Save us from ourselves!

TCAF, you guys! It was so much fun, thanks for coming if you came, and come next time (2011, y'all) if you couldn't this year. I met all sorts of great people as usual, including Steve Wolfhard, Excellent Dude, Scott McCloud, Comics Superstar & Chip Zdarsky, Multimedia Empresario. Erika Moen and Lucy Knisley were here too, whoa! You can see Jeffrey Rowland's account of the weekend starting right here, watch for famous cameos...

For our post-weekend relaxation, we watched the most excellent animated movie, Sita Sings the Blues. I highly recommend it if you like adorable 20s music and gorgeous animation, with a side of some really interesting copyright issues. You can watch it here for free!

The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.

It's a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:

We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you aren't alone in the world.

The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.
