Hey gang, I want to apologize for the lack of regular updates for @$$hole! lately. It’s not that I’ve taken a departure from comics – in fact, quite the opposite. With the release of my first published story (non self-published, that is), I’ve been super busy working on the next published work. Between that and work and trying out a social life for a few weeks (which culminated in failure this evening over text message), I’ve been a busy bee.

There won’t be any @$$hole! comics this week, I’m afraid. But I’m keeping track of the number of pages that haven’t updated, and I’m going to make it up to you all with some black and white updates (or more photo comics) soon.

I’m happy to say that @$$Hole! was nominated in the 2010 Drunk Duck Awards for best Photo Comic 3 years in a row! The nominations are all voted on by the readers, so I thank you all for the nominations and for liking the comic so much. The least I can do is update the darn thing. Just give me a little time. Winners get announced at the end of August, so maybe we’ll pull of a win this year. Fingers crossed for me.

I’m going to try to blog a bit later this week with the photos from the Reading with Pictures premiere signing event at Challengers last weekend. It was a blast of a time, and we sold a crap-ton of the book. I’ll be pimping the work at Chicago Comic Con next week with many of the book’s contributors, including John Bivens, Steve Wallace, Russell Lissau, and many more!

Alright, that’s it for me for now. Gotta rest up and review this script draft before sending off to the editor.
