For my readers who are not American, I should probably explain what “after school special” means. Basically, these are hour-long TV-movies targeted at young teenagers and pre-teens, and shown in the late afternoon, when kids are home from school but parents are still at work. They always address topics, and their themes are pretty broad and simplistic: don’t do drugs, don’t have sex, etc.
It occurs to me that I have no idea if these are still being made. Hmmm.
Anyway, in other news the Small Press Expo is coming up the weekend after next, September 14-15 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in North Bethesda, Maryland. It’s easy to get to from Washington DC if you don’t have a car—there’s a metro stop right there. It’s also one of those really cool independent comics shows that it totally worth traveling to. (If I didn’t have a table, I’d being going anyway.) But I do have a table! Table C10, which I am sharing with Jay Fuller. I’ll have all three Finn and Charlie books, some prints, some t-shirts, and a brand-new minicomic about food, called Foodwise.
See you there, maybe?
