(The Set to Sea book is out now!)

• Last week was the week of potlucks, I went to three in a row. Good thing my friends know how to cook! I’m feeling really positive about the medium of the potluck right now.
• What? Miyazaki might be making a sequel to Porco Rosso? That was a gorgeous movie, but I don’t really know if it needs a sequel. Also, if the new Studio Ghibli “Borrowers” adaptation doesn’t do well, Miyazaki threatens to press the Ghibli self-destruct button.
• Cartoonist Laura Park lost her cat, Lewis, recently. She’s been working through her grief in some really beautiful, sad comics. Best wishes to her.
