Saturday, November 26th (which, depending on when you read this is tomorrow, today or in the past) is the date during which the 3rd annual Genghis Con will be strutting its stuff all over Waterloo Ave in Cleveland, Ohio.  I exhibited at the show during its first year, and am excited to return, this year (smuggling Sam Sharpe in my suitcase). 

Here are the "deets:"
The Genghis Con
Saturday, November 26, 2011
11am - 6pm
Beachland Ballroom
15711 Waterloo Rd.
Cleveland, OH, USA, Planet Earth (sorry Martians)

Flyer by Kevin Fagan (related to Matt?)
It'll be tons of fun, so if you're near the Cuyahoga river, follow it to Cleveland, and the Beachland Ballroom.

Sam will be sharing a table with me and have his brand new (and freakin awesome) comic, Viewotron #1, which will soon be a name that is mentioned in the same breath as Optic Nerve, or Ganges, or maybe Betty and Veronica Digest.

I will have the Plot #1 which I hope you will read and enjoy.

no debut

In my last blog I excitedly announced the debut of oh boy, COMICS! #2 at this weekend's Minneapolis Indie Xpo (free and open to the public, come one come all!).  Unfortunately that debut will not be happening.

UGH!  I was so close!  I staid up so late two nights ago, pasting up the master (and the master for a new free minicomic, Not Worth It, Number Fun!).   Looking at the past year's "extra" comics I had drawn (nearly 50 pages!), all together in one volume was really exciting.  It -along with Not Worth It, and a near-constant listening of They Might Be Giants' new Album Raises New and Troubling Questions (which is awesome)- had reminded me how important drawing unimportant comics is as a way to keep oneself fresh while working on larger more significant projects.

but then my backpack got stolen yesterday.

my sketchbook!
my computer! (if you see a dirty white macbook with a Quimby's sticker covering the Apple logo, that's mine)
some items not worth noting -like left over Halloween Candy, a zine I was reading, a CD I never got to listen to, oh and

I'm quite angry about this, but more than anything I'm really disappointed these comics wont be available at MIX.

The good news is, I will still be exhibiting at MIX with my good friend Sam Sharpe, and I'll have copies of the Plot #1, which is only a few months old, and I think a pretty good comic.
