Thompson transported from Heroes Con directly to Washington Post

Richard and I drove in from a great time at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC (posts and pics to follow) to discover that his strip Cul de Sac has taken the spot of the canceled Single And Looking strip in the Post as of today. Whoo-hoo! He's finally in his hometown paper every day. And now twice on Wednesday and Saturday. Hmmm... Has anyone ever seen him and Donald Graham at the same time?

In the meantime, Tom Spurgeon's coverage of Heroes Con largely mirrors mine, except he knows and interviewed more people. Richard and I had a very pleasant conversation in him at the Westin's bar on Saturday night, and we both agree that Tom's one of the best writers and critics around. We both read his site every day, and you should too. And I'm not just saying that because he likes Cul de Sac - some of the very best years of The Comics Journal (which has had a lot of great material in it) were when he was editing it.
