063 - also there was a comic convention

Hey guys! We just got back from a trip to TCAF in Toronto! We are all pretty exhausted, but I will put that aside a moment to tell you about the place we stayed. 

We got a room at a hotel about a 20 minute walk from TCAF, down Jarvis St. We were looking to find a place on the cheap - I checked the crime rate, found it to be okay, and so we got the room. It wasn't a particularly bad area in any sense, just surprisingly populated by hookers after midnight. Most of them wore American Apparel, and that is both the best and worst thing ever ... This comic only recalls the events of the first night, in which fate implied that a prostitute was in the room next door. The next night, when we got back even later, we caught a glimpse of a party through the open door, and the lamé booty shorts and stiletto heels only served to confirm our suspicions. 

We managed to catch a lot of people at TCAF, both old friends and new faces! Here they are, enumerated for your convenience,

Bryan Lee O'Malley
Rich Stevens
Meredith Gran
Jeffrey Rowland
Erika Moen
Lucy Knisley
Scott C.
JLJ, Cory Casoni
Karl Kerschl
Ross Campbell
Steve Wolfhard
And finally, a couple of readers who stopped us - thanks for saying hi!

They are all scholars and gentle(wo)men, and it was a pleasure to see them all! And apologies if I've missed anyone!
