Comics Ate My Brain

Branching out

Because all the cool kids were doing it, I signed up for my own ComicSpace page. Now I am filled with a sense of validation and acceptance, and not quite sure what to do about it.

To steal a phrase from Tony Kornheiser, “I haven’t read it, but I hear it’s very good.”

  2. Don’t worry, the invite was genuine. How can someone with a Ron Stoppable avatar not be cool?Still, now that we’ve set up these pages, what do we do with them? How do we network? Do we haunt the new-member list, waiting for Plok, Jim Roeg, et al. (HINT HINT) to join so we can add them? I’m that lemming towards the back of the pack, asking his neighbor when the fun’s supposed to start….
