Shaenon: Hey, it’s the pencils for AsLAN, Leo and H.T.’s comic strip, as drawn by the great Dirk Tiede. Speaking of which, things are heating up over in Dirk’s boss werewolf comic Paradigm Shift.

Channing: Dirk does great work, doesn’t he? This is exactly the feel I wanted from the updated AsLAN comic. And yes, do check out Paradigm Shift, if for no other reason than to be intimidated by the amount of visual research the man does. Seriously, dude knows what a phone scrambler secure-line device thing ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN REAL LIFE. I don’t even know the name for such a thing, which is why I call it a “phone scrambler secure-line device thing”.
