It's your money that we want, and your money we shall have!

Can we have a Very Serious Discussion here?  Now, as you may be aware, these days you can buy Disney comics from Comixology; it used to be that you could only read them on an ipad or whatnot, but now you can just use any plain ol' web browser.  No links here, for reasons that will become obvious.

Tooting my own horn a bit...

I would like to note that this afternoon I defended my dissertation and received my PhD, hopefully quieting any nagging doubts that this blog may not be the work of a Professional.  What do you have to say about this turn of events, Herr Professor Von Drake?

I was thinking: what can I do on this blog to commemorate this occasion?  There isn't exactly a surfeit of graduate-school-related Disney comics, though, is there?  Or ANY, as far as I'm aware.  Correct me with I'm wrong.  Well, whatever; I have some material for the near future that we can pretend was specifically meant for this, as opposed to just being stuff I would've posted anyway.  For starters--you oughta like this--I finally had the wherewithal to scan the English version of Carpi's "That Missing Candelabra," which you can download here.  And you SHOULD, 'cause it's super-awesome.

Anyway, more later.
