Funny how stuff turns out sometimes.

I’d actually bought the comic above hoping my wife might be able to use it in her bilingual 1st grade classroom. (Turned out to be a bit old for her kids. I tried.)

I really liked the art, but I don’t speak Spanish, so it had taken up temporary residence on my scanner-top pile of mystery.

More here.

I gotta go buy this one ….

I had no idea! And I absolutely LOVE Tom’s True Story, Swear To God stuff!

I gotta find the English version! And QUICK!
