Raconteur #7 is now available. And what is Raconteur you might ask? From the jacket:
Raconteur is a collection of true stories written and illustrated by cartoonists who usually specialize in other formats.
This issue features Mark Anderson, John Klossner, Mike Lynch, Rina Piccolo, and yours truly.
Having been a fan of the series from its beginning, I was thrilled when invited to participate in this number. My thanks to Mike Lynch and his fellow Raconteurs for including me.
