The Penguin Emperor
This one’s a major departure for me, because I don’t like the topical stuff. I also don’t like jokes about the comics community or any other self-referential “in” jokes, but I feel like the return of Berke Breathed is broad enough news that even people who don’t read the comics have heard about it.
Which is precisely the point. The guy was great and he sold six million books, but why should the hype machine be at his disposal now? It wasn’t easy living in DC when Michael Jordan was back.
Also, I’m sorry this isn’t MORE topical, but working a month ahead puts me at kind of a disadvantage that way.
