(The Set to Sea book is out now!)

• Damn, Set to Sea has been getting some flattering reviews recently. This from a roundtable discussion at Time Magazine’s Techland blog: “Set to Sea is just beautiful, emotional in all the right ways, and mixed with unexpected moments to pull it away from sugary sentiment and tweeness – Dude gets shot in the eye! Man!”
• Have you seen Joey Weiser’s fun new fishboy-out-of-water series Mermin? I’ll be sharing a table with Joey at SPX, where he’ll be debuting issue 3, so I urge you to come by and check out all the Toriyama-esque shenanigans!

• I just heard the actual recording from that Dr. Laura “n-word” episode. Man, that lady just loved saying “the n-word.” She was practically rolling it around on her tongue. What a horrible person.
• Also just heard a recording of an anti-“ground zero mosque” radio ad that seriously said: “On September 11th, they declared war against us. And to celebrate that murder of 3,000 Americans, they want to build a monstrous 13-story mosque at Ground Zero. This ground is sacred.” Ugh, ugh, ugh.
