@$$hole!: Blind Date 17

Seriously did a little research about the musical CATS, which I’ve only seen once. I figured it was a good place to reference it. Who would be your choices for her character?

Also, love the waiter’s head spying on the date….


The first self-published book for @$$hole! is coming out at the end of September, premiering at Reactor (September 18-20) in Rosemont, Il. It collects the 41 page black and white story of Laura’s 21st Birthday. The book is going to be 52 pages and has an original cover, some new artwork, guest strips, an afterword by the creator (that’s me), and a forward by Josh Elder (Josh from TokyoPOP).

“Why premiere your book at Reactor, and not something larger like Windy-City?” you ask. Well, through my many con appearances I’ve met several of the people who put Reactor together, and they have offered me the opportunity to speak at their convention. In fact, they’ve given me several panels to speak during throughout the weekend. Here’s my panel schedule, for all those interested:

8 pm – MAIL ORDER NINJA (A reading with Russell Lissau and Josh Elder)

1 pm – A special all-guest artist panel
4 pm – Writing for comics (Collaboration with Steve Horton)
5 pm – Sci-fi fantasy: the art of crafting your world

11:00 am – @$$hole! webcomic panel

On top of that and all the tasks associated with printing the book, I’ve also gotten a table at Mid-Ohio Comic Con (October 3-4 in Columbus, OH) with Rival Angels creator Alan Evans. We’ll be hanging out with The Dreamer creator Lora Innes, and several other comic creators. Not sure on any speaking schedule while there, but I’m working on it. More to follow.

    The waiter took your glasses!

    I never saw CATS so I will take your word for it. This talk of sending kittens to heaven is disturbing, but not as much as Catlady giving ‘birth’ to them. 😛 Can’t wait to see how this shakes out.

    Lots of cool stuff planned for the near future. It all looks fun and considering, I’m on that list, how could it not be fun? XD

    Yeah, there are some shots here taken out of sequence. I was hoping to cover up the table with word balloons. More info about the kittens will be revealed on Friday.

    I’ve seen Cats twice, but I had to look the characters up online. There are a LOT of them.

    Yes, you’re totally involved in the cool stuff coming up. Still have yet to hear back about Mid-Ohio Con panels, but I sent them my list of panels and descriptions for the topics that I’d like to speak on.
