Description of Pictures: Jonathan Roth, Paul Noth -- In the latest in Roth's "Beep and Bob" series, Bob explains Halloween to Beep, who is over the moon with anticipation. Beep's space friends descend on the school, demanding Take Us to Your Sugar. A middle school science experiment goes terribly wrong creating a black hole that will engulf planet Earth unless Hap finds a solution quickly, in Noth's "How to Properly Dispose of Planet Earth."
Note: Paul Noth was also at the presentation but I didn't catch any pictures of his presentation. Sorry! I did catch him during the Children's Workshop though.
Latest Title: Take Us to Your Sugar (Beep and Bob)

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
