Think about it. It’s pretty true. Oh, sure, the plots are different, the genres are different and the like, but there are a lot of fundamental similarities, for sure.

In unrelated news, most of you know that San Diego Comic-Con is this weekend. Stan and I will both be there. You can find Stan at the Squid Works booth (K-12 )in the Small Press Pavilion, and you can find me one row over in L-13 at the Action Lab Entertainment booth. Oh, I’m sure I’ll wander over to Stan and sign some books together, but if you happen to be looking for us, we’re not far apart. We’ll have all sorts of goodies for sale, and you can buy books 1-3 of the Webstrips for only $25 (save $5!). Come by, say hello, and give us a small bit of your hard-earned cash.
