IN ALL THE HUBBUB I FORGOT TO MENTION:

I don't normally talk about myself; well, that's not really true, but I rarely talk about not-work at work. That combined with a little party we were pretty busy organizing for the last 6 months or so kept me from even mentioning that last month my first ever published comic book story came out. Through the good offices and kindness of my man Chris Pitzer at AdHouse Books, I have a 12-page story at the end of the recent Superior Showcase #3.

It's a terrible story, rushed, too long, and amateurish, but it was enormously educational, and has filled my head with ideas for more comics and improvements, and I'm super thankful to Chris for giving me such a primo opportunity. FORTUNATELY, for the scant $2.95 cover price, you also get two other stories, both of much higher quality, one by the excellent Jim Rugg, and the other by the exceptional Laura Park. Talk about good company for a debut!

While we initially ran out before the convention, I bought a ton of these for the store from Pitzer, so we've got them if you want them. Any customer who buys one in the store is welcome to a free sketch in theirs by me if they like--just ask. And if you live outside of the Charlotte area and are unfortunate to not have a quality comic shop that carries AdHouse's books, you can always order it direct from AdHouse itself. Although it would be more cost-effective for you if you also bought the recent acclaimed Skyscrapers of the Midwest hardcover at the same time. I'm just saying. You can mail order it from us as well: supply your own "bigger ticket item to justify shipping cost", although my suggestion one of the few signed Scott Campbell Indie Island prints we have left.

What if we bought one at the show with the hopes of getting it signed...do we get a sketch too?!

Bring it, Big Dog! I'm at work Monday through Friday until 6, except THIS Monday and Tuesday, where I'll be enjoying a long weekend for the first time in a long time.

Congrats on the long weekend! But you have to sign and sketch in mine when you get back Homie. Which was VERY entertaining btw! Good job and CONGRATS on that too!

Chris Pitzer said...

Heck. He wouldn't sketch in mine. (sniff)
