Even More…

STUFF!

One of the first things I read* after returning from Comic-Con was their 40th Anniversary Souvenir Book. (Not to be confused with the Chronicle one. This is the one that they hand out when you enter the show.) I LOVED it. Since it was their 40th, they went back and gave a recap of every year, along with memories from people who have been part of the show since the beginning. You got to see fantastic program covers, where the convention has exhibited, who the guests were… fascinating stuff! To all those involved, thanks and GREAT JOB! (*I also read some submissions along the way, but finished those after the SDCC book.)

The next four orders that get placed through the AdShop will receive a FREE scratchndent copy of REMAKE. Just sayin. (the normal disclaimer applies.)

David at the PreCur on HIRO:  “So basically, what we’re dealing with here is a loving, functional couple dealing with the occasional outburst of genre mash-up, based on whatever Chao pulls out of the pop-culture junk drawer.”

SDNN on JJ:  “As a welcome reprieve from his larger projects, Jean finds pleasure in drawing in his sketchbooks as a self-contained world free from the constraints that are par for the course of any commercial-art career.”

Hipster Dad on TRH:  ” It’s done with a delightfully balanced sense of scale and wit, with wonderful artwork and character designs.” via TCR.

Don @ EyeonComics on TTT: “But artist Scott Morse reveals that he often feels as lost as the rest of us. He’s struggling to live a good life, to be a good father. The world around him and the people in it can be frustrating, even infuriating, but when he pauses, he can see the wonder in the quieter, everyday moments as well.” via TCR.

Episode Three of the ISR’s MoCCA Reportage.

Drawn talks the PR3.

And speaking of Drawn, a big thanks to Matt for helping us make connections. We just might be helping a certain someone bring a certain thing to certain shops at some point in the future. (Break out your decoder rings people!)

Designie.

Couple recent thoughts on designie stuff:

You see the new Charles and Ray Eames stamps? They’re wicked cool, and possibly my fave stamps of all time? (Not sure… I’m sure a vintage space stamp is my favorite stamp of all time.)

James Jean covers the new issue of Giant Robot (54) which hits your local comic shops this week. Nice cover, spread, interview, etc. James is designie.

Our pal J Chris Campbell has gone and designed a Colt 45 can. Heck, it’s a contest, so you should go vote for him!

Okeydoke.

And a last minute update: In celebration of 1 year anny of The Ride Home,  Joey Weiser is offering up some free sketches… “To celebrate The Ride Home‘s first birthday, I’m offering a gift to you! If you can send me some sort of proof that you’ve purchased a copy of The Ride Home between the dates of July 10th, 2008 and August 15th, 2008, I will send you an original TRH drawing, and charge you only enough to cover postage! That’s $2 for regular shipping, $5 for priority, and $10 international. If you are familiar with TRH, you may request specifics in the drawing, or I can make it a surprise! You can send copies of dated reciepts, shipping notices, photos of you at comic shops purchasing TRH, etc. to joey [at] tragic-planet [dot] com ! You have until August 15th, but why wait??”

It’s been a long… long.. long.. time.

Well, yeah, I haven’t posted to the blog since I was on the road for a bit.. and really didn’t feel like we needed any drastic updates as such. But now that I’m back, why not mention…

Joey Weiser talks it up with Tim O’Shea over here. Tim was one of the first people to contact me back in the day when he was interested in that strapping Joel Priddy fellow.

Oh.. and a friendly reminder that the deadline to make your nominations for the Harvey Awards is fast approaching. Here’s the site, y’all.

And while I forgot to mention this in the original blog post, I’m editing to ad… Fred Chao gets some Heavy Ink coverage. You can click on the link at the bottom for their interview.

More later you taters.
