Sorry about the extremely light posting over the past few weeks. We just finally sent the second issue of Comics Comics to the printers and, fingers crossed, it should debut at the SPX convention in Bethesda this weekend.

Thanks, by the way, to everyone who came out to the Comics Comics event in Philadelphia on Saturday. It was a lot of fun, at least for us. The conversation between David Heatley and Lauren went extremely well, I thought; if our tape recorder worked properly, look for a transcription either in a future issue or here on the blog. Matthew Thurber blew my mind with his performance—Frank unrolled a giant scroll of pretty elaborate Thurber illustrations while Thurber played a tiny guitar and sang apparently related lyrics. And I don’t think I’ll ever look at PShaw‘s Strings the same way after his thorough, hilarious presentation. What once was dark is now light—and vice versa. Anyway, thanks again to all who came, and to the 215 Festival for inviting us.
