  1. I’ll be at the Jeff Smith event. I finally tracked down a copy of RASL #1 this week, and I’m really curious to see where he takes the series – it’s definitely written for a more adult audience than Bone was.

  2. Obscenity charges should be filed against Neil Gaiman for his book Fragile Things, on page 225, where he writes about stomping on a cat’s head. The public will definitely find it in poor taste and of no artistic value. If I had enough time and money I would file the charges myself.
