Sometimes when someone is so determined to crash and burn, it’s hard to chime in and stop them.
Hey, for animal lovers out there, in case you didn’t know, the shark industry has gotten way out of hand. And the shark fin trade in California represents about 85 percent of the total U.S. shark fin consumption. So, the California senate passed AB 376 will would BAN shark finning there IF Governor Brown signs it.
Gov. Brown OF CALIFORNIA will likely make his final decision on Wednesday, so if you want to help push this forward, there is something you can do:
CALL 916-445-2841, OPTION 1 for English, and OPTION 6 to reach a representative. PLEASE ASK GOV. BROWN TO VOTE YES ON AB 376 to BAN shark finning in California.
I remember thinking I should try to find some odd date thing where Henry-Henry would theoretically sometimes appear in the sky, but realized it would be way too much math and organizing and really didn’t add more to the strip. Ever 13th full moon sounded pretty cool and was vague enough to work.
Ah, more strangeness. But the reality, i think most of us with good hearts, if given great power, would try (at least at first) to use it for what we thought was the good.
I wanted to really play with the cast of Little Dee here, by not only handling a somewhat gruesome ghost story (largely inspired by such early books as Frankenstein and Jeckyl & Hyde), but also by playing with themes such as the literary double and a narrator within a story.
Blake’s unaware deadpan in this strip still slays me. :)
SPX was a grand time. Ahhhh! And now I’m on the late bus back to my brother’s. Zoom! Blogging from the bus — so, a con report will have to wait until wednesday’s strip.
And I won’t be in Seattle for it, but the 17th is the annual “Pigs For Peace” walk at Greenlake, and my sweetie Beth is walking, so please donate, and know a donation for her walking is like for me walking (only I’m only there in spirit). They’re an organization who takes care of potbelly pigs (among other animals) who were pets and were poorly treated or not wanted, and so now they have a good home.
