Action figure, comic book, or carbonite?

In an effort to have a legacy, every man has three dreams. We want to be made into an action figure, star in a comic, or be frozen in carbonite.

Since most of us are not actors or athletes -- the action figure is typically not an option. But with a bit of cash, you can have a custom bobblehead. And perhaps it's for the best that everybody but Han Solo can forget a life of suspended animation in frozen carbonite.

So that leaves us with the possibility of being a character in a comic strip. I'm excited to say that just such a thing has happened to me. Readers of Chris Howards' The Brick Side (a Far Side-inspired series of comic strips starring LEGO elements and minifigures) were able to enjoy my minifig alter-ego in a three strip story arc. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.

Congratulations on being stripped in public!

Wait, that isn't right.

Well, anyway, congratulations. See you in the funny papers!
