Going Wrong

Matt Taibbi has an excellent post on his blog about the appeal of Sarah Palin.

Bridge Project Anthology Reviewed

The Bridge Project Anthology, which contains “Nerd Prom,” a comic by Carolyn Main and me (with assists by Clave and Shannon Wheeler), has been reviewed by two comic blogs: The Daily Cross Hatch and Optical Sloth.
