I've got an extremely awesome sale going on for Skin Horse right now. From now until the end of January, for every copy of Skin Horse Volume One you purchase, I will send a randomly selected original daily strip. These normally sell for $50, but I'm moving and I need to lighten my load.
Oh, and if you want a specific strip, you can purchase one for the normal price of $50. Which might be worth doing if you don't want your favorite strip to go to somebody who doesn't appreciate it on the same level you do.

I did this end-of-the-year webcomics roundtable for ComixTalk and managed to get in a few plugs for my favorites. Check it out:

With the holiday season happening and all, why not consider gift shopping at the Couscous Collective Store? Not only can you purchase Narbonic and Skin Horse collections (and if you order all six volumes of Narbonic together, I'll sign and sketch in each one), but the store includes a wide selection of comics and minicomics by the other members in good standing of the Couscous Collective. Some of my personal recommendations:

A week and a half ago, our computer, P.B., crashed. P.B. is a seven-year-old desktop Mac, one of the white gooseneck models. I usually call him Plastic Baby, but his formal name for company is Pangur BÃ¡n, Irish for "White Pangur." It's the title of a medieval poem written by an Irish monk to his cat some 1,200 years ago. (Wikipedia says that pangur means "waulker," but I've also come across the theory that "Pangur" was an Irish pronunciation of "Peter." Either way, it was apparently a common cat name.) When I first read the poem as a college student at Trinity, I was struck by its sweet simplicity. The last verse opens a little slit in time to that monk, hunched over an illuminated Gospel, patiently nursing his tiny light against the darkness. With his white cat by his side.

The Cartoon Art Museum is proud to host Webcomic-Con 2009, a single-day mini-convention dedicated to online comics and their creators. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet local webcartoonists and talk with them about their work. The featured artists will sell and sign copies of their comics, draw sketches for patrons, and conduct writing and drawing workshops throughout the day.

A new Skin Horse storyline, "Tin Soldier," starts today! After the intimidatingly long Alaska arc that just ended, this is a good jumping-on point for new readers. I promise romantic angst out the wazoo. Also robots.

To those of you who responded to my last post with regret that street D&D could never happen in their neck of the woods: Don't be so sure! The Street Master can throw down the twelve-sided die anytime, anywhere. He has plans. Plans that will probably get him arrested.
