Walter Mencken 9:21 p.m., Oct. 20
Longtime Reader readers may recall your humble correspondent's middling efforts at single-panel cartooning. (I still think Mudflap Girls was a solid comedic concept, but don't let that scare you off.) The apotheosis of the single-panel gag (with the possible exception of The Far Side) is, of course, The New Yorker. And Gahan Wilson is one of the elder gods of that particular Olympus.
Of course, it's not all wry gags about death...
You get the idea. ANYWAY, when you ascend to these particular heights, people start having things to say about you. And sometimes, people record those things on film. Which brings us to this Comic-Con screening, Sunday at noon in Mariott Hall 1 & 2 at the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina Hotel. I'll be there, but again, don't let that scare you off.
