I try to follow Elmore Leonard’s No. 8 Rule of Writing - avoid detailed descriptions of characters - so I’ve put items in Barnaby’s room so you can discover who he is, or who you think he is, without huge talk bubbles wasting precious panel space. But I violate Elmore’s Rule No. 5 - you are allowed no more than two or three exclamation points for every 100,000 words of prose - on a daily basis! Right here!! Sorry, Elmore.
Blink is a spooky and sad episode of Doctor Who written by Stephen Moffat from Season Two with David Tennant (sniff) and Freema Agyeman chock full of so many quotable quotes I’d need a “big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey . . . stuff” to list them all. I do have a tee-shirt which reads “Well... four things and a lizard.” I can only see the actress Carey Mulligan, who is now in loads of movies, as Sophie Sparrow!

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
