Happy Birthday Gene


Today is Gene's birthday and, as is our tradition, I have drawn an Unshelved comic strip that runs more to his sense of humor than mine. Today through Thursday please enjoy a very special sequence based on a true story sent to us by email, about a patron determined to doodle a specific piece of human anatomy in every magazine in the library.

P.S. The best way to wish Gene a Happy Birthday is to buy something from our Store

P.P.S. See past Gene's Birthday strips here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
