New Gentleman Bastard today, and by the way, thanks for buying my BBQ book, which I assume you did because it came out on my birthday and you want me to be happy. If you’re in New York, I’ll sign your copy with someone else’s name and a drawing of an octopus.
This column on comic characters who survived the zeitgeist that made them was a lot more work than I expected it to be, considering I wanted to move to something fun and breezy after a spate of frothing sociopolitical satire. It ended up getting kicked back several times and down a spot.
Next week: something NSFW.
