This installment is dedicated “to the purple Smurf.” Andrew had probably just finished telling me how, as a child, he was traumatized by watching the terrifying purple Smurf episode of “The Smurfs” while home with a high fever, so it came across as some kind of horrible hallucination. This would not be the last time the purple Smurf episode would come up in my comics.
Oh, and hey!
It’s the new two-volume Narbonic omnibus edition! I’ve been working hard on this sucker, and it’s a thrill to have boxes upon boxes of it here. Although not as thrilled as I’ll be to have boxes upon boxes of it gone.
If you’re in the San Francisco area, there will be a Narbonic book release party at Borderlands Books from 5:00-7:00 PM on Saturday, November 19. I promise cupcakes and wine.
