#168 - Repercussions New episodes Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Friday, October 27, 2006
TODAY'S NEWS: I hadn't planned on doing this comic as a single panel. Then I had an idea for Monday's comic using this format, and I thought this one might work that way, so I just HAD to try it. It's not bad, and being able to put in the newspaper headlines is a plus. Don't worry, this comic isn't going to a become only a single-panel format! I'm just trying it for a couple comics. You know the saying: "Variety is the Spice of Life. As is Cinnamon."
I'm going to Stumptown Comics Fest this afternoon! And tomorrow! It will take up much of the weekend, unless it turns out to be boring and I just go home. But what are the odds of that?
ETA:Stumptown is only 1/3 over, but it's already been well worth the price of admission! As I'd hoped, the place was busy but not too full, so I had more leisure to talk with artists, writers, sellers and publishers. I gave out cards to people I talked to, and a few buttons to those who had read my comic already. People have been very friendly and have offered some great suggestions for contacts and resources. I was particularly pleased to chat with Chris Yates of Reprographics and David Malki! of Wondermark (Colleen AF Venable of Fluff In Brooklyn couldn't make it, but she responded so nicely to my email, so she gets a link, too!).
So if you're one of the fine people who have found your way here from the cards I gave out at Stumptown, Welcome! There is a narrative arc to these comics, so later episodes will make more sense if you start from the beginning. I hope you find the comic amusing and worth coming back to often. You might as well just bookmark the current comic page now. Seriously.
