More on The Emerald City

We have a map now of where you can find the TopatoCo booth at ECCC. But now… I look at it… and… Oh. It is right there at the entrance. You don’t need a map. But here, if you insist.

Do you know how many WEBCOMIC SUPAH STAAAHS are going to be there? Like, all of them. I won’t list them. Just look at the map. But the other exciting news is that TopatoCo is presenting a live recording of one of my favorite podcasts that I have also played a guest character on, Tweet Me Harder!

It’s at Arcane Comics on Friday night and all the cool people are going to be there because it is free.


Boy have I got some blogging for you

Internet people, sometimes I have a bunch of things I forget to write about over time, and I have to make up a bulleted list to let you know about all of them. Perhaps I will come up with a name for these posts. Let’s say it’s the Dr. McBlogstorm March Edition.

  • We have quite a few shows coming up in April (FOUR CITIES. THREE WEEKS), if you’ll just check our Appearances list on the right there. Notably, Kent will be making a rare appearance at Boston Comic Con, signing books, and doing sketches in Artists Alley. I’ll be at MoCCA in New  York that weekend, so clearly you should see one of us on Saturday, and then drive to see the other on Sunday, and then we’ll both sign  your books.
  • Also in KENT NEWS, he’s doing commissions right now! You can check out his site for info and examples.
  • You might remember back in the fall, I asked for your help with my dog, Commissioner Gordon in the Cutest Dog Competition? Some friends made comics to rally support! Well somehow, I missed one! Here it is by Angela Melick of Wasted Talent! Wasted Talent’s a pretty swell comic.

Enough about Dr. McNinja. On to friends.


April Appearances

April 2-4th – San Francisco – Wondercon: I’ll be at a booth with David Malki! of Wondermark, Aaron Diaz of Dresden Codak, Meredith Gran of Octopus Pie, and Zach Weiner of SMBC! And for one weekend only, we are… The Reason You Came. Booth 425.

April 10-11th – New York – MoCCA: I’ll be appearing with the Topato Corporation (Table F33) along with Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics, Kate Beaton of Hark! a Vagrant, David Malki! of Wondermark!, Bernie Hou of Alien Loves Predator, Andrew Hussie of MSPaint Adventures, and OMG Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content

April 10-11th – Boston – Boston Comic Con: Kent will be making a rare appearance at this show in Artists Alley! The trip isn’t too far between Boston and New York! Get us both to sign your books that weekend! (If you are going to Boston, be sure to find Lauren Monardo too, because she is just terrific.)

April 16-18th – Chicago – C2E2: For the first time ever, I will be exhibiting with Anthony, our colorist, and author of Nedroid! Once you pass the tomb of the silver monkey, climb the stairs to enter the TopatoCo booth, number 965. There you shall find me with uh… other TopatoCo people. I’m not sure which ones yet. Malki! though, for sure. I sure hope we are still friends after seeing each other more in one month than we previously had in entire years.

PLUG-A-REE-DOOOO

Listen up, you mooks! It’s time to get a little webcomic culture! You can’t just keep going round reading about ninjas and explosions! You need to broaden your horizons. Luckily, Crazy Chris the Nightmare Man is here to help you with some good suggestions.

BAD MACHINERY is a comic about terribly clever British children solving MYSTERIES. The characters are fresh, and the story’s fun and engaging. I would say it’s the highlight of my morning RSS reading. Author John Allison actually makes me angry with how funny the kids are. (I am envious.) Just the wickedest jokes. Great stuff. And now is the best time to hop on board, because the first story, THE CASE OF THE DAMNED UNITED has just finished up! Read it instead of doing your homework!

“Chris. Clever children are fine, but really I’m only interested in reading about one thing, and one thing only. Awesome doctors. That’s why I’m here.”

How are you talking back to me!?! This blog doesn’t have comments enabled! Get outta here! Anyway, I have something for you too. AWESOME HOSPITAL. Dr. Dirtbike. Dr. Space Baby. Dr. BULLDOG ON A SKATEBOARD. That’s all I have to say to you on that. Read it if you like fun.
