 This morning brings the welcome and pleasant news that Peter David, writer of stuff, will be doing an in-depth conversation about comics and art with Danny Fingeroth on June 5 at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art. This news is appreciated for two reasons: One, Danny and Peter will have an epic discussion on comics issues; and two, I'm so happy to hear that Peter is recovering from the stroke he suffered at the end of 2012. It's good to see these two comics luminaries preparing for a talk. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door; you can purchase tickets here.

We waited two-and-a-half hours to get inside here so we could meet you.”
