Hmm. Looks like Scott McCloud will be speaking on Tuesday at my alma mater (in my old department, no less.)
If you're in Atlanta (I know of at least one semi-regular reader who is) then by all means, try to swing by campus. I had the honor of introducing Scott as the keynote speaker at an AOL Design Summit a few years back, and his talk was every bit as engaging as his books.
psst - If they try to turn you away at the door, tell them you're close personal friends with Thomas Winn.
