WONDERCON 2011 & MORE!!!

Hello True Believers!

WonderCon 2011 is next weekend (April 1-3) in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. I will be there in full force with my lil buddy Mr. JD Arnold (writer on BB Wolf) at the Top Shelf Productions booth. We will actually be IN CHARGE of the booth for the entire weekend.

Yes, you read that right..."In charge" for the entire weekend.

I know! I couldn't believe it either.

So, since they've handed me the keys you can expect OUTRAGEOUS DEALS, DISCOUNTS and sloppy wet kisses at the bar after the con. I'm taking 10, 20, 50 and even 100% off certain items!!!! Weeeeee!!!!! So make sure to stop by the Top Shelf booth.

In other more recent news I will also be signing at Comicopolis in downtown Santa Cruz tomorrow, March 25th. Comicopolis is located at 814 Front Street. I'll be signing alongside fellow artist/cartoonist/writer, Jon "Bean" Hastings and a portion of our sales will be going to local schools. Cuz we're just that nice.

OH! I should also mention that I have some nifty new items available. The brand spankin' new "Voltron: United and Drawn" coffee table book which I contributed to as well as some new Archie comics.

I will also be previewing (for the very first time!) concept art for the upcoming TROLLS series. Trolls was recently picked up at Dreamworks for a feature animated film to be tentatively released in 2014 (I think) and I'm working alongside the head honchos on the publishing end of things. So I've got some cool art to show off for anyone interested.

Other than that I have a few new books in the works and by Comic-Con should solidify any announcements.

ALSO! My good buddy Russ Colchamiro who authored the fantastic novel, Finders Keepers, has been getting rave reviews from many highly regarded reviewers including Publishers Weekly!!! The PW review was so good that it led us to a distributor SPU (Small Press United) who we have just signed with! This is extremely good and exciting news as anyone who knows about publishing knows that distribution is vital. And getting picked up by a distributor is often quite a daunting and difficult task. SO, Finders Keepers will be distributed now nation-wide!

So if you haven't ordered your copies yet do us a favor and ask your local bookstore to carry the book. Order from them now. Russ and I will certainly appreciate it.

But you can still get it here, folks, if you'd prefer. So act now before the limited first printings (only 2,000) are all gone and Russ becomes an international phenomenon!

A'ight, that's about all for now I think.

TIDBITS, NOTIONS & ER...STUFF

Greetings,

First of all I have been asked by a few readers if I will be attending this year's WONDERCON in San Francisco April 1-3 at the Moscone Center. YES! And if you have not seen my name posted in their releases it is because I will be running the Top Shelf Booth this year with sidekick JD Arnold. Chris and Brett were not planning on doing the show this year but we convinced/cajoled them into letting US run it for them since we're relatively close by. AND THEY AGREED!!!! HA HA HA...

Man, the deals we will be cutting! The POWER!

So stop by at WonderCon and take advantage of those ridiculous deals we'll be slinging.

In other news...

Daughter Stella celebrated her 9th birthday this past week. She is still as awesome as ever...perhaps even awesomer. 'Course it reminds me, once again, that I'm getting older and slower...that and the fact that my neck, back, hip and shoulder always hurt. But whatever, she's the only medicine I need to make all those nagging annoyances be forgotten.

In other news...

JUSTIFIED is back on tv so I finally have something to watch again. It hasn't been as good as it's Freshman season (we're hoping it's just the typical "Sophomore slump") but there have been moments of greatness so we're not giving up yet. Our biggest beef is that all-of-a-sudden Raylan's letting the dimwit hillbilly thugs get the drop on him! That's the whole "thing" that made Raylan so damn cool!... He had that inane sixth sense for those things and NO ON ever got the drop on him. In 4 episodes it's already happened 2-3 times! WTF?!!!

Saw RANGO and was disappointed. Took 9 kids for Stella's birthday party and for the most part they seemed bored. For the most part I WAS BORED. There was a few too many "weird Happy Feet" type of segments that should have been left on the editing floor. Disjointed story, unintelligible accents, and just not enough funny parts. C-

And finally...

Been hard at work pimping several of my books to the fine folks down in HollywoodLand. My manager, Ms. Dannie Festa, has been working very hard setting up meetings with many networks and studios. I had the fortune of going down to LA for a week and participating in the pitch meetings for The 3 Geeks. Lemme tell you folks, I know they're speaking English cuz I understand the words if you take them and analyze them individually, but as a whole...when they string them together in a sentence?... Not so much. I mean I even understand the sentences--I'm not a buffoon--but the sentences make no sense. It was an emotional roller coaster I'll never forget. I'm seriously contemplating writing my own "Fortune And Glory" comic akin the one Bendis did several years ago.

Anyway, things are a happenin' down there whether I completely understand the process or not. So hopefully I have some rather delightful news to share soon and all those first printings, NM condition books you've got mylared up will be worth a friggin' fortune.

Thassit for this week. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead (see, entertaining AND informative!),

word.
