Contacting The Pain

Due to the increased volume of fan mail, hate mail, stalkers, and misguided offers of work he receives, as well as his increasingly clearly defined personality quirks, Tim Kreider can no longer respond directly to electronic mail. In the future, all fan/business e-mail will be answered by his intern, Ms. Phelatia Czochula-Hautpanz, at hautpanz@thepaincomics.com. Hopeful groupies will be pre-screened by Ms. Hautpanz, and the approved candidates forwarded to Mr. Kreider.

Tim Kreider will still respond to all actual letters written on paper delivered by the U.S. Postal Service to:

P.O. Box 422
Charlestown, MD 21914
