Indonesian Smile 


I got copies of the Indonesian translation of The Eternal Smile a while ago, but I didn't flip through it until just now. They did a beautiful job on the production values-- it's kinda crazy seeing your own work in a language you don't understand. Ever wonder what a splash sounds like in Indonesia?



Speaking of The Eternal Smile, Amazon.com is offering the original English version for the amazing price of $6.61! Not bad for an Eisner nominee, right? (Er. Only a third of the book is nominated for an Eisner, but still. It's only a third of the original price!)

The Rise of the Graphic Novel 
On the evening Monday 4/26, The Commonwealth Club will be hosting a panel discussion on Why Comic Books, Being So Freaking Awesome, Are Taking Over The Whole Freaking World (or as they put it, "The Rise of the Graphic Novel") with Lark Pien, Andy Hartzell, Dash Shaw, and me! Should be fun. Tickets are $7 if you're a student and $20 if you're not. You have to show school ID so you can't just say you're a student of life.

Want details? Go here.
