C2E2 begins Friday in Chicago, and I’ll be there mooching table space from co-Conspirator DANIEL J OLSON—table C-11 to be precise. Actually, by the time you read this I’ll be in a car with Dan, his wife/writing partner AJ, and my wife Nichole on our way there. Please don’t rob our houses.
Here’s the new cover for MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #4, featuring the new streamlined look and KEVIN CANNON’s sweet logo. You’ll be able to purchase it, the issue it encapsulates, and the 5 other issues of MANLY TALES (all with new covers) in one affordable package at C2E2. In fact, for a full list of EVERYTHING Dan and I will be selling at C2E2, continue scrolling down. But first…
WHAT’LL BE UP WITH STAPLEGENIUS.COM FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO: My guess is that I won’t really be able to post much of anything while in Chicago, so I’ll most likely be maintaining blogio silence until we return. Hopefully I’ll be back with a shite-ton of pictures I can caption-up with patented and much loved smarm as a wrap-up report of C2E2 sometime early-to-mid next week. I’ll also be posting a new CAPTAIN CONFEDERACY cover next weekend. I’ll be back in full force on the 26th as I begin posting MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #5, the Daily Goal Sketches, and whatever else crosses my path. Until then: Crass commercialism!!!
WHAT’LL BE AVAILABLE FROM DAN AND I FOR YOU TO CONSUME AT C2E2:
** The aforementioned MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE 1-6 pack, and the MANLY TALES specials pack. I’ll also bring a few other things with “just in case”….oh, unlikelihood….
** All three issues of Dan and AJ’s SUPER MAXI-PAD GIRL, including the ALL-NEW issue #3 which features a story written by me and drawn (as every story is) by Dan. There will also be a new (and some old) SMPG buttons, and the rarest of collector items–the hand-made SMPG dolls!!!
** The CONTINUITY GUY graphic novella by BUD BURGY (art) and myself (story). And don’t forget, while technically table-less, Bud will be around and happy to sign a copy for you!
** FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY–including the all-new issue #3. Every issue is written by BILL PRENDERGAST, and features a ton of great art by LUPI McGINTY, JAMES POWELL, RYAN DOW, DANIEL J OLSON, and myself.
** SUPER FANTASTICA COMIX — Dan’s wonderful four-issue anthology series featuring art and stories by just about everyone I know, and few people I don’t. Dan will also have some of his 24 Hour Day mini-comics on hand as well.
** BIG FUNNY — Last years collaborative project between the CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY, ALTERED ESTHETICS GALLERY, and about 45 wonderful cartoonists. An old-fashioned, over-sized comic pages insert like those of yester-year is a STEAL at $5 and must-have collectors item. Seriously…we really need to unload these…
** SKETCHES!!! What would a con be without sketches?! Dan and I will both be doing them. The sizes will vary based on price, but rest assured while they will all be of the highest quality, they will be relatively dirt cheap.
** And if there are any weird-o complete-ists out there I’ll be more than happy to sign your copies of TRANSFORMERS: BUMBLEBEE. I doubt this will happen, but you never know…
I think that’s it…wish us luck…and if you’re in the Chicago area between Friday and Sunday, Dan and I hope to see you at C2E2! Just look for these smiling faces:
