Dave Lasky and Martha Burns were at Big Planet Comics Bethesda this week, with Dave signing his graphic biography on The Carter Family and Martha Burns performing their songs. Since she was performing, I didn't get a chance to talk to him and ask about the book, but I did get the only copy of Oregon Trail they had in the store.
Afterwards I stopped across the street at South Street Steaks and avoided the Misteak Challenge. My Italian sub was just fine though.

rational way to say coal-fueled power plants have a choice to comply
with EPA regulations, they asked us to create an animation in the
"whiteboard" genre. We enlisted popular cartoonist Teresa Roberts
Logan to lend her clever hand to the project.
Written, produced and created by the Story Store Media team.
