Sheldon @ Long Beach Comic-Con!

Monday, September 14, 2009 - 07:06 PM

Heads up for Southern Californians: I'm happy to announce that "Sheldon" and I will be special guests at the first annual Long Beach Comic-Con, Oct 2-4, at the Long Beach Convention Center.

I'm really rooting for this convention, as LA needs a great comics show...and this looks like it could be it. Already, the guest list includes cartoonists like Berke Breathed of "Bloom County", the cartoonist who's perhaps most responsible for me wanting to be a cartoonist. And he NEVER does these things, so I'm super excited. There's tons of other great guests, too, from Stan Lee to Jim it's gonna be awesome.

I'll be at corner booth #149, right up front, and will have all the Sheldon books, prints, and miscellany, as well as any Original Art you'd like me to bring for the discounted convention price. I'll be givin' out free sketches all three days of the show.

Head over to the site and pick up your tickets now. This is a show we should all get behind.

Slow News Day, To The Extreme

You know, no doubt, of my extraordinary love for the British biscuit, Hobnobs (Which are now sold in the U.S., I'm happy to say! Although my cardiologist is less happy about it.)

Anyway, kind Sheldon reader Jonathan C. sent in this note related to Hobnobs. You have to check out the cream-puff (ha!) news article he mentions:

I wanted to start off by saying that your comic is amazing. Actually, when my girlfriend was going through chemo, I'd send her strips here and there to cheer her up, so thank you for making such amazing work that could bring a little cheer to someone going through something so rough.

Anyways, onto business. I saw this article the other day and I immediately thought of your love of Hobnobs.

Could your beloved snack be a ruthless thug in disguise?

It could indeed, Jonathan! :)

On a separate note: Let's hear it for "Metro" newspapers, bringing you the cutting, hard-charging news you demand.
