    Your a braver man then I. It's only about an eight mile trip from my house to MoCCA, but the thought of venturing out into the steam room that is Manhattan this weekend when not absolutely necessary (work), turned me into a panting, sweating mess. PS It might have been worth it for for some Corsendonk Brown. Damn fine brew.

      The Corsendonk was excellent as always. So much so, in fact, that I had another on Sunday during the forced evacuation of the building.

    I did my con report for Newsarama, but I did enough stuff that I can blather on more about it here.My purchases included:–Picking up my copy of Fred Hembeck's new collection (review coming soon) with custom drawing of Soupy Sales chatting with Norbert at Pookie's window.–All three of Toon Books' current releases and a copy of the Little Lit reprint book–A singed copy of Drew Friedman's "Old Jewish Comedians", a collection that just shows that he is one of the finest caricaturists of our time. The details of these aged faces is just amazing.The Wife picked up a MoCCA t-shirt, a pair of Konjoined Kitties; plush siamese twin cats (the birth defect, not the breed) that are just adorable, and a copy of "Kool-Aid Gets Fired", a hilarious mini comic by Tim Piotrowski with some conceptual similarities to James Sturm's mini "The Cereal Killings".A nice kosher Deli dinner with Elayne at Fine and Schapiro, and we were on our way home with only a slight headache in payment to the oppressive heat of the day.

      Sounds like a great haul, Vinnie! I didn't see the Konjoined Kitties there… I might have to pick one up. (Or would it be "pick up a pair"?)I picked up my copy of Too Cool on Sunday, as well as a few pieces of webcomic merch. All in all, a good weekend.
