Now I feel ashamed. I've read Wrinkle In Time, but my first thought is that he was Tom Baker Doctor Who. The hat really should have tipped me off, it's kinda girlie.

Oh dear, I think I'm going to need to run too. My mom's been telling me to read it for the last 20 years and I never have.

I knew he looked familiar! Is there a story behind this one?

One of my favorite books as a kid. But people who don't read any sci fi or fantasy aren't going to read this classic.

I'd have that reaction too, probably. (The shock, not the obliviousness.) Usually my "are you serious" reactions are strongest when dealing with C.S. Lewis or Tolkien, though, not with L'Engle.

Just came upon your site. Love this. Named my daughter Madeleine in part because I love the whole Wrinkle in Time series.

Sigh... Oh, how your comics make me laugh. Or, you know, feel sorry when something horrible happens to a piece that one of the characters is writing. But still, I worship your series.

I haven't read Wrinkle In Time. Oh dear-No Micheal don't kill me!!!
It sounds good. A fantasy book with a strangely dressed person in it...well i don't know much about it, but i'll give it a go!
My first thought was a bad Fourth Doctor costume, i admit. The coat and the scarf fit, but the hat wouldn't.
I love these comics. Tehy're great!
