Shaenon: Remember, back during the maternity-leave guest strips, there was a storyline (drawn by the wonderful Elena Diaz) involving adorable zombie-plant hedgehogs in Colma?  Well, there was.  Now our colorist and book designer, Pancha Diaz, who has a plethora of amazing skills and is also Elena’s sister, has knitted me a biomass hedgehog.  How cute is this guy?


Thank you so much for this and everything, Pancha.

Channing: EEE! HEDGIES!!! I’m so excited! Okay, clearly that’s going to be the limit of my coherency tonight. Thank you so much to the Sisters Diaz, Pancha for the adorable plushie, and Elena for working with me on the original.
