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!)

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.
