Philcon finally got a schedule to me. I reproduce it below in the unlikely event anyone wants to see me jabber.
I'm particularly terrified by the panel which has the following three panelists: 1) Me; 2) A Hugo award winner; 3) A winner of the Campbell award and four Hugo awards. I think I will be sitting quietly and hoping no one in the audience notices I'm on that panel.

That sure is an abrupt transition between city streets and Embassy Row, huh? Oh well. On the plus side, I find myself still rocking the two-panel format and I'm really liking it. It certainly offers lots of opportunities for drawing AWESOME BACKGROUNDS (tm) which make the comic look a thousand times better.
In other news: Our competition is over! The car Liraz stole is a Volga GAZ-24 station wagon. If Wikipedia can be believed, this vehicle was considered so stylish and powerful that the Soviet government restricted its purchase only to approved individuals. This says all you need to know about the Communist system, really. Snarking aside, we had three winning entries, the senders of which will be publicly congratulated in this space along with a plug for the website of their choice, just as soon as they all get back to us with the sites they'd like to advertise, nudge, nudge, hint, hint.
