Conventions and other Horror Stories
June 28, 2013
Holy crap, the year's half over. I better get back to making blos, huh?
So, do you like horror comics? Spike Trotman of Templar, AZ has a KickStarter running for an anthology of horror comics. The book, titled,
"Sleep of Reason", features such cartoonists as KC Green of
Gunshow, Evan Dahm of Rice Boy, Ainsley Seago,
Savannah Horrocks, and many more...
Including me. Yup, I'm gonna have a story in it. So go look the KickStarter, check out the previews of some of the stories that'll be in the book and, if you like it, consider backing
Now, convention stuff. Last year I skipped Comic-Con in San Diego. This year, however, I'll be in Blind Ferret's booth at Comic-Con International on
July 18-21, booth #1231. I'll also be in Blind Ferret's booth at GenCon in Indianapolis on August 15-18... and possibly
at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto, August 22-25. Yup, my first Canadian convention. More on that later.
Oh, and if you enjoyed ComfyCon last year (the online "convention" Danielle Corsetto and I ran since we had to miss San Diego), don't worry. It's coming back in Autumn, and hopefully
bigger and with more cartoonists.
Lastly, if you've ever wanted to own a piece of Something*Positive art, posters from "The Last Trick-or-Treaters," or just wanted to offer a few bucks, please consider checking out
my art store. Purchases help me pay my bills, which in turn calms me down and helps me do comics (not to mention makes sure I can still make
them). Thanks! -R.
Mythos and a Show in the Desert
May 20, 2013
So, Erica Henderson is an amazing artist. Just look through her blog or tumblr and you'll see how
amazing her art is. She and her dad, author CJ Henderson, did a book a few years ago called, "Baby's First Mythos." I happen to have a copy of the
original printnig and love it. Erica and CJ are currently have a Kickstarter going to reprint the book with new art
and additional content. Give it a look.
This week (Thursday through Sunday, to be exact), I'll be in Phoenix, Arizona for Phoenix Comicon, at booth #792 with Danille Corsetto of
Girls With Slingshots and Spike Trotman of Temlar, AZ and
Poorcraft. Phoenix Comicon is one of my favorite shows and I look forward to it all year long. We
won't be the only webcartoonists there, either. You can also find Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary (booth 896), as well as David Willis of
Shortpacked and Dumbing of Ages and Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue over in
booth 1749. David Malki of Wondermark, Christ Yates of the Baffler and other Awesomeness, and Jeffrey Rowland
of Overcompensating will be in TopatoCo's booth, #453. John Troutman of a lot of
stuff will be there as well, but I'm not sure where.
Looking forward to seeing some of you there! -R.
