"Artists don't draw reality, they encode it."- MOEBIUS

Just getting in from NYCC and was able to meet my art hero Frank Quitely….just a mind blowing experience. I also picked up this famous illustration he did of Alan Moore…I have no words.

If anyone wants to try and lose some weight this month me and some twitter followers are using the hashtag #HightTbyNYCC to post fitness updates, set backs, and verbally abuse each other into not being fat asses. It worked pretty well when we all tried to lose weight by SanDiego Comicon…I ended up putting those who participated in the background of Manhattan Projects. If anyone new plays along I’ll do the same, just use the hashtag so we can all find your updates. Men and women and whoever else can play along…the only requirement is you can’t be a overly sensitive pussy. End date is Oct 9th the date of New York Comicon…so you have a month to lose 5-10 lbs and achieve that elusive High-T.

There’s something to be said about a comic that assembles a cast of some the most famous names in science, weaves a disturbingly funny alternate (or maybe just “secret”?) history of warfare and scientific exploration in the 20th century, and then grinds to a halt in order to spend an issue focusing on the humanity and friendship shared between an alien (Enrico Fermi) and an irradiated skeleton (Harry Daghlian).
