Talk about the cessation of DC's Minx line is reverberating through the journals of lots and lots of people I read today, and for good reason.
You can blame marketing, you can blame booksellers, you can blame the lack of female creators behind the line, or the fact that the books weren't in color, of the title of the imprint, or the fact that not all of the books were great...I just hope that people won't summarize that Minx went under because girls simply don't want to read comics.

Out of nowhere, I woke up to this positively glowing review of my work this morning.
"She is basically like a cross between Lynn Johnston and Bill Watterson."
That is, like, the highest compliment I could possibly receive.
Thank you, Brian Cronin of CBR!

Unbelievably, I just realized my voter information was NOT UP TO DATE!
I've been a registered voter in New York State since 2004, so I figured I was all set for November. But I decided to confirm it anyway, because you never know. So I checked, and only THEN did I realize--hey! I've moved apartments since 2004! Would that have affected my ability to place my vote? Who knows? But this is not the kind of election where I want to take chances.
Are YOU registered?
Is YOUR personal info up-to-date?
Are you SURE?

Dave and I are both hard at work these days, and as a result our living room and computer nook are a disaster of paper, post-its, print-outs, and other comics-related miscellany. Can anyone be super busy and tidy at the same time? If so, you have my respect.

Tomorrow, Dave and I will be in Oakdale, NY for Picture This: Using Images to Illuminate YA Literature! It's a pre-registered event for librarians. Dave and I are presenting a panel called "Collaboration: Two Visions, One Goal!" We'll be joined with many of our friends and peers throughout the day, and I can't wait.

I know all I have been posting lately is photos. I'm sorry about that! My dad sent me a giant envelope of old photos "for SMILE reference," so they're all of awkward me during my middle school years. Thanks, Dad.

Been cleaning up the apartment. I figured you would probably want to see my Babs Bunny costume from Halloween 1992.

My dad has apparently been going through a lot of old paperwork at home, and has found a bunch of stuff relating to my dental experiences in his archives. He sends it to me as he finds it; it's like all these pieces of an old puzzle coming together.
