Grumble, Grumble

About eight different things ranking from medium-low to apocalyptic on the crappitude scale have made themselves known to me in the past 18 hours or so; so I’m apologizing in advance if my copy-editing isn’t up to standard. It’s just one of those days.

  • Speaking of eight different things, octopuses have eight arms, and I’m told that they make a tasty pie filling. No, wait, tentacle pie is disgusting, but Octopus Pie: There Are No Stars In Brooklyn releases today, and that’s the opposite of a terrible thing. Meredith Gran is celebrating with a book release party in Seattle tonight, will be at home base Dunning-Kruger Solutions LTD for a signing tomorrow night, and embarks on her cross-continent book tour pretty immediately thereafter.

    At various stops along the way, she’ll be in the company of Erika Moen, Aaron Diaz, David Malki !, Kris Straub, KC Green, Josh Lesnick, David McGuire, R Stevens, and many more creators, most of whom will have their own book-like wares in exchange for your cash money.

  • I have it on good authority that Cameron Stewart is asked an average of eight times an hour if he’s the brother of Twilight starlet Kristen Stewart. After a year and a half of this nonsense, one can understand exactly origin of the dark, troubling encounters that the hero of Sin Titulo. In fact, the latest update is allegedly drawn directly from Stewart’s own reaction to hearing that question for the 8000th time.

    Oh, yeah, and it’s also the 100th update chock full o’ moody, noir goodness; hopefully Sin Titulo will not be too interrupted by the mystery project that he and studiomate Karl Kerschl have been hinting at. Then again, the fact that Stewart does such amazing work in and around the paying gigs (including such high-profile assignments as drawing Batman) and delivers it to my eyeballs for free means I should probably be grateful for whatever happens to arrive.
