Scott Lobdell's Puppy!

Scott Lobdell walked through our doors today with a 7 week old puppy!!  Needless to say the whole office had to stop and play with him.  Scott is still deciding what to name him though.  Right now it's either between Baxter and Phoenix but Peter says he looks like Falcor from Neverending Story so we want Scott to call him FALCOR!!!! Do it!

Don't be sad...we mostly play nice, mostly.
Aspen Comics got a new intern today!  Alex gets to stay with us for a little over a month and to get to know him better we asked him 5 crucial questions:

Aspen:  What are your favorite comics?
Alex:  Preacher, Sleeper, Powers, Blankets, Alias, and True Story, Swear to God

Aspen:  Favorite candy?
Alex:  Frosted animal crackers 
Aspen:  Not even sure that's a candy as we've never heard of it...but awesome.

Aspen:  Favorite Disney animated feature? (not including Pixar)
Alex:  ...fumbling on the computer looking for a list of Disney movies...Mulan

Aspen:  If you could choose from the following butlers to serve you who would it be?  Alfred, Mr. Belvedere, a trained monkey, Geoffrey from Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Lurch from Addams Family, Riff Raff from Rocky Horror Picture Show, or Smithers?
Alex:  Geoffrey

Aspen:  And finally...can you draw a sparkly pony?
Alex:  Yeah sure
Aspen:  Great, have it on my desk by the end of the week.

Yay!  We look forward to slave driving...I mean working with him.
