Anyway, my intrepid "Skin Horse" collaborator Shaenon Garrity lent me her copy of Norb while I was vacationing out West, and that particular itch was scratched to my satisfaction. Now I just need a friend who's a big fan of UK cartoonist David Whiteland, because I really very much want to get a glimpse at:
The Knot-Shop Man.
...But I don't want it enough to spend roughly $125.00 including overseas shipping. Pains me to admit, but it's the case. David Whiteland is my second-favorite cartoonist living, and he produces so catastrophically few books (Counting this as one book, a total of only three in the past decade). I hate that I'm going to miss one of them. But I guess I'm just not a $125.00-for-a-book level of fan. I have my limits.
So I ask of you: WHY DON'T ANY OF YOU ALREADY OWN A COPY OF THIS BOOK I CAN BORROW? I ask this because I am ungrateful, entitled, and cheap.
