Auctions close midday today!

Attention, all ye supporters of the fine arts!

(No, wait. You fine-art folks… pay thou no attention at all. I’m looking for those more interested in obtaining the hurried scribblings of a hack cartoonist…)

The auctions mentioned in my previous post close in just two and a half hours! Act now!

It's been a crazy week!

Just in case you didn't see Dave's livejournal post: Agnes Quill has been optioned for film by Paramount!

Twenty-twenty-twenty Four Hours To Go I Wanna Be Webcomic'd

Wow - lots of news and stuff for the day before Halloween and five (5!) days until the end of the Dubya era in the US of A.  (Btw fellow Americans - get out there and vote on November 4th - early if it's allowed in your state..  I already did myself)

BUSINESS
Advertising platform Project Wonderful warns - autosurfing sites are a really bad idea (and a violation of PW's TOS).

DJ Coffman likes what he sees from T-shirt printer Redbubble.com.

Don't miss Howard and Sandra Tayler's guide to shipping -- there's clearly a lot you can learn from their experience before trying to sell your own t-shirts or books.

INTERVIEWS
The New Yorker has an interview with Dilbert creator Scott Adams.

CBR has an interview with Smile creator Raina Telgemeier.

Daily Cross Hatch has an interview with Slow Wave creator Jesse Reklaw.

HOLLYWOOOOOOD!!
Paramount has acquired the screen rights to Dave Roman's supernatural detective series, Agnes Quill.  I've read Agnes stories before (click here for the webcomic version) and just picked up a collection from Dave at this year's SPX (the collection is from SLG, published in 2006).  You never know how these deal will turn out -- movie gets made or development hell -- but I have to say, this is a great premise for a movie.  I could easily see a version of it as Ghostbusters crossed with Buffy.

BASIC TRAINING
Comicspace Colonel Joey Manley is looking for comics about military life.  He lists several he's found already.

for the kids!

Join Raina Telgemeier, Matt Loux, and Dave Roman on Sunday, November 9, as they celebrate the release of three kid-friendly graphic novels: Baby-sitters Club #4: Claudia and Mean Janine; Salt Water Taffy #2: A Climb Up Mt. Barnabas; and The Adventures of Tymm #1: Alien Circus!

They'll be at Brooklyn's favorite comics store: ROCKETSHIP!

Parents and kids welcome! Cookies and Ice cream will be served!

heart of the matter

This week's Astronaut Elementary teaches as well as entertains...

It's almost time...for SPX!!

Saturday and Sunday, October 4th and 5th, you can find me and the Comics Bakery at the Marriott Bethesda North Conference Center, in lovely Bethesda, Maryland. We'll be stationed at Table G15-16, which happens to be right by the ballroom entrance. Same spot we had last year!

(The following is a poorly thought out ramble. I hope you enjoy it.)

COMICON 2008 ... in which I was there and saw things and it was awesome

Here we go, the Comicon Report. Lets see if I can wrap this up in under three million words.

That went faster than I thought, once i started.

This is the State of Things, I'm Frank Stasio.

The term comic strip may bring to mind the Sunday morning funnies, Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Baby Blues, or Doonesbury, but these days comic strip are hardly confined to the pages of newspapers.
More and more comics are on-line and artists exposure on the Internet have made it easier than ever to make a career out of drawing in frames.

Gotta any plans for next week?

I will be all over the San Diego Comic Con! Here's where to look:

Base of Operations: The Comics Bakery
P2, in the Small Press section. That lines up with aisle 1900, at the very edge of Small Press, so we should be pretty easy to find! Look for the Comics Bakery banner! Also tabling there are fan-favorites like Raina Telgemeier, John Green and Marion Vitus.
