There Are The Normal People, And Then.

Finally got to do final editing and illustrations on our fatty liver booklet along with Hurricane K, and this early we are telepathically coercing you to buy the book because all proceeds will go to Sagip-Buhay. Sagip-Buhay is cool because it helps a lot of our poor patients and such, and it also saves us residents from major headache, despair, and the desire to slash our wrists from all the thinking on where to get money. But ultimately our goal is to be in the Dewey Decimal System.

And just a couple of weeks ago we turned in our latest draft to Sir Guy Gardner over lunch. With much trepidation I also showed him my illustrations for the booklet.

"Our book is serious but the illustrations look a little... cartoony," he said.


"Aheheheheh," I sheepishly giggled-mumbled as I noted the elvish ears of the chronic liver disease patient vomiting blood.
"You know these look like something out of a comic book," Sir Guy Gardner said. "You know I know a lot of comic book artists. There are normal people, and then there are the comic book people. They read a lot of comic books. They go to conventions and they buy these comicbooks and they buy action figures, and they..."

Hurricane K shot me a glance. In our heads: AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH!
