I had a very odd experience on Facebook a few months ago. I noticed an item posted by my friend Howard Cruse, about a new humor magazine called The American Bystander, which was mounting a crowdsource campaign to get into print. What struck me as odd was that I had been peripherally involved with a magazine by the very same name launched by National Lampoon editor Brian McConnachie in 1982 that never made it past prototype.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I will be at Wizard World’s Portland Comics Convention this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, signing books, selling original art and meeting fans (mostly other people’s, but I’m happy to say hello to anyone). I’m also booked for a panel this Saturday on Independent Comics, moderated by the esteemed writer and editor Danny Fingeroth, and with a truly stellar lineup of my fellow creators: Mike Allred, Shannon Wheeler, and Jonathan Hill.
