Hey, Shaenon here. I’m posting from my slightly belated birthday party, while I wait for my Skin Horse collaborator Jeffrey Wells to return from the corner store with more red wine. I need wine, dammit! Wine!
Anyway. Narbonic. Right. I totally worship and adore Lea Hernandez, so getting this comic from her was an enormous thrill. She showed me the pencils at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con, in, like, July, and then six months passed before she finally got the thing inked and scanned. But, as you can see, it was more than worth the wait. This is easily one of my favorite pieces of Narbonic art ever. Argh, so cute.
And, yes, I love the hell out of “Lilo and Stitch.” For some reason there’s a butt-ton of “Lilo and Stitch” merchandise in Japan, so when I was in Tokyo a couple of weeks ago I got myself a keychain of Stitch eating Tokyo Tower. It’s super cute, but not as cute as Lea’s comic.
Right. Back to the party. Shaenon out.
