Despite my best intentions -- also lacking the time and a plane ticket -- I'll be very sorry about missing this weekend's Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda, Md., one of the most enjoyable weekends of any year fo

I've seen the spontaneous combustion that comes when comics geeks have that rare chance meet their all-time fav writer/artist. You've probably practiced the moment in a mirror a thousand times, and knew it
