New Stuff for Comic-con! [Jul. 12th, 2006|08:56 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
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)

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...

Wah! since I'm not going to San Diego this year for the first time in ages. Any chance that Comic Relief in Berkeley might be getting a few copies?

Then again, I could hold to the hope of getting the chance to buy it at APE '07.

Dude, Raina, Earthquake Weather looks awesome! I'll definitely be stopping by to pick up a copy (we're no too far off at table M12). Are you going to be there Preview Night?

Also, the Stick It To Me guys overcharge. If you ever need buttons just drop me a line; Mike and I would drop everything to make buttons for you! <3

hey, rachel! yay for the small press section! i'll most definitely be there for preview night...the fact that some people DON'T go for it blows my mind! a four-day comic-con would be much too short for me. ;)

thanks for letting me know about your button makin' shop. SITM won out this time because they were fast and almost local, and i wanted those little foldover packs, so it was no big deal.

but for future reference! yes!

see ya in a couple days!
