Just a reminder, everyone... my first con of the year is Emerald City in Seattle, May 10th and 11th! I'll be sharing a booth with Jeph and Jeff, while many of my other webcartooning friends -- not to mention a metric ton of amazing talent from the print comics world -- will be elsewhere on the floor. Just check out this guest list! I am really looking forward to it!
And what about the rest of the year? Well, after considerable deliberation, I think I've decided to sit out this year's San Diego Comic-con. The truth is, I can only do so many conventions a year... and after three SD Comic-cons in a row I've gotten a little bit burned out on it.
But on the bright side, skipping it should allow me to do a couple of new shows instead. For one, it looks like I will finally be heading to Connecticon this year. Nothing else is set in stone yet, but I will keep you posted!

Apologies if this is old news -- I'm not exactly living on the bleeding edge of pop culture these days -- but have you seen this music video for Justice's "DVNO"? It's pretty impressive... not just for it's perfect recreation of dozens upon dozens of 1980s corporate logos, but for the way they have been altered to match the lyrics of the song. (With many of the logos paired with a word or phrase for which it is particularly visually appropriate.) For anyone who grew up in the 80s, this video is pretty much a guaranteed 3 minutes of repeated of unsettling familiarity and vague subconscious recognition. (And the song isn't bad either!)
Our story continues on Monday! See you then.
Thank you for all the kind words about Monday's cowbell humour. I'm glad it was so well recieved! (Although I was a bit disappointed to learn that, as far as excessive cowbell enthusiasm goes, I was totally beaten to the punch by Christopher Walken.)
In any event, it sounds like there is a lot of support out there for a mandatory cowbell Parental Advisory. Perhaps this be the 2008 election's "big issue". It's up to you, America!
