Heyo, finally home.
While at a-kon, had a chance to bump into a lot of people I know, which has fun. It was also fun to talk with the Antarctic Press guys a bit, in particular John Katz who does Legends from Darkwood (along with Chris Reid, the writer for the story :) We did a little gift art trade, and oddly enough the Pirogoeth drawing I did for him came out looking not too bad, so I asked him to scan it for me so I could post it as a DPD if he didn't mind. When I got home I found a link to the scan sitting in my email box. Thanks John :)
I was bad today, and I admit it. I was supposed to work on the next MT comic on the plane, but instead I wrote about 5 pages worth of development on another project that I'll be working on sometime down the road (yes, that other project I will not name because people ask me about it every time I turn around and ask me when it's coming out ^^;; I'll say first thing in 2005, but don't hold me to it). I was really in the mood to do so for some reason, and i was able to work out some story problems that have been bugging me all year. Funny how things can really clear up and click into place if you let them sit long enough :)
I also finally got my copy of Clannad. :) No, I am not going to load it and play it right now. No really. ^^;; Well, uh... if I disappear for a few days, you know what happened. :P It's all Pocky's fault. And Uguuu-sensei. Blame them. They are evil.
On a more serious note, I'm seriously thinking I'm gonna just ditch working on the comic tonight. I wanna see a movie, damnit. I've wanted to see a friggin movie since Hellboy hit the theaters and I STILL haven't see it yet. I assume its not in the theater anymore, but there are a few decent ones i think Seraphim and i can suffer thru. :)
So, to those of you all set to send me one of those pissy little emails about how sick and tired you are of me not delivering comics when I say I will, and how tired you are of DPDs, save your keystrokes. It's not like you are gonna say anything i haven't been hearing week after week for four years. For the rest of you, I appologize for the "1 DPD, 2 Comics" week rather than the "1 DPD, 3 comics" week i was originally shooting for. This is the way things are when i have to travel around.
That said, I'm going to be home for a good stretch of time (nothing till San Diego Comic Con, and then nothing after that for a while :) and the only thing that has messed the release schedule up this year has been trips... of course, there is still a lot of work to do for the new store we are opening at the end of July... aw, hell, like it'd be MT if i was reliable. :P You can form your own opinions about the comic schedule in the next month :)
Me? i'm gonna go see a friggin movie.
