Making Comics Fifty State Tour


[cross-posted with smccloud]

Only a week before Zot! The Complete Black and White Collection is on sale, and reviews are coming in:

Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter

Gary Tyrrell at Fleen

Greg McElhatton at Comic Book Resources

...and our old friend Barry Deutsch (congratulations to Barry, BTW, for his Russ Manning award nomination for Hereville!)

Reminder: Don't miss the Zot! panel, Friday at 1:30 pm, Room 10 at Comic-Con, and my signing at Dumbrella at 3 pm. And yes, the book will be available at Con.

Wait, what? Is this issues 11->the end?

Sweet. I had no idea this was coming out.

I think you should start a huge brawl with hereville over his assertion that Woody is a borderline Mary Sue.

Personally I love Mary Sues anyway. Somebody's gotta'. But aside from the whole tall thing, which I would never have noticed in that context if I hadn't known already that you're not tall, I don't really see the Mary Sue thing happening in Zot !

Besides, I always wanted to be tall. If I were still drawing comics, everyone in my comics would be tall, damnit.

Also, I'm out of work so if I was ever going to give an online cartoonist fistfight my undivided attention, this would be the perfect time to have one. Though I may occasionally take a break to go out and do yard work or the dishes or a craigslist job search (for the 7,839th since early June). Nothing personal.

Stop ruining everything. That's supposed to be MY department.
