While wandering around merrie olde London in May, my pal Paulette Marty came upon Orbital Comics, a famous comics shoppe which is part of a chain that also includes a manga bookstore and a shop for designer toys. Paulette strolled into Orbital, approached the clerk, and said, in her Minnesotan accent, "I don't read comics, but I have a friend in North Carolina who loves them. I don't know what comics he needs or has. Do you have something--something locally produced, maybe--that'll be a surprise for him?" That's how I got a copy of the BP (banal pig) portrait prize anthology, published and edited by the endearingly off-kilter Steven Tillotson.
