I saw this on the Internet the other day, and I thought it was pretty cool and endearingly nerdy, so I’ll sign off for the weekend with this.

LOTS of stuff getting posted next week. Orion’s got some great reviews and columns in the pipeline, and I’ve got some terrific Q&As that I think a lot of comics folks will dig.

Have a good weekend!
