Friends, hello. You have been going about your busy lives, reading your tumblrs and facebooks, tweeting so many things. I see your tweets, there are so many tweets. Sometimes I tweet because I think of something funny and sometimes I tweet to let you know I’m still here, but I can’t read all your tweets. I don’t know what you think about Game of Thrones. Facebook reminds me that there are so many people I haven’t seen in years. It is supposed to bring us together, but it just reminds me that we’re apart. When will I see you?
Oh, HOW ABOUT AT THE RHODE ISLAND INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING EXPO on August 2 or 3rd?It’s at the Providence Public Library, and it is in its first year.
If you can’t make it to Providence, there is also the SMALL PRESS EXPO on September 13 and 14th. It’s in Bethesda, MD, and it is in its twentieth year. It was tricky to get into SPX this year. I almost didn’t. I’m glad I’m going because I can show you the comic I will have drawn for Rob Kirby’s Pratfall anthology. It’s about this one time when I fell through a hotel window. I’m fine now.
And hey there is also the chance that you can go to the MASSACHUSETTS INDEPENDENT COMICS EXPO on October 4 and 5 in Boston. This is the year I have sworn off conventions, fairs, and festivals to focus exclusively on expos. Don’t freak out; I’ll probably go back to fairs again next year.
What I have been doing instead of going to fairs and festivals, and instead of (you may have noticed) producing new comics, is writing. I’m writing a big long thing that will be a comic one day. I don’t like to think about when it will actually be a finished comic, because it is surely such a long time from now. For now it is a thing I am working on and I hope you do like it, or I hope that your children like it if it takes that long. I don’t mean that you will be dead, but maybe you will be so old that your eyesight is gone. No, no, no, it won’t take that long, really. But who knows. Why worry about it? One day I’ll have a book and you can read it. Stop worrying so much.
This year I am also trying to put together an anthology of short comics with my good friend Cara Bean. And there is a project I am excited about, launching we hope at the end of July. It relates to comics. I can’t say too much about it right now. These are all very vague updates, I know. I did give you some concrete things, like dates. You can hang your hat on those. If you see me at one of these conventions, or somewhere else, I promise I will tell you things. They aren’t real secrets. Nobody will die. Nobody will even cry. It’s just comics, man.
