It’s true that when the world did not end when I predicted it would, at the end of last year, in my Netflix special Ragnarok, I realized a number of things, one of which was that I had not made a lot of professional or creative plans on the contingency that the world would continue. I just figured that it would end.
I am so happy for Junot Diaz and so incredibly jealous that he got Jaime Hernandez to illustrate the new edition of THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER.

That is all.
John Hodgman seal of approval!
