I swear times a million that this comic was drawn a full WEEK before Neil Gaiman (author of American Gods among many others) helped our class out with that DonorsChoose project.

Hey, do YOU want to be like Neil Gaiman? There’s only 32 days and less than $90 dollars left on this DC project! Give what you can?

I really, really, really enjoyed drawing today’s comic. Fact.

ALSO A FACT: Newbery Award winning author Neil Gaiman tweeted about one of my DonorsChoose projects last night, causing it to be INSTANTLY funded!

I am ridiculously excited; I’ve been a fan of Neil’s since I was reading The Sandman in high school and for him to take a moment out of his day to give my classroom a hand is amazing. Thank you so much Mr. Gaiman!

Ironically, I have a comic coming up on Thursday where one of my students extolls the greatness that is Gaiman’s American Gods… so it’s weird how that worked out!
