I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr. Malki at San Diego Comic-Con last week, but this strip is forcing me to reconsider the sincerity of his remarks …
Me: So, you’re THE David Malki?
Malki: I am. You should be impressed.
Me: Cool. I love your work.
Malki: Thank you. I’m honored by your praise.
Me: My family thinks there’s something wrong with me for liking it so much.
Malki: OK. Well, move along now, sir.
Me: Could you sign this Wondermark book, ‘To my Number 1 fan’?
