A heads up: my Shattered Glass Ravage auction ends today!  Also, dudes, I was just alerted that the Mike statue is getting ready to ship!  Hot damn! just got a major facelift.  (Yeah, that's why the forums have been down for the past few days.  We're movin' stuff around!)  Totally check out the new site.  It's a little bare right now, but beautiful, and it will be crammed full of things (not unlike your mom) in no time.

All three of us will be at San Diego Comic-Con in a week, of course, at the usual spot.  Look for the sea of orange!

I'm back from ConnectiCon, and, by golly, I had a blast.  And so did Maggie!  The ConnectiCon folks are awesome people who will bring you donuts and will find you five dollar bills when you run out.   They also play a mean game of Paper Telephone.

Also, I learned that ConnectiCon attendees rightfully believe that Beast Wars, even Cheetor, was totally awesome.

I will miss the Hartford Marriot's sultry elevator voice.

Here's the Primal I promised you yesterday. Someone asked me for a first-season Primal art today, and I had one ready-made! So he's gone.

The girl who asked for Cheetor on Friday came back to buy him, so I replaced him with Blackarachnia.

Optimus Primal got bought, so he got replaced by Megatron.

I bought a $5 blindpacked Mini-Con. (Ironlunge!) He's a Predacon like Dinobot, so they got to hang out.

Maggie bought some blindpacked Full Metal Panic figures. Dinobot met them.

Her name is Teresa Testarosa. Her character is Italian. Everything insists on romanizing her name as "Teletha." It's retarded.

Maggie and I are poised for our 10-11 hour journey tomorrow to the fair lands of Connecticut!  That's right, ConnectiCon is upon us!  By loading up the program guide PDF thinger on their site, I have discovered that I am at booth 904, which is in the far back with all the other webcomics.  I say "far back," but it's not like this is Comic-Con San Diego, so you'll find me easy enough.  Just look for the area not entirely covered with scroll art of Rei Ayanami.

It looks like my booth is next to Carlos Ferro's, with whom I did a toy collecting panel last year and was told some time ago that I might be doing one again!  It might be on Saturday at 2:30?  That's when I find a toy-collecting-themed panel on the schedule, so I'm guessing that's it.  There are also various webcomics panels that I am not sure if I am invited to.

ConnectiCon is always an ongoing unveiling of surprises.

Anyway, I'll have Roomies! book 1, Shortpacked! books 2 and 3, some magnets, some bumper stickers, some art prints, and the super-awesome Brings Back the Eighties poster.  I'll also have Maggie, who will be much better at conversation than me.

Ethan is me.  Well, only sometimes, but this is definitely one of those times.

(The dog is based on Meredith Gran's adorable puppy, Heidi, who I got to meet last Wednesday during the book signing.  She loves her ball more than life itself.)

This weekend is ConnectiCon!   I will travel across the country to Hartford, Connecticut, where the folks sure love their Dunkin Donuts.  Don't they know that I'm a Tim Horton's boy?  I'm told I'll be down in the Real Dealer's Room this year!  So you'll be able to find me!  I'll be next to the other webcomics.  Just look around the guy dressed as Goku, and that'll be me right there.  Maggie will also be with me, to make sure I don't bite anyone for trying to touch my tennis ball action figures.

I should probably make a Shattered Ravage print or something.  I think his popularity has eclipsed my own.
