Last week, we were treated to a visit from Xan’s childhood friend Sara, along with Sara’s son Gavin and Debbie, her mother. Sara, who is expecting her second child, grabbed a lightsaber(something you can actually do in our house) and posed for the photo below…

Gavin had a great time playing with our old action figures, which we keep in a drawer in the studio for just such occasions.

Later, an exhausted Jess-Belle climbed into the action figure drawer for a little rest…

On Sunday, Xan, her mom Lin and I all drove to Debbie’s home in Dayton to visit some more with Sara and Gavin, who are in from Toronto. We also got to spend time with Sara’s brother Eric, their aunt Marcy(who brought her famous peanut butter fudge), and our friend Sherry and her son Ben, and Sherry’s sister Sally. Good times.

We may get to see Sara again soon if we actually make it to the Toronto Comicon in April, where I think I’m supposed to be a guest. I’m listed on the website for the show, but I haven’t heard from the organizers since the initial invitation was extended last year, so it seems a little uncertain at this point. Here’s a link to the Toronto Comicon’s site. Stay tuned…

Speaking of links, here’s a strange little thing I found today. Scroll down a bit and you’ll find a reference to a scene I drew in Midnighter #3.

  1. As if there wasn’t enough geekiness already in that top photo, how about this bit of trivia: note the blanket next to Xan’s mom on the sofa…it’s a Return Of The Jedi comforter. Incidentally, this exact make of comforter is used in an episode of the late, great and prematurely cancelled Fox TV series Wonderfalls, where it is referred to as both a “teddy-bear blanket’ and “ewok linen!”
