looks like he might have published a couple ITA graphic novel, but I really couldn't find a website for him anywhere.

Maybe they'll Google themselves someday, find this post and report in. Or I bet Samax might know what they're up to...

wow, you can see the future O_o

actually, a more appropriate url for me is portfolio.sridout.com. soliloquy is my fan stuff site (stuff that i am a fan of). i work for a video game company now, and i occasionally draw some web comics. oh, and i go by sully now. that's about it! sam got married and had a baby a while ago, and i haven't talked to him in several years. i haven't talked to walker for even longer.

This is Sams wife, Des. Sam did 2 Ita novels (1 released, the 2nd never made it to publishing but does exist). Skunk Comics ended up being sold to Starline (if I'm remembering correctly) back in '04). I'll try to see if I can poke him for more info.
