Unshelved comic strip for 1/12/2008

Happy Birthday to Me from Gene

Sunday is my birthday, and as is our tradition Gene drew the strip. Which explains why it's of a different, ah, aesthetic than usual. Back to normal on Monday!

Starstruck @ ALA

So there I am, talking to someone at ALA, and she says "my husband is over there talking to Art Spiegelman." And so he was. So after girding my loins and gathering my courage (or was it the other way around?) I walked over and got introduced. He's a nice guy, we talked business models and Cintiqs for about ten minutes. I gave him a book and a Raid jacket. And when I got back to the booth I wiped the drool off my chin and got back to business.
