It’s true! Andrew’s not a science-fiction nerd, only a comic-book nerd! He’d never watched “Star Trek” or anything before he met me. How is that even possible?
I actually did draw this at Super-Con in Hayward. Many of the people in the crowd are based on reality. That guy in the wizard robes used to show up at every Bay Area con, sometimes dressed as Optimus Prime. I haven’t seen him lately, sad to say.
My T-shirt reads “Secret History of the Comics,” which was the title of a zine Andrew produced (available through the Couscous Store!). I’ve mentioned this before, but for a number of years Andrew and I made CafePress T-shirts commemorating each of our Alternative Press Expo appearances. The “Secret History of the Comics” shirt was one of them.
