Every year as a kid, Thanksgiving meant Mighty Joe Young, King Kong, and Son of Kong. (http://www.dvddrive-in.com/holidayfilmfest.htm)
Here’s a comic about that! http://sobuttons.com/previews/so-chalk-it-up-to-konglateral-damage/ (art by Thomas Boatwright)

The tsunami was one year ago today.

I watched the tsunami from a hotel TV in Los Angeles. They broadcasted it live, but I don’t think they realized exactly what they were showing as the cars and homes were being eaten up by water. They didn’t show those exact moments again.  For me, it was a little like watching that plane go into the Trade Center and not realizing immediately that there were people inside. Just shapes hitting other shapes. 

I wrote this story for a charity anthology called Aftershock. It is still available and raising money: http://www.biguglyrobot.net/mailorder/
