Ladygunn Magazine: Blind Date with Jeffy

Ladygunn Magazine invited me to go on a blind date as part of their comics issue…

blinddate5Everyone gets ‘the call’ at least once in a lifetime. You know, the one where your best friend is like, “you have to go on a blind date with this dude, and I have to live vicariously through you because I have a boyfriend  and who wouldn’t want to date a comic book store manager?”

That’s exactly what I did to our Art Director Allison Pauline when I set up her up with Jeff, manager of the famous ‘Forbidden Planet’ comic book store in Union Square.

Jeff is over an hour late on a rainy Sunday, to meet Allison at Brooklyn’s ‘Sweet Revenge’, a bar . Black-leather-clad, she sits waiting patiently. Every so often, she’ll look over at the door suspiciously, while I smile demurely and shrug my shoulders (I’m only there to document the event).

When he finally does arrive, he turns up also sporting a carcass, black leather too. Jeff is cuter than expected. They meet, they greet, they blinddate!

Also be sure to eplore the rest of Ladygunn’s site while you’re at it.  The rest of the comic issue features Harvey Pekar, Alison Bechdel, and Joe Matt.  Pretty terrific company.
