    I’m so excited for this release! The only bummer is I’ll have to travel to catch it. Why no Philadelphia releases? I know a TON of bookstores that would GLADLY host, if that’s still an option. If not, NYC is only a 2-hr bus trip away!

    Wow. Holy crap. I’m going to check your stuff out. You have an awesome comic. Found it via: http://freakangels.com/whitechapel/comments.php?DiscussionID=6490 Good stuff. I’ll be catching up with your work. A family of Katrina refugees held up in the house behind mine when I lived in Virginia. What an incredible American tragedy. Glad to find you.

    No stops in the LA area?? Why not?

    I do wish you the best at your other stops though!

    Hi Josh. I haven’t gotten in contact in a long time. As my miraculous timing would have it, I *just* missed your signings in New Orleans - and I mean, you started on Friday evening and I flew out Saturday morning. I have every intention of finally catching you on the 16th at McNally though! My health has not been the best of late, but if it’s a day that I can walk, you can believe I’ll be there. Perhaps I’ll remember to finally bring you a copy of my zine, which I don’t think I ever sent to you.

    Hey Melissa, Sorry we missed crossing paths in NOLA, and hope to see you NYC at McNally Jackson. Feel better!

    Josh - it was so great to finally get to meet you tonight, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that you took the time to talk to me. Hearing you speak about the project was moving: it is obvious that your dedication to the “characters” runs deep, as does your true understanding of that event. Thank you for continuing to bring attention to the ongoing struggles in New Orleans, and for providing those of us who lived through the storm with a lucid and even remembrance of this event that we will never fully understand but will also never stop exploring. I hope we have the chance to talk again.
