First of all, it's really frustrating how loose a grip Storm Shadow has on his swords. They must have fallen out of his hands like 30 times in the course of setting up the photograph. Arrrrgh!

Otherwise, these guys rule. I'm not a big fan of either of their characters, but they play together well. Also, I'm glad I have the commando/pre-ninja version of Snake-eyes, which means that he and Storm Shadow can replicate that one scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. You know the one. You don't bring an Uzi to a swordfight.

Rat tat tat tat.
Skeeball!

Shortpacked!: Whatever, she was, like, a slut anyway.

I had eyed Top Shelf's booth at Comic-Con frequently for The Incredible Change-Bots by Jeffrey Brown, but I kept missing Jeffrey Brown himself, preventing me from getting that coveted personal hello. But amazingly, one of Top Shelf's reps came to the BLC booth and hand-delivered me a copy. Hot damn! (They know who I am? Yikes!)

One way or another, I had to get this book, and I'm glad I did. It's hilarious. The Incredible Change-Bots follows the planet-shattering war of the Awesomebots and their dastardly foes the Fantasticons. Yes, that's right, it's a Transformers send-up. What tickles me is how expertly it's done. The absurdities of the conceits of the Transformers franchise are put up on the mocking block, but lovingly so. Howard Tayler, a man who knows absolutely nothing about Transformers, flipped through it, and even he said it was great. It's a seriously charming little book.

I implore you to buy it. You gotta.

Speaking of Howard, he's put up the art I drew for him while sitting in our booths that weekend. That was seriously a lot of screwing he had to do. Like, a buttload of screwing. You have no idea.

Remember that comic I got Sergeant Slaughter to sign? Well, a man who identifies himself as Chris, the Mysterious Stranger, who was in front of me in the autograph line, out of the blue sent me a photograph he took of us while the haps were happening! Man, this Mysterious dude is great, and he made my day.

Sergeant Slaughter photographs a lot older than he seems in person. Hrgh.
