Making Comics Fifty State Tour



Yes, we actually did it! Even though we still have one more event -- the wrap party at Golden Apple in LA listed below -- we've now successfully fullfilled the mission we set out to accomplish: Staging at least one public event in every state in America in a single year. We could get hit by a meteor tomorrow and it wouldn't change a thing since California has already seen a full 11 events even before the wrap party.

Thanks to everyone at the Las Vegas Barnes and Noble for a warm welcome (on the proverbial short notice). We'll have details on yesterday's signing soon. And of course we've got a few weeks of wrap-ups, catch-ups and follow-ups including some really cool pictures from throughout the tour and everybody's closing thoughts.

So, in conclusion, if you are anywhere even remotely close to Los Angeles we hope you'll join us for our final, final, final event:

Saturday, September 1
Los Angeles, CA
Golden Apple
Tour Wrap Party!
4-7 pm

See you there!

Hooray! Congratulations! Y'all've covered 50 states!

That's 48 more than Sufjan Stevens, so far!

Ooh! Good point.

Without that requirement, we would've been done as of Hawaii! ^__^

I've added that in now.

Woo!!!! (Throws hands in the air like he just does not care.) Congratulations from Vermont (so it'd be a bit of a commute to the party) on your success! That's incredible! I am terribly jealous of your adventure! Rock!

Congrats from Atlanta! Its been great tracking your trek across the nation through this blog. I hope the family adjusts back into (normal) life easily, and we're all looking forward to the reunion tour in 2017! ;)

Plus the great state of Canada!

Great job, and all members of the family still alive and intact, no less!

I bet it will be nice, however, to settle down again, no?

Fifty 'hoorays' for each of you. So that's 200 altogether!

I wish we were able to come to the wrap party, but alas. Have a great time!

Hey McClouds! Congratulations and thanks again. I wish I was clever enough to intentionally set you up with that background, but at least it's appropriate.

Congrats! And thanks again for stopping at Neptune. We had fun and people are still talking about your visit, since we don't get such big names in comics out here that often.
