Robo mini-prints for Comikaze Expo!

As four of you may know, I’ll be at the Comikaze Expo starting tomorrow, November 5-6.  I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing there, but my friend talked me into going and now I kind of hate him, so that’s pretty cool.  I’m a “guest of honor” at the thing, and that means I get to sleep with any man’s wife first on the day of their wedding.

Anyhow, as is my way, I’ll be there with a fresh clutch of customized mini-prints, just out of sight (stuffed down my pants).

This time around it’s a print with robots and an inventor lady who, I’m just gonna guess, makes robots.  Each print is signed and has a custom, leaky, floating, disembodied robot head inked right onto it by one of my body parts (I’m not telling! HEEHEE!)

Same setup as the past couple of times I’ve done this: I’ll have only 30 prints on me, each print is $35 and can be purchased after delivering unto me the password.  The password is secret, so I will tell it to you right now.


What isn’t necessary, but would be greatly appreciated is if you could say it with a kind of easy going, souther drawl as if you were sipping a mint julep and just sitting on that there porch of yours, waiting for the kids to come home only they’ll never come home because you don’t have any only you’ve just gone mad from loneliness and old age.

Also, on the Beep Boop Boop part, maybe you could do a little robot dance.  Yeah.  Yeah…you know what I like.


 If you’re planning on going, I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday signing THINGS and being on panels where I’m just confused and mumbling.  CHECK IT OUT!


I think it was around a year ago that I was contacted by Threadless Tees about doing something for them.  Upon hearing just what it was they wanted me to do I threw up and suggested something less awful, possibly my doing some shirts with them and they agreed, but to this day, whenever I see their reps at conventions or at the T-shirt clubs, they give me the creepster eye, leering lasciviously at my beautiful ears.

Eventually, Threadless asked me to do one of their Comics on Tees series, and so I did, employing the freakishly talented help of Ethan Nicolle, JR. Goldberg, and Becky Cloonan.  I had just seen 13 Assassins, the Miike remake, and one by one, I collected each of those artists, convincing them that what I wanted to do was right and just and bloody-minded.  They agreed, except for Cloonan, who swore never to kill again.  I assure her that no blood would be shed in the making of these shirts, lying through my teeth.

If you don’t know anything about these Comics on Tees things, it basically goes something like this.  Someone, me in this case, thinks up a sort of script that would be told over the course of four shirts, and then four artists illustrate said script, each getting a shirt (issue).  Pretty straightforward.

My series, MAKING FRIENDS IS EASY,  is about an inventor recounting the various robots she has built.  That’s all.  What more you need besides robots, though?  The shirts are available over at Threadless and you should probably feel like a complete jerk for not already buying it.  Psh…
