Editor’s Panel Fountainheads of static electricity, Shuffle your noggin along this field of comics and you are assured to receive one mussy batch of hair. You might think this is just because paper is a solid substance with the ability to displace hair follicles upon contact. Well, you’d be right, but there’s more to the story! These particular papers constitute the first-ever Pile-o’-Rugs edition of The Drawing Board. This issue was at least subconsciously inspired by Houghton College’s resident coffee shop, especially that one one corner of a rug that trips hapless passersby at a rate of 1.7 people per minute. Thanks for all the spontaneous roller coaster simulations, Rugsy!


Gravitationally, Leah
