THING THE FIRST:
A plea to help a talented and aspiring Australian comic artist!
One of the internet providers here in Oz is running a contest to send someone on an all expenses paid trip to SDCC. Cass is in it, . and having the opportunity to meet people and show off her portfolio could be just what she needs. There’s no way she can make it to SDCC on her own costs wise, and it would be amazing to see her take this.
Please, please, please spread this around. She needs your help to win this!
