Almost forgot...

Wednesday, January 31, 2007 - 03:14 PM

I should mention that there are only a few dozen Artist Editions left for "The Good, The Bad & The Pugly".

You can never predict how fast these things sell out, but since the final copies of "A Well Balanced Meal" went in about a day, I've learned to give folks a fair warning.

Just a reminder: these are the limited edition books, and once they're gone, no further Pugly Artist Editions will ever be sold. After that, the only way to get a unique, awesome drawing in your book will be to corral me in person. But I'll demand that you buy me curly fries in trade.

So if you're interested, and don't want to have to buy me curly fries, pick up your copy before they're all gone.

Good News, Bad News & News You Can Use

Wednesday, January 31, 2007 - 03:00 PM

Three bits of news today:

1.) Sheldon was nominated for the "Outstanding Comedic Comic" Award over at the WCCA's, which is always fun. I stumbled on this strip, this morning, using the random button, and realized 2006 was a pretty solid year for Sheldon.

Sheldon is up against some pretty funny strips, but it's nice to get the shout-out, regardless. Also nice: Blank Label picked up nine total nominations!

Outstanding B&W Comic: Starslip Crisis by Kristofer Straub

Outstanding Character Rendering: Ugly hill By Paul Southworth

Outstanding Use of the Medium: Halfpixel by Kristofer Straub

Outstanding Web Design: Starslip Crisis by Kristofer Straub

Outstanding Comedic Comic: Sheldon by Dave Kellett and Shortpacked! by David Willis

Outstanding Sci Fi Comic: Schlock Mercenary by Howard Tayler and Starslip Crisis by Kristofer Straub

Outstanding Superhero/Action Comic: Evil Inc by Brad Guigar

2.) The server seems to have had an electron jump where it should not, as the 1/31/07 strip does not seem to want to post. Let me assure you that it is a life-altering, hilarious strip, and that you should definitely keep your eyes peeled for it when it finally appears, as it may help you with any weight-loss problems, relationship insecurities, work difficulties, or vericose veins. It's that good. (Dang shame the server picked today to lock up.)

3.) Also! My buddies Kris Straub and Scott Kurtz are launching their big project PVP: The Series Feb. 1st. If you're a PVP fan -- you should definitely check this out!
