Oct 2: Jim Ottaviani at Air & Space

Jim Ottaviani, who writes comics about scientists, will be at the National Air & Space Museum at noon on Sunday, October 2, discussing his new biography, Feynman.

And to editorialize, Jim's a real sweet guy.

OT: Jim Ottaviani's T-Minus printing oddity

ComicsDC friend Jim Ottaviani recently wrote to a graphic novel librarian's list about the hardcover edition of his new book on the space race, T-Minus: The Race to the Moon.

His website says, "Glossary: If you have the nifty (but limited!) hardcover edition,
you'll want to grab the glossary here. Heck, you might want it even if you have the softcover edition, since it'll save you flipping back and forth."

In response to a question about that on the list, Jim noted, "Printing constraints led Aladdin to decide not to include the glossary on the hardcover. The softcover has it on the inside front and back covers.

I wish it were in both. It's a nice extra to have, so that's why I reformatted it to tuck neatly into the hardcover and made it available for download via .

Hopefully that's a useful bit of news for someone. I'll be buying the book from Jim at Heroescon in a couple of weeks.

Comic Riffs' Cavna on Pekar

Michael Cavna's got a nice post on Harvey Pekar online based on getting an advance copy of my Harvey Pekar: Conversations book. He found some words of wisdom in an interview with Harvey done by Jim Ottaviani and Steve Leiber for Hogan's Alley that Jim let me reprint in my book that's appearing soon. This is the first mention in 'print' of the book so I'm happy.
