Sally Forth Comic Con: Come On Get Happy

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on July 22, 2018

I said this in an earlier post but when people talk about finding the meaning of life what that actually means is finding out what it truly means to feel alive. And a large part of feeling truly alive is celebrating what brings you joy. (Another part is remembering to bring more than one pair of shorts on vacation, as I forgot to do for our current San Diego Comic Con trip only to immediately spill coffee on said only shorts before the flight even left the runway, but I digress.) And Sally is doing just that, as she just can’t contain her excitement at meeting her childhood hero because that very excitement is what it means to be in touch with who she is. And that—when you remove the long lines and the crowds and the countless purchases—is what a Comic Con allows people to do. It helps them not only celebrate but also share a happiness and fandom that has always been a large part of who they really are.

And that very photo on Ted’s iPhone is based on this shot of my girlfriend Stacey very happy to meet Samantha Newark—the voice of her childhood hero Jem——at San Diego Comic Con in 2016.

    Wow, talk about life and art merging. I do wanna say that the insights you share with us about your life really do make the *experience* of Medium Large far more meaningful than *just* reading an always funny webcomic! Was not expecting the reveal of Samantha Newark being even more the basis of Starlee’s voice actress, visually.

    I am loving the Con storyline. Best one since the (very different) Ted’s dad dies storyline. One of my very fave strips every day! Thanks!!!
