What are the haps my friends

May 26th, 2006: I'll be at Anime North today, Saturday, and Sunday, at the Beguiling table. Woo! SPEAKING OF THIS WEEKEND, May 27th - this Saturday night is the party me and Bryan Lee O'Malley are having in Toronto! It is a book release party for our two new books: his Scott Pilgrim book and my Dinosaur Comics book and it promises to be AWESOME. You can read more at The Beguiling's web site, or on this handy invitation card! THE WHOLE WORLD IS INVITED. I'll be making Dinosaur Comics live. It is likely to be hilariously disasterous! I hope to see you there. My parents will be there. WILL YOU?

Here are some great pictures of people in Dinosaur Comics shirts! Here's Mack and here's Moritz. And here's Keiris and her adorable baby, BOTH in Dinosaur Comics shirts! Michael and his adorable cat-son Pete also cut a striking figure. Keiris and Michael are wearing shirts that are no longer available, making them indier than thou.

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?
