Scott McCloud is a genius. Nay, THE genius. Anyone even remotely interested in the psychology of storytelling should read this. The best way to make Non-comics folk hip to the importance of the form, even more so than his last two books (which also kill). Indispensable and amazing. And thanks to Junio, my copy is personalized to me by the man himself. Thanks, buddy!

Junio You're welcome.

How is the latest volume of SATF going?

You should go to MoCCA festival this year, come on up to NYC and we can hang out.

Charlie Its turning into a monster. I'm at 30 pages and I think it'll stop somewhere just shy of forty, and I'm thinking of doing a tagalong mini of all the stuff I've edited out.
When is MoCCA, anyway?
