Countdown to Awesome. July 28, 2008 Posted by Mookie
I don't know where "please do not kick the leviathan" came from, but it popped into my head and it gave me a case of the chuckles, so much so that I decided to make it today's punchline. Or would that be kickline? Either way, I think it's funny, but I'm biased.

Okay, the big news is that this very weekend is CONNECTICON! This convention never fails to be entertaining as hell and I've been honored to be involved with it every single year since its maiden voyage. This year will be no different, as I'll be doing a number of panels including the DDQ&A, Writing Unique Heroes & Memorable Villains and Great Comic Books. I'll also be up for auction at the Webcomic Charity Auction and I'll be hosting the Cosplay Chess Game for the fourth year in a row. I'm so fracking excited.

I'll have some swag for sale, as well as convention-only goodies such as scarves and limited-run t-shirts (but if the shirts do well enough they'll go on sale here). If you stop by and say "hi" you'll notice that I'll be offering commissions, except I won't be the one doing them. My good friend Tarah, whose artwork has been featured here over the past few years, will be drawing any and all of your requests.

And finally, because OTAKON is the very next weekend, the update schedule around here is going to change temporarily. This Friday will be the last update of the week, and starting next Monday the strip will only update on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule. Once Otakon is done, the strip resumes its normal updating... if I make it out of these two mammoth conventions in one piece.

That's all from me for now!
Rock on.
