If You Miss This, You Better Be Dead Or In Jail

... And if you're in jail, BREAK OUT!!!

In conjunction with the currently-running Monsters of Webcomics show at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, there will be a special event on Saturday (-day, -day, -day), 12 December, from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Think “One day webcomics convention and nerd-out” as guests of the museum meet local webcartoonists, pick up swag & sketches, and attend writing & drawing workshops throughout the day.

Featured guests include Brian Andersen, Leigh Dragoon, Karen Luk, Betsy Streeter, Jason Thompson, Chuck Whelon, and Nexus of All Webcomics Realities (US Division, Women’s) Shaenon Garrity.

If you’re interested in participating (and can get to SF on your own), contact CAM supremo Andrew Farago, who runs the gallery at the museum which holds the cartoonart domain, which is a non-profit organization.

  • Pre-orders for the lastest book from Evan Dahm (of Rice Boy and Order of Tales fame) are now up; Order of Tales, Book 2: The Hand of Stone will be shipping in 4 to 6 weeks, will run you US$25 ($35 in Canada) for 280 freakin’ pages, and look absolutely gorgeous. Hop to it, peoples.
  • If I’ve got my sums correct (and the graphic on this page suggests that I do), Registered Weapon (once a cash register, now a robot, all cop) just hit 100 updates. Ordinarily, 100 updates is something I’d save for a slower news day, since it’s becoming somewhat ordinary to reach that milestone, but honestly I just needed an excuse to quote today’s RW Police Blotter:

    An employee of Buffalo Wild Wings called in a report that “two bears or something are straight-up [expletive] in the parking deck like it’s the [expletive] Bang Bus.”

    Two thoughts:

    1. That opening leads to a viciously funny dissection of the phenomenon of “Twilight Moms”
    2. If you know what Bang Bus is without looking it up, shame on you

    PS: Don’t Google it if you’re under 18 21 37 you know what? just don’t or at work.

[…] –Thanks to everyone who’s blogged, tweetered or message-boarded about RW, including such fine folks as Kieron Gillen, Mesmerization Eclipse, Dr. K, Rosscott of The System, and Gary Tyrrell. […]
