Lots of stuff to tell you!
First, although I sadly can't attend this year, if you live anywhere near Ann Arbor you need to be at Kids Read Comics this weekend. Great fun for kids, educational for adults - especially if you're a cartoonist, as there are workshops throughout the weekend that you can learn a lot from, led by professionals, pitched at all levels of expertise. You need this show in your life! And it's FREE!
Secondly, apparently this week I had two comics out: the first issue of my "lost" Muppet Show comic, The Four Seasons, came out from Marvel, and the third issue of Popeye from IDW, featuring a full-length Popeye story by me and the mighty Tom Neely. Really very proud of that one.
Thirdly, it appears that me and Snarked! have been nominated in three categories in the Harvey Awards: Best Publication for Younger Readers, Special Award for Humor, and Best Cartoonist (!) - although that last one has me up against some astonishing competition, so my expectations there are suitably lowered. But holy moley. I have made arrangements over the last few days to attend the Baltimore Comic Con in order to be at the ceremony, so more about that anon.
And, last but not least, thanks to Boom! Studios' kind sponsorship, I will be attending the San Diego Comic Con in a few short days! I'll be stationed at the Boom! booth (2743) for most of the show, signing books and (no doubt) doodling madly, so please stop by and say hello if you're there.
