Oh my God so much crap

is happening right now I've got a bunch of shit to cover and there's a feral raccoon gnawing on my shin but I'm afraid to kick him away because I might forget something so I'm gonna try to ignore it and just type through the pain and impending infection here we go:

IT LOOKS BACK #3 is now on Comixology


You can buy it here. I've said it before and I can't stress it enough, but if you do pick it up, maybe take a second to give it a rating and tell your friends. The more books I sell, the easier it'll be to feed my family of feral raccoons.


The short one on the left there? That's Gorrack, he's on the honor roll. The one next to him is Duuuuuuurgh, he's doing a nickle down at state for armed robbery. I'm rambling. Moving on...

IT LOOKS BACK #4 is pretty much done

And it's the last issue, which actually means...

IT LOOKS BACK is pretty much done


I finished the art and lettering last night/this morning. All that's left is to have Nicole proofread it, fix anything she finds, and get it off to the printer. Once I get everything back from the printer, I'll send it off to Comixology as well.

I have no idea what my next project is going to be once this is done. I have a few options, but I haven't decided on anything yet.

Unfortunately, I don't think IT LOOKS BACK #4 will be available in time for C2E2. The process of sending the files to the printer, getting a proof copy, looking it over, making revisions, and ordering stock takes a while, and C2E2 is coming up fast. But #3 will be there. I just got stock for that issue the other day. Speaking of C2E2... 

The Simon Corporation (sans raccoon army) will be appearing at several physical, real-world locations where you can say hi or something

You already know about C2E2, which is only about a month away. But a few weeks after than I will be hitchhiking Bill Bixby-style to Minnesota to attend SpringCon. Just about every comic-making friend I've met has recommended this show, so I'll be there. Possibly drunk. Probably drunk.



I've gotten into the habit of making posters for each convention I do for some reason, so here's one for SpringCon:


Speaking of posters I made...

I cannot stress this enough, Nakama Toys is bringing giant-monster pro-wrestling to Chicago

I wrote in an earlier post about Nakama Toys bringing Kaiju Big Battel to Chicago for a show in June. Since that post we've had a party at the Squared Circle to promote it. It went off well and there will probably be at least one more promo party before the big show. Along with serving as an excuse to talk wrestling, drink, and party with Cycloptopus, that promo event was also the date Nakama unveiled the poster I made for the event and - more importantly - when tickets for the show went on sale.

Here's my poster:


You can get the poster (exclusively at Nakama Toys) by going HERE.

You can get tickets for Kaiju Big Battel (also exclusively at Nakama Toys) by going HERE.

If you don't ever use the internet but are somehow still managing to read this post, you can also pick up the poster and the tickets (along with a variety of other awesome KBB merch) in person at any Nakama live event. I know for certain they'll be at C2E2 and ACEN. I'll post more info as I get it.

Holy crap I think that's everything. I'm out.
