Wednesday’s Cool Jerk signing at Burbank’s House of Secrets was terrific. Erik and Paul (the owners of HoS) are übermensch and their shop flat-out kicks ass. Patton Oswalt stopped in twice, but alas, no Cool Jerk for him. Was kinda hoping the cast from The Big Bang Theory would wander in (Darlene and I were part of the live-studio audience the night before).

It was grueling, having to hang out IN A COMICS SHOP FOR 9 AND A HALF HOURS! And even though the weather was frightful (torrential flooding, lightning, waterspouts, locusts), I’d estimate close to 300 people stopped in to get their weekly four-color hook-ups. A testament to how awesome House of Secrets is.

Special thanks to all the people that stopped by my display and/or picked up a book or two: Jenn (and for bringing in her cupcakes), Sarah, Jodi, Ed, Todd, Dan, Jared, Drew, Rob, Art, Chris, Daniel and Amy (House of Secrets’ ambassador of good will — see photo)!

    I read your second book Chickadoowa and I have to say, it’s really funny. It reminds me of Bloom County but only in the most superficial way. I like to imagine it running in the newspaper next to crap like Beetle Bailey and Cathy. That makes it 30% more enjoyable!
