Link with 8 notes
Oh, wow! Our first official review, from the Portland Mercury! And the release party is a staff pick!
Waiting for October collects 53 pages of comics, prose, illustration, and—yes—even haiku. Standouts include a piece by Lindsey Clark-Ryan titled “Six Degrees of Pete: In Which I Link the Highest Paid Actors of 2011 to The Adventures of Pete & Pete,” which proceeds to do exactly that; a Nightcrawlers membership card (“Sleep is for the puny”); and series of Kreb Scout Merit Badges. The tone of the entries fittingly waffles between enthusiastic homage and desperation-tinged nostalgia—Jaclyn D. Miller’s comic strip, The Best Writing in Television History, culminates in Miller tearfully embracing her television set, exclaiming “I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH.”
