I went to Comic-Con on Saturday. It was a blast. I was thrifty but I overspent my budget. Things I saw and people I met. Jack Black was there roaming the exhibition hall. I told him I liked Saving Silverman and he thanked me. I got Kyle Baker's comic Nat Turner. There was a talk by Ward Sutton. Sutton said that reporters for papers he drew for told him that it was common knowledge that Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris were getting it on. I went to the Fantagraphics area and told Ivan Brunetti that I really liked his cartoons about James Thurber (I lived in Columbus). I got an autographed copy of Schizo. I went to the Drawn & Quarterly table and got a copy of Optic Nerve and Adrian Tomine signed it (I first learned about Optic Nerve from The Happy Mutant's Handbook). A religious table had copies of "This was your Life." I grabbed a copy. At last year's Comic-con, I mentioned that I got a copy of Tex: George W. Bush and the Fine Art of Character Assassination. Atomic Basement, which publishes Tex, had a table. They have a comic serial Gone South. With my John McCain/boobs post in mind, I asked Mike Wellman, the author, if there were any boobs in Gone South; he showed a pair in Gone South #3. That was enough for me to buy a copy.
