I’m trying out Teespring with this new Bottlefly Boys shirt design for $20:
I did this art for a newspaper advertisement, but liked how it looked with this treatment. I’ve heard good things about Teespring from a number of people. Men’s and women’s sizes are on offer — if you like it, pre-order it! As of this post, if just 10 more people order, the shirts will get made.
Greetings all — just wanted to share two Broodhollow writeups with you all on this cloudy Monday.
- Robot 6 on Comic Book Resources has an overview of Angleworm so far, and how Zane’s situation has changed since Curious Little Thing. Pretty observant!
- Webcomic Relief has a more traditional and very kind review of the webcomic as a whole.
I was surprised to learn that people feel like this chapter is moving faster than the first book, when previously the consensus had been that it was moving slower! The slowness has been necessary — with the focus of Angleworm being more of an investigation and less a supernatural spook-em-up, the scares have given way to tension. It’s hard to maintain that, of course, when we all know Zane is innocent of this wrongdoing, right?
I mean, I wouldn’t turn the main character into something he wasn’t already, would I?
That would be bad form.
Just a reminder that this weekend (May 24-25) I will be at VanCAF at table G4. I’m also on a panel Sunday:
COMEDY IN THE COMICS: HOW TO BE HILARIOUS
Sunday, May 25th 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM
Hosted by Doug Savage
Featuring Ian Boothby, Angela Melick, Kris Straub
Being funny can be tough, especially when you’re trying to be funny. Angela Melick (Wasted Talent), Doug Savage (Savage Chickens), Kris Straub (Chainsawsuit), and Ian Boothby (Simpsons and Futurama comics) will talk about their experiences writing humour and share tips and tricks to help you unlock your inner comedian.
And something you might be interested in — I will have Bower Brigade pins on hand, as well as a new Broodhollow pin that I’m not posting pictures of. You will just have to come see it and get it for yourself. See you there!
I will be a special guest of VanCAF at the Roundhouse Community Rec Centre in Vancouver, May 24 and 25! It’s free to attend! Come see me at booth G4! Like the failed gaming network!
Two new pins are available in the store — the official Pinny Arcade pin from PAX East featuring Zane and Mercy, PLUS a very limited run of the Bower Brigade insignia pin! There are only about 100 of those in stock!
In other pin news, the Chainsawsuit PAX Prime 2013 pin is almost out of stock completely — only about 15 left. And for those who do not like paying for shipping, have you heard the official soundtrack for Curious Little Thing? 30 minutes of music!
