Don gets ready for Straight Face Comics first Con. And he walks that path alone. The one blue ninja–boothless–to seek fame and fortune. He is Donald Poquiz.
Today’s strip is based on somewhat real life events. Normally I do most of the talking with you guys Don will duck in with an occasional comment or occasional strip idea, but for the most part he doodles in the shadows. On Thursday the Con opens and I cannot attend. Don puffed up he practiced some angles he was shaping his mind to give those in the webcomic industry the networking experience of their lives.
Then one slight snafu. Don cut his tongue. He wouldn’t tell me why or how so I was forced to make it up. Above you see the results. Not only will he have to go and network with a new found speech impediment, I’ve had to listen to him talk this way on the phone all week.
Don will actually be printing and giving Scott Kurtz a signed copy of this comic. Part of me hops things go well and Scott laughs at it and it works as a nice ice breaker. The other half of me hopes that he’s creeped out by Don. Either way Don will be reporting back to you with comic con events on Monday. If you have not heard of Kurtz he draws a webcomic called PvP hosts a weekly podcast on webcomics and wrote a snazy book on the subject. I consider it essential reference material if you care to write or produce webcomics.
For any of you who participated in our Links for Avatars promotion, you still will be receiving said avatars. We’ve just had a lot of extra stuff associated with getting our promo items done in time with comic con. The printer fucked up some of the proofs so Don had to go back again tonight. So we’re sorry for the delay, but even more sorry that the printer is a retarded fuckhead.
