What are the haps my friends

December 23rd, 2010: I stopped writing this comic part-way in to see if there is such a thing as a Batman train and it turns out there is, and it's ridiculous, and it pulls a Joker car. Ladies and gentlemen: how does that even make sense.

Machine of Death! That awesome little anthology that I co-edited with David and Matt is doing really well - it's now appearing in stores worldwide! If you're in Toronto, the Chapters at John and Richmond (by the giant Scotiabank Theatre) has the most copies in the city. In fact, it has copies on every floor: the Books with Buzz Wall on the first floor, the Staff Picks wall on the second floor, and in Sci-Fi/Fantasy Anthologies on the third floor. So awesome! I'm going to be stopping by today to sign them too - perhaps, the perfect last-minute gift idea?? It's definitely not bad, anyway!

If you're NOT in Toronto, but still in Canada, then I've still got good news! now stocks Machine of Death, which is awesome. If you're not in Canada, I TOTALLY STILL HAVE GOOD NEWS:

Indiebound has a list of independent bookstores that carry the book near you! And finally, The Book Depository has Machine of Death, sells books worldwide, and includes free worldwide shipping with every order. This is excellent.

So there is a self-published book of awesome illustrated stories, the #1 Amazon bestseller that accidentally cheezed off Glenn Beck, now available anywhere you are worldwide! Please, enjoy.

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before or on these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 5th: Last day that ALL US shipping methods are safe.
December 12th: Last day that to use USPS Priority or Express for international orders!
December 13th: Only USPS Priority Express or FedEx 2- for guaranteed Christmas delivery.
December 18th-December 19th: FedEx 2-Day and Overnight might work, but no promises!!

Here that is in GRAPHIC FORM!

One year ago today: A false document is when you refer to or quote books and stuff that don't exist in real life, but your whole story pretends like they do. Like when Star Wars reads his electricity bill!!
