Jhonen Vasquez (@JhonenV) and @rejectsuprstar circa 11 years ago. I was indeed dressed as a ninja for that picture.
@rikkisimons there? AX2k timetravel. This was back when he was more indie, while he was secretly working on ZIM…so his booth wasn’t swarmed in the least. Meant I got to have a nice long chat with Jhonen and his team.
He started explaining the backstory to “I Feel Sick” to me, but I told him I already knew who Devi was. I’d already read all the JTHM back issues. He seemed pleasantly surprised.
I apologize for the picture quality. It was taken on a SONY Mavica, the dinosaur of digital cameras. I found this among a stack of floppy disks last week.
