I see Saruman was at the Fantagraphics Bookstore Anniversary party on Saturday. It’s good to see him getting out of Isengard more. [Via twitter but lost the link!]

    I assume that’s Mary Woodring, although I don’t know for sure.

    Isn’t that Ian McKellan as Gandalf? Isn’t that quote Yoda?

    I assume that’s an appropriately nerdy response. I have a feeling I’m missing the joke.
