"Abe" is Abe: Wrong for All the Right Reasons, by Glenn Dakin. The comic I'm holding is Monica's Story, Tom's strangely poignant dramatization of the Starr Report.

The Sands page is hanging over my bed now, along with the Bone sketch I won for naming the baby rat creature and a stained-glass gerbilfly Tiff Hudson made for me. I do have a pretty awesome bedroom. Anyway, Tom Hart helped me a lot as a cartoonist at a time when I was working hard to suck less, and it meant a lot to me that he saw something worthwhile in my comics. Still does. Thanks again and again, Tom!

Leon Arnott (l) says: It's always a moment of wonder when someone sends you original art without telling you beforehand.

The only meaningful boast I can make about my bedroom is my Wall O' Monkeys, which is exactly what you just imagined it to be, except half as wide.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: I am honored to be in such company.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Right now, the coolest thing I have is an autographed sticker from Meredith Gran, featuring Hannah from "Octopus Pie".  I sent her a fan art and she sent me the sticker, with a very nice encouraging note written on the back.

Little things like this are what keep you up at 2am finishing your latest page.  Work and hope, work and hope ...

I have never had an awesome bedroom. (Well, considered as a place to sleep, my bedroom is fine, but it contains no comics art whatsoever. It does have an awesome bed.)

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: Aww. That's cool. And it honestly still blows my mind that you named Bartleby. :)
Rachel S. (masamage) says: Wow, a stained-glass gerbilfly? That sounds excellent. I want to see it~
Brian Rogers (billionsix) says:

You named Bartleby? Wow! I never knew that!

Somehow, you have become even cooler!
