Happy to say that Zander, Julie, and Jin have arrived safely back from Korea.

STUFF OF LIFE NOMINATED FOR YALSA
This December 23 marks the release of Zander's and my second full-length graphic novel, The Stuff of Life. And even though the entire book is obsessed with sex*, Stuff has been nominated for a YALSA! You can read more here. Every year YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) compiles a list of the best graphic novels for teens. The final list will be announced this spring.

SCIENCE IDOL CALENDAR HAS ARRIVED
Fellow Grinnellian Eli Zigas and I recently won a spot in the Union of Concerned Scientists annual calendar -- we're April 2009! You can get your own copy here.
THURSDAY Bring your comics to Diamond's Coffee Shoppe at 6:30 and help collate. We'll need help folding the boxes (thanks for buying the boxes, Steve!), and putting stickers on the boxes' face and spine. Once that's done we'll take everyone's comics and collate 'em.
This is not cartooning-related, but we just got the call this morning. We're headed to Korea on Wednesday to pick up our little boy, Jin-Seo Park. Thanks so much to everyone for their well-wishes over the last many, many months of waiting. We're so thrilled, and we can't wait to finally be a family.
