Went to Rocketship Comics in Cobble Hill last night and got my Achewood book signed (and one for Kevin). The thing went on well past midnight (we ditched the line and came back later). I really admire Chris Onstad for powering through it, long after the bar had closed and after his body started shaking a little bit. I think he made a lot of fans very happy last night.

While I was there I picked up the newest Acme Novelty Library. I generally thought of Rusty Brown as a much simpler story than the intertwining plots and family trees of Jimmy Corrigan, but this installment really adds another level. Woody Brown's story fits well into the Chris Ware pattern of alienation and horrifying loneliness and the sci-fi first half is really amazing.
