Is there a connection?

As co-publisher for Potlatch: Comics to Benefit the CBLDF, Stan Yan ended up with an inordinate number of these books in his basement.

Much to Yan’s surprise, people have become growingly suspicious that they are getting something that big for free. Whadda they have to worry about? That’s what this story, The Potlatch Infestation is about. Starring characters from Yan’s The Wang series. Mature (13+). Click on image to the left for more information.
