Frozen by Jim Shoenbill at 10/12/14 22:08 PM

.. Saw Disney's "Frozen" for the first time this weekend. Two thoughts:

1. I amused myself by imagining Yukon Cornelius showing up at any moment.

2. With the city in grave peril of being frozen for eternity, I just kept thinking "those people are going to get ice dams".

Just got back from Barnes & Noble. The Suzanne Somers section was as big as the comic strips section. Sad, sad, sad.

Kenosha Cartoon Festival by Jim Shoenbill at 09/07/14 10:16 AM

There is a great event coming up: The Kenosha Festival of Cartooning, being held from September 26-28.

I could claim that Kenosha was chosen as the locale because it's my hometown. But really it' because the phenomenal festival organizers are Anne Morse-Hambrock and John Hambrock, who currently call Kenosha home.

The Kenosha News is also a really cool newspaper because it prints daily comics in COLOR!

Anyone going?
