imitation baked goods

T minus five to the end of the semester--today's Duplicating Rebuilding the Bridge Day, tomorrow's WFMU Record Fair Day a.k.a. Douglas's 33 1/3 Birthday, Monday is Two Art Classes and a Hell of a Lot of Editing Day, Tuesday is A Genuinely Overwhelming Amount of Editing Plus Drinks With Finns Plus Meeting With Dean Wolff Day, Wednesday is Frantically Editing Plus RTAII Meeting Plus, Actually, One More Class Day, Thursday is Final Actual Classes Plus Last Minute Technological Desperation Day, Friday is NAJP Meeting Plus Music Trivia Competition to Unwind a Little Day. So if I'm not posting here much over the next week, forgive me, do.

Today's also Free Comic Book Day, but since it's DRtBD too, I don't know if I'm going to be able to take advantage of that. In any case, it's not like I have so few comic books that I'm scraping for more. (Although I did go to Jim Hanley's Universe a couple of days ago and indulge in some Brian Michael Bendis stuff, specifically Daredevil, which I think I have to start buying monthly again, and Alias. And the new Cerebus, which is scary-creepy in a way that I think is mostly intentional--Dave hints that next issue is going to explain a lot, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he means by that.) (But what I'm looking forward to most in all of comics is the next Amy Unbounded, closely followed by the two Alan Moore festschrifts due this year and, after that, curiously enough, Lost Girls.)

Only twelve more issues till the end of Cerebus.

I still remember reading that the issue that introduced the McGrew brothers and your particular rendition of Dirty Fleagle yelling "Ouchie! Ouchie!"
