Comic book boys

August 3, 2002

comic book boys: those who make them and those who read them, oh, and even those who live in them. i love them all. you may think they're all just a buncha big fat nerds, but i tell you, they are sweet (sometimes dreamy!) boys who are giddy about something they adore, and i of all people can relate to that.

today, i went to the comic-con in san diego and fell in love. i told miguel, i only wish i had read more of them, so that i could do the event justice rather than just wander around aimlessly. as it were, i came with the intention of meeting adrian tomine and sam brown (missions accomplished, with sketches & books & posters to prove it). i was overwhelmed by everything and everyone else.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
