Immortalized in Comic Form
This is moderately cool: Old Man’s War featured in a comic strip. Here’s the whole thing. You can tell where my brain is because my first thought after “hey, that’s my name in a cartoon strip” was “I certainly hope that man was able to complete his sale before he was dragged off.” Yeah, what can I say. I’m a sales whore.
(Update: “Unshelved” co-creator Bill Barnes tells me that the strip takes place in a library, so there’s no purchase to conclude. Yes, but if the library has six copies, that’s still six copies sold, because, you know, they don’t give copies of the book to libraries for free. I still win! (Actually, I gave my local library a free copy. I’m a softy when it comes to libraries. And some of my favorite people are librarians. You know who you are, dahlinks.))
And as long as we’re on the subject: A nice write-up of the book over on Electric Minds.
