- I've decided to put together a print edition of my play, Parens., which I hope to have available at the new comics convention starting up in Portland, Maine next month. I'm making good progress, but laying out a book is a lot of work! Especially when you're dealing with script formatting. I'll likely be getting it printed through Lulu.com.

Ah, spring is in the air. To celebrate the season of romance, the hard-working comics artists of the Boston Comics Roundtable have released Inbound #3, a Boston Comics Anthology. The theme of this tri-yearly publication... love and relationships.
Yes, nobody knows perfectly-requited love and totally un-awkward dating like an indie comics artist. Pick up a copy of Inbound #3 and you'll have more than just an evening's entertainment; the book practically doubles as a 72-page how-to guide for all you Mister and Misses Lonelyhearts out there. All for the low price of $7.95.
It's our biggest issue ever! Included in this volume

The ironically named "American Family Association" has decided to target PepsiCo in retaliation for PepsiCo's generous support of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). So, now would be a good time to call or e-mail each of those companies to let them know you support their respect for diversity and equality. You can get more info about that, including phone numbers here.

Here's a little note from Ron LeBrasseur, who contacted BlueLinePro about the high shipping charges on those sketch cards:
I was a bit surprised that each winning card bid would add a $7.00 S&H fee, so I emailed my contact and asked if it was possible to ship multiple cards in one envelope. The reply was encouraging:

Two of the articles I originally published at Webcomics.com have just been archived at Comixtalk.com. These have been unavailable since Webcomics.com changed hands, which is a shame since I'm actually pretty happy with how most of my writing there turned out.

I will be exhibiting at Boston Comic Con next weekend.

Had a great conversation with Shelli yesterday about the complete draft for our forthcoming book. It looks like I still have a LOT of work to do (which is not a surprise), but now I have a much clearer idea of the direction I'm headed in. And I think I know what to do with Sonny, the troublesome character I've been struggling the most to write.
