This Tahn

this tahn

If you don't really care about the World Series. I'll give you someone to root for: Freddy Sanchez, short stop 2nd baseman for the San Francisco Giants. Freddy spent the beginning of his major league career and lasted 6 years as a member of my hometown team, the sad sad Pittsburgh Pirates. If you know the plight of the Pittsburgh Pirates, you know that 6 years is like an eternity. However in those 6 depressing years, Freddy managed to win a batting title, become a 2-time All-Star, and above all else, receive the honor of being one of Pittsburgh's most 25 beautiful people by Pittsburgh Magazine. Cool, right?! Go Freddy!

....Anyway I'll be at APE on Saturday with the family walking around and attending all the panels. Sunday, I'll be hanging out with thee Dylan Williams and the Sparkplug Comic Books crew at Table #118, signing Whirlwinds and presenting copies of my latest sketchbook zine anthology, Pet Project. In the expanded convention hall, Sparkplug will be right next to Pigeon Press who will have the latest stuff from Lisa Hanawalt and Matt Furie. Dang! What else am I missing?!? Zack Soto's anthology Studygroup12 #4! Oh man, a new mini from Dan Zettwoch!!! New prints by Ben Catmull! Oh snap, new Mr. Elephanter by Lark Pien!! Koyama Press all the way from Toronto! I feel like my wallet is going to be empty 5 minutes into the show, so many interesting books to get this time around!

So make sure to pay a visit, should be a good time!

Just recently my friend and colleague, Thien Pham and I had the opportunity to interview one of my favorite cartoonists of all time, Brian Ralph for our comics podcast, The Comix Claptrap. It was really fun. Give it a listen!
