The Small World of Comics


Went to see a friend’s film last night at the AFI Fest – ended up bumping into Christopher “Superman” Dennis of Grauman’s Theater and Confessions of A SuperHero fame. I have heard good things about that documentary – but have not seen it. I got a decent pic of myself with Christopher taken by someone else I bumped into there – the one and only Abhay Khosla of The Savage Critics! Small world indeed! – Chip
