You may have seen one of these babies Taking up the entire bottom half of an endcap at your local Target. It won't be a very good fit. Its size defies traditional retail shelving organization.
I covet it like nothing else. Sadly, I really have no room for it. It'd be completely irresponsible of me to purchase.
Thankfully, I can console myself with The Question. I doubletook when I was at Target this morning. Can this be? Has it finally come to pass?

After getting home with the toy, I popped in some Justice League Unlimited on DVD to watch while I drew next Tuesday's strip and Maggie folded laundry. "He's awesome! He's like Rorschach!" she exclaimed. Other way around, dear. Other way around.
(Oh, I forgot to mention he comes in a three-pack with Flash and Wonder Woman. Maggie now owns the Flash, because he's reportedly a cutie.)
Mailings of Book 2 continues at a good pace. I'm three-quarters done, and I'm awaiting another shipment of 50 pre-paid Priority Mail envelopes so I can continue mailing out domestic orders. In the meantime, I've dedicated my time to mailing out international orders. We're getting there, folks!
