SONY Coronavirus…Hysteria

PAX East is a week away and SONY has decided to pull out of the convention over coronavirus (aka COVID-19) fears.

Seriously?

There’s only been one confirmed case in the state of MA.

So, SONY is more scared of the possibility – however small – of infection/spread of infection vs all the other nasty bugs you’re more likely to get at the convention which they obviously haven’t given two shits about if their past attendance and silence over cleanliness is any indication.

This is so ridiculous.

Aside from this hysteria and on a more positive note, my comic this week also features my love for Samezu the shark that loves to eat seals – check out the hat ah-Lin’s wearing. I also added the all important convention badge. I’m having more fun these days drawing.

Anyhow, have a great weekend and support your local Chinatown or Chinese restaurant and business!

This latest Empty Bamboo Girl comic appears in the February 21, 2020 issue of Sampan Newspaper, the only bilingual Chinese-English newspaper in New England.
