Hey guys! Today's comic cameos Aaron Diaz, master of all things Dresden Codak. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of dinosaurs that dwarfs Yuko's (it is pretty jaw-dropping!). Aaron's now our lifeline for all things dinosaur. We've been hanging out at the studio that he and Meredith Gran share -- the space is pretty huge, and I'm a little jealous. Also, Heidi is the raddest lil' doggie.
Hey guys! Today's guest comic is from Sophie Goldstein over at Darwin Carmichael is going to hell, a delightful comic that you should check out if you have a moment.
Yuko and I are in Portland right now! We'll be there till the 10th, visiting George and other folks. Comics ought to be on time, but forgive us any delays should they happen.
Have a great week, see you Thursday!
I always offer to carry things for Yuko, but if she wants to carry it on her own, I don't argue! I think a part of chivalry ought to be that you actually listen to a lady. But it's gotten me no end of advice on how to treat a lady from the guys on the block and in the neighborhood, and so I'm trapped between Yuko and street wisdom. Actually, I was surprised - some of the things these guys have said has been remarkably old-fashioned, which in its own way is a little charming. One day I'm going to sit down with one of these guys so I can get the the full chivalry manual.
EDIT: I FORGOT! Yuko and I make a little cameo in a recent edition of Jamie Noguchi's Yellow Peril - first panel!
And that's the conclusion of Yuko's dental travails. Reading through the comments on the last comic, you guys had an awful lot of stories of your own! I guess dental trauma is a familiar childhood topic.
Paypal is still giving me trouble! I'm shipping all orders, but I'm unable to give some of you confirmation - sorry about that.
Ohhh man we are so close to getting this cat! Yuko used our buddy L's method of rough cat-petting to give the cat a test run. We went to the shelter on Thursday and met a bunch of cats. One of them was super friendly, and I have a soft spot for black cats because they're often glossed over either because 1. people are superstitious or 2. because the shelter is full of them, they're seen as generic - a self-fulfilling prophecy. Anyway! This cat came in the day before with 5 other adults and 11 kittens - 17 cats total!
