Bring me the (editorial) head of the New Yorker

Here's a link to part of iFanboy's coverage of the San Diego Comic-con, during which a couple of the usual suspects turn up and gurn at the camera.

And from the notebook:

Idea for a one panel cartoon #256
A close up of a digital clock-radio-alarm on a bedside table. The digital clock reads 06:59. A large SQUID TENTACLE is reaching in from out of shot to thump the "snooze" button.
Caption: The Kraken wakes.

Idea for a one panel cartoon #309
A collectors fair or car boot sale. A banner reads "Records and CDs". A glum stall holder looks on as DARTH VADER thumbs through old albums in a box marked "Artists A to Z".
Caption: "I find your lack of Faith No More disturbing."

Liking it very much. You should put these out in a 'Bunny Suicides' style book for Christmas.

"The Random Ramblings of The Abnett Clones."
