World Trade Center, New York City, October, 1975 — Jean-Pierre Laffont
Two homeless men squat in the shadow of the recently completed World Trade Center. New York City was on the verge of bankruptcy and the World Trade Center sat largely vacant, unable to find companies to fill its large office spaces.
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
Needed this today.

I don’t have time do a proper write up about Mondo Con as I am still playing catch up (as usual) but I wanted to quickly go over what I’ll have and where I will be.
I’ll be in the Kirby Hall at table T-2. In between the wonderful Scott C., and Jay Shaw. I’ll have all of these prints above. Plus SUPER Dicks of the 20th Century, and SUPER Dicks of Mondo Con. I’ll have APs of almost the entire Marvel show I did in April, as well as a new shirt, and some fun other things.
Also, just as a heads up, I will be in a panel about toys today from 11-12, and will be unavailable.
I’m probably forgetting something major, but yeah, I got all kinds of stuff! Swing by, say hello, have an amazing time. It’s gonna be great!
This week I was contacted about possibly being next year’s Ziploc spokesperson for upcoming new products. They were very sweet and asked what my fees would be if I was selected and so I quickly responded in the most professional way possible by clarifying that if the “new products” they’re offering include home-made waterbeds for cat then I expect royalties, because I invented those years ago.
The rest of my response:
I’m almost certain this would be a bad idea so I’m in, but only if Ziploc meets these conditions:
1) My fee of $100,000, or $200,000 worth of Ziploc bags. The Ziploc bags should be filled with $100,000.
2) The cat waterbed must be put into production, or at least a prototype made.
3) I’m going to need a human-sized ziplock bag that I can get in, so I can swim but not get wet. Something with an oxygen tank, preferably.
4) I don’t have a four but I think people take you more seriously when you have a four so I’m just going to leave this here.
Surprisingly, they have not responded.
Bonus: If you’re too tired to go back and read about cat waterbeds my talented friends made that post into a comic years ago. They pretty much nailed it.
