My drawing of Derek didn’t come out nearly the way I wanted it to. I could do a better one now. Oh well. Sorry, Derek.
I’m wearing a Comic Book Legal Defense Fund T-shirt by James Kochalka. It has his character Fancy Froglin saying, “I am wearing tiny pants to hide my genitals!” I used to wear it a lot and people would look at me funny.
The thing about Roger Langridge is only partly a joke. He shared a room at San Diego’s filthiest hotel with Spike and her then-boyfriend (now husband). They called the front desk to complain about all the cockroaches, and the desk attendant said not to worry about them because they were “water roaches.” Roger had to sleep on the floor with the water roaches. Comic-Con is a cruel mistress.
