The signs all point to one thing – A new dose of Fillerbunny in stores is nigh, this week as a matter of fact, tomorrow even! This is the book nobody’s been waiting for, but everyone should own! Love Fillerbunny? You need this book! Hate Fillerbunny and everything else my name is attached to? You need this book so you can fuel your insane rants to nobody who wants to listen!

In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t been watching all the trailers in theaters and reading all the informative flyers taped to bricks being thrown through your windows while you sleep, this book collects every issue of Fillerbunny ever made, including a brand new issue 4 that’s not even in stores yet! That’s right, this book collects THE FUTURE. Issue 4 is really sad, guys. Maybe you shouldn’t get this book.

Aw, I’m just kidding with you. You HAVE to buy this book. if you don’t, everything i’ve worked for will be for nothing and I’ll just hate myself for even trying. Why would you do that to me? Seriously, what’s up?

There’s quite a bit of new material in here, not even counting the whole new issue, so here’s just a list of the guests that did pages: Bryan Konietzko, Edmund McMillen, J.R. Goldberg, Tyler Hutchison, Frank and Becky, Pendleton Ward, Alex Pardee and Aaron Alexovich. One of them did a drawing that actually upsets me.

So yeah, go to your local comics purchasing establishment tomorrow, demand the book. I’d be pretty happy if you were all responsible for why they sell out of copies in a single day. No pressure, but if that doesn’t happen, I’m probably gonna just kill myself, man. I’ll do it. I won’t actually do it but I’ll talk about it all day.

SD COMICON 2014: THE POSTENING

comicon2014Hello again, and welcome to this year’s edition of me talking about going to the San Diego Comicon again until I die!

I’ll make this a short one, so pay attention, yeah? Here’s the pertinent info for you.

WHERE:

The SLG Comics booth (#1815) at the San Diego Comicon in the giant disease dome the CDC built for their annual experiment in crippling contagion!

WHEN:

July 25-27. My signing times are generally 1-2:30PM and then again from 5:30-7:00PM for each day except Sunday where the second signing of that day starts at 4:00 and goes tip 5PM. Thursday is up in the air but if that changes I’ll let you know.

WHAT:

I’m signing copies of the new Fillerbunny trade paperback full of all sorts of new crap including a whole new issue of Fillerbunny! Fillerbunny 4 comes out in a collection before it even exists as an individual issue! Crazy, I know.

I’ll also have a bunch of prints for signing so that I can occasionally afford to escape and gnaw on a sandwich in an alley somewhere like Gollum only with sandwiches.

WHY:

I don’t know. Oh my god I don’t know. I’m going solo to this one because all my other friends are smart enough to avoid con now and oh god…oh my god…

WOO! SEE YOU THERE!

 

 

 

 

I need questions to answer for a panel. SEND THEM!

QA

So I’m doing a panel for an upcoming convention (Stan Lee’s Comikaze) in a couple of days. Yeah, maybe you’ve seen me do panels before, in person or watched a shaky video of one on Youtube, so you know how it’ll probably go down. I usually just get up there and rant about video games or movies or something and people leave disgruntled and wondering why they didn’t go listen to something about Ninja Turtles. There’s always a point where fans line up to ask questions and…well, that’s where you come in.

This time around I’d like to give the people at the panel a break, you know, let them sit out the question part by answering questions supplied by you fine folks from the futuristic internet realm. No, no. it’s not to avoid the horror that is almost guaranteed to be the result of letting people think up questions there on the spot. Come on, I can’t believe you’d even think that! No, it’s just to be nice and spare the good people in the crowd the potential ankle trauma standing up or walking up to a microphone could invite. One time, a girl, perfectly lovely seeming little thing, walked up,  excitedly grabbed the microphone to bring it closer to her face, and with the sound of a shotgun going off in the room, her kneecaps fired away from her legs, leaving her screaming right into the mic only without metal music accompaniment so it wasn’t badass at all. You don’t know what kind of terrible shit’s gonna happen when you open the room up to questions, so I’d rather just avoid it and here’s how you can help:

The hope is that there’ll be enough people with some decent, fairly thought out questions about my “work” that it will fill up at least 30 seconds of panel. Hell, I’ll even hazard being more positive and say maybe we’ll be able to fill 40 seconds with actual quality interaction! Yeah!!

So hit that link up there, think of what you wanna ask me, then feel terrible about what you wanted to ask me and then write down your actual question that isn’t your initial question. I know, I know, the impulse is to be as fucked up as you can possibly be, but believe me when I say that the most mind-blowing thing I can imagine happening anymore is people actually just making sense. I genuinely enjoy talking my work, whether someone likes it or even hates it, so long as there’s actual thought behind why someone would like or hate it.

EDIT: Thanks, everyone that sent stuff in. The panel went quite nicely and everyone was happy except for the people who hated it.
