I ended up missing Katsucon for the first time in a couple of years because of the snow, which was a huge, depressing bummer.
But I did get to swing by Raina's book release this weekend! Raina is the cartoonist behind Scholastic's Babysitter's Club comics. SMILE! is Raina's autobio comic about her dental saga against the backdrop of friendships and high school. We finally got to read a copy and it was a blast, and it got Yuko talking about her own dental woes, which we've rendered here in the first of two parts. This comic makes me wince every time I look at it. She still has that bag of nerves somewhere!
Oh, the cat has a name! He's Rook. Thanks for all your suggestions, guys!
We have some new things coming in, including Basilisk tote bags! Pretty excited for these guys:
His days are pretty tough! All that sleep can tire a basilisk out. We'll keep you posted on the ETA of these guys.
By the way, any interest in doing an NYC reader meet-up? Dunno why I never asked before.
I think that's it ... no originals this week, as our schedule is looking a little heavy. Have a great week, and we'll see you Thursday for the (presumably painful) conclusion to this dental saga.
