|Plug of the Week: on
Thursday, August 7 (i.e., tomorrow), I'll be doing a guest article
on graphic novels for Vulpes Libris, aliterary blog whose contributors
review books, interview authors, and write small essays on
literature-related themes. It is entirely possible that you
will recognise the style of the illustration that accompanies my
piece. I'm just sayin'.|
Update: The article is up now. Due to space issues, the accompanying cartoon came out tiny and hard to read...so I've posted a bigger version here.

|Panel 1: In the Davies College basement, Weird Beard is talking to Casey and Marie.|
Weird Beard: Well, it was nice meeting you all, but I'm afraid that now I must be off.
Casey: That's too bad. Where to?
Weird Beard: Who knows? I go where the wind takes me. Someday, somehow, I shall settle down...
Panel 3: He presses a hand to his heart.
Weird Beard: ...But not yet. Not yet.
Panel 4: Weird Beard walks away, grinning.
Weird Beard: I think the wind will take me back here next year, though.
Marie [muffled by Casey, who puts his hand over her mouth]: Nooommph.
Alt-Text: Sometimes, you react so violently to someone (whom others may find completely inoffensive) that you are prone to embarrassingly loud public outbursts in his or her presence. In such a situation, it's nice to have a friend who will shut you the hell up.
