Save us from ourselves!

All sorts of exciting business is going on this weekend out there in ComicLand. Our fair retailers TopatoCo are having a TAG SALE on Saturday the 26th. Check it out if you live near western Mass and want some mad deals all the internet comics merchandise you could ever desire. The Small Press Expo is happening in Maryland this weekend, and I will be crying myself to sleep each and every night because I can't go this year!

HOWEVER all is not lost! I will be speaking at the ever-popular Webcomics Panel at Word on the Street here in Toronto. The festival goes all day Sunday, and the Webomics Panel is in the Comics tent, starting at 5pm. Come on out and listen to me blather.

The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.

It's a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:

We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you aren't alone in the world.

The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.
