Comic Book Cameo

One of our favorite comic books right now is Nodwick by Aaron Williams. It's the story of a group of adventurers in a Dungeons and Dragons-style world who are always going out and finding treasures, monsters, etc. — and it's a comedy! So, in the latest issue (#31, just came out last week), the gang is looking for an old henchman who used to work for them, and they interview a number of people in town on page 2. Some of them look very familiar. I recognized Harry Potter, a hobbit, Xena, a taunting French k-nig-it from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Dirk from the old video game Dragon's Lair. But who's that in the lower right hand corner?

Aaron Williams, you are a genius. Take a look at what else he's up to at http://ps238principal.livejournal.com/. Be especially certain to check out his other comic book, PS238, about a school for superhero kids. It's easily one of the best comic books being published today, and predates Sky High by at least a couple of years...
