    And then my agent told me, “Write what you know if you want to get anything published.”
    Who would’ve guessed she wanted me to write a zombie novel?
    Oh we’ll, live and learn….

    And so I said, ‘No, really, if I have to listen to another acceptance speech, I’m going to turn into a zombie.’ How’d you get the teeth?

    “Low energy, huh? It’s the preservatives in their food I tell you, messes with their blood. Did I ever tell you how good they were back in the ’80’s…”

    Congratulations on your wonderful news, Debbie! I couldn’t be happier for you.

    Here’s my take on your comic:

    That’s what I overheard them say, Stan! Vampires, out. Zombies, out. But Creature from the Black Lagoon? They’re all clamoring for him! It’s enough to make me lose my head, I’m telling ya.
