10'x10' Toons - Dungeons & Dragons, Webcomic, Stan!, D&D, Comic, Pathfinder, Cthulhu, RPG, Roleplaying Game

Holy cats! Gen Con kicks off tomorrow! By the time you read this I will (hopefully) be done setting up my little table in Authors Avenue . . . or maybe I’ll still be working on it. It’s hard to say. In any case, come tomorrow, I’ll be AT that table and ready to smile, shake your hand, and try to convince you to spend some of your hard-earned cash on my merch.

Seriously, though, stop on by. I’m basically running the table myself, and I’ll be in need of friendly faces to brighten my day.

You can find me at AUTHORS AVENUE — Table S (this is basically at the very far end of the 1100 aisle in the Exhibitor Hall).

I’ll have copies of the brand new Attack of the LOLth Cats—A 10’x10′ Toon Calendar for 2014 for sale, along with The Littlest Shoggoth (book and lapel pin), my two fantasy coloring books (What Color Is Your Dragon? and Paint Your Face With Runes), a selection of the novels and short story anthologies I’ve gotten my words into, two short children’s books I self-published, and a handful of art prints. Lots to see and marvel over.

I will be taking a little bit of time away from hawking my wares to speak at a handful of seminars. If you simply want to anonymously enjoy my proclamations and worldly advice, you can join the crowds at these events (check the registration book for locations).

If you’re here in Indy, I hope to see you along the line SOMEWHERE this weekend. If not . . . well  . . . we miss you and wish you were here . . . but we don’t have time to slow down, there’s too much to do! Next year, c’mon out to Gen Con!!!

Welcome to Week 2 of “We’re Back Again for August” (which technically started in July)!

Let me start by thanking you all for such a warm welcome back. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what kind of reception I was going to get after letting the comic lay fallow for so long. It was completely within the realm of possibility that my announcement was going to be met with a resounding yawn from the community . . . and not in my wildest dreams did I imagine there would be any kind of actual EXCITEMENT over this development.

But you surprised me in the BEST way possible!

Now I’ve got a surprise for you.

I’m going to have a table in Authors Avenue at Gen Con (Aug. 15–18 in Indianapolis, in case you didn’t know) . . . and at that table I’ll have a brand new product for sale—a 2014 Calendar featuring comics from this site!


Of course, I’ve only printed about 150 of them . . . so you may want to swing by early in the weekend if this is something you feel you absolutely must have. But if they’re popular, I’ll print up more after Gen Con and find a way to make them available online (so even if you can’t be at the show, you should be able to get a copy . . . leave a comment or send me an email, though, so I can get some kind of idea how many I need to print).

I’ll post more about my Gen Con schedule and wares next week.

So, yeah … things got kind of quiet around here for a while.

A long while.

More than year.

And more than “quiet” … it was pretty dang dead.

Sorry about that.

Truth be told, I haven’t been doing a lot of cartooning in that period (much to my own chagrin) and I was doing even LESS tending of my websites. Not very wise, I’ll grant you, but life’s like that sometimes. I never did forget about ol’ virtual homestead, though . . . and I never stopped WANTING to dust things off and get them going again. And, well, here I am.

For the month of August, the site will be back up and running, with a new comic each week—this time on Wednesdays, instead of Fridays.

Okay, these aren’t 100% “new” . . . they’re comics I did for the final few issues of Kobold Quarterly, and another private client. But they ARE new to the site, and for most folks out there, that’s practically the same thing.

What happens beyond August?

Honestly, I’m not sure. I’d LIKE to get back into the habit of doing at least one cartoon a week . . . but there are a lot of other responsibilities calling my name these days. I feel like I can get back to a weekly schedule . . . but maybe not during the same month as Gen Con and PAX Prime.

In any case, enjoy the toons, and enjoy your summer! I hope to see some of you in Indianapolis in a couple of weeks. I’ll have a table in Authors Avenue, so stop by and say hi!
