Re: Oddball Update (for Jenn): Barn of Fear!
If you'd responded sooner, before I left, I could have picked you up a trading card set featuring some of the best Oddball Comics covers (such as "Space Western" and "Manuel Pacifico, Tuna Fisherman.") Well, maybe next year. I'm disappointed that we had to leave early on Sunday, before the con opened, so I missed the live Oddball Comics sideshow (with Julius Schwartz, the DC editor who thought gorilla covers boosted sales, as special guest, I hear.)
Jenn, if you stick around, maybe you could join us next year. I know it's a long way to fly, but we're hoping to get Nappy back, and perform some Jihadic rituals or whatnot. Hopefully I'll have time and energy to *finally* make balloon wolverines (had balloons with me, but a} was too tired and b} when I tried a couple of times, I had a heck of a time tying the thing before I even got to sculpting, so it just sat squeezing my finger until it popped [balloon that is].) I'm going to try to get my paper idea conceived and written early this year, so I'm under less pressure.
