Charity Auction

I'd like to draw your attention to another auction that I'm a part of. This one is for a Deadlands Reloaded Limited Edition #1 of 1000 exclusive. Ah hell... here is the press release

Only 1000 of these 256 page, full color leatherette books were printed. The others will be available in games stores, the Pinnacle Entertainment website, and the Studio 2 Publishing website. Each individually numbered book has a gold foil Hanging Judge on the cover and is signed by Deadlands'creator, Shane Hensley. Inside you'll find all the setting information and new rules you need to play in the Weird West, including rules for shootouts at High Noon, new Edges and Hindrances, new powers, a savage change to melee damage, a complete history of the Weird West, and more creepy critters than you can throw a tomahawk at.

The #1 (of 1000) book includes a special message from Shane and a custom sketch determined by YOU from Cheyenne Wright! You can get a picture of Stone, Ronan Lynch, Smilin' Jack, or even your very OWN Deadlands character by Pinnacle's best-known artist!

And if you're still looking for a reason to bid, all the proceeds of the auction will be going to the Fisher House Foundation (EIN#11-3158401), who build and donate Fisher Houses at military/VA medical centers, support existing houses, help military families in need and award Scholarships for Military Children.

...So there you go

...and now a word from our sponser

At the risk of becoming Firefly centric or pissing off Scott Kurtz and all those fine folks at Think Geek -- I give you Mal Shot First

I made this for me -- but I thought you might guys might want one too.

While we are at it. Allow me to draw your attention to This Ebay Item! A copy of my very first Convention Sketchbook. Chock full of game art, sketches, strips, and other goodies. The winner will also get an original sketch of their choice in the inside cover.

New Zombie Anthem

Jonathan Coulton is a songwriter and the Contributing Troubadour for Popular Science Magazine. He also maintains a podcast called "Thing a Week", which is just that. Every week you get a new mp3 or video from deep within his music studio/lair located somewhere near the Earth's mantle under Brooklyn.

This week he sent out "Re: Your Brains" -- featuring a fairly articulate zombie explaining why you should unlock that door and let him eat your brains, and with lines like...

“We’re not unreasonable, I mean, no one’s gonna eat your eyes”.

How can you object - really

He's Baaaack!

Howdy all. ...So, um how you been?

good good... glad to hear it - mmm? oh me, I've been good. A little of this a little of that... you know. I'm still coloring for Girl Genius of course, in fact the fourth collection has finally arrived from the printers and should be hitting stores real soon soon.

It was a great relief to finally see the backup story "Fan Fiction" in the flesh - so to speak. I had been really worried about how the colors were going to come out. It looks good and I'm very happy with it.

Which is great because that means we will have them on the table at Emerald City Comic Con. Where I'll also have my very first convention sketchbook "I Think We Lost 'Em" - for sale.

I took a trip to NYC for the New York Comic Con -- which... had some issues *rimshot* But I got to meet a bunch of cool people like Kyle Baker , Jodi Jett and the lovely folks at Sequart .

I also got to meet some really great fans -- FAN'S!! of My comic! How cool is that! (Hi Kim!). It was very unexpected and a great treat.

I figure that if you read this strip you probably read GG as well, but if you don't -- You probably missed that I've put together an old time radio podcast out of the live performances we do at sci-fi cons. You can learn more and subscribe to the feed HERE. We've received a lot of good feedback on the show, some mentions by some of the cooler cats out there like Escape Pod and the Kick Ass Mystic Ninjas -- both of which I recommend listening to...

Podcasting is a hoot and I'm looking forward to doing more of it, as soon as I can find a good gimmick.

So... let's see... New GG trade, Emerald City Con, Sketchbook, Fans are cool, Podcasting is fun... yeah, that about covers it.

...Oh wait -- I'm getting Married. -- TTFN
