New Stuff for Comic-con! [Jul. 12th, 2006|08:56 pm]
raina
I'm super excited to announce that I will be bringing new stuff with me to San Diego this year!

First and foremost, I'll have a BRAND NEW mini-comic! This is Earthquake Weather, which collects the whole storyline from SMILE that I've been working on for most of this year. This is the longest mini-comic I've ever assembled, and the fanciest cover (sage green cardstock):

Here's the back! You'll recognize it as the image I posted here a couple of days ago.

Earthquake Weather will even jump ahead of what's posted on the web by a week or two, so you can read it before it's online, oh my gosh.

Second up, I've made some Baby-sitters Club Button Sets! This is what the four buttons look like:

And since I'm selling them as sets, here's a picture of them in their little packs:

As well, i will perhaps be the sole person to buy a Baby-sitters Club Graphic Novel from at the con, so I'll have plenty of those on hand. And: Take-Out mini-comics, t-shirts, SMILE buttons, and original art! How can you go wrong!

I'll be at table R2 (in Aisle 1900), Small Press Press Pavillion. And I can't wait.

Awww... I wish I could go this year. Maybe I'll mailorder them... or have a friend pick some up for me.

The cool thing is that I was just talking about you with Scott and Barb today at lunch. Scott's here doin' a workshop for two weeks.

Are you going to SPX? I might be able to go out there this year (no promises)

Dig the cover. Can't make it to SDCC. Are you selling these on your site? I'd also buy a copy.

Ah, man! My friend tried to convince me to go to Comic Con. I can't take off the time from my internship (not allowed, and I need the money), but I so wish I could be there! I mean, I live in Southern California (or I did, until I went to school). Gah, the irony!

I'll try to send my friend your way...
