Yay, FedEx brought me my Robin statues!  I heard through the grapevine (Twitter, that is) that Robin required some assembly.  This is sometimes required for Patch Together statues, depending on their shape, but my designs had mostly avoided it thus far.  We have a Monica statue from Wapsi Square that had to have its head glued on.  And Amber needed her corn popper put together and fit through her fists.  But no gluing yet!  Certainly not this much.

Anyway, fun story.  Because my life is a Wile E Coyote cartoon, I took one of her hands and her torso put two drops of glue on her wrist, and held the ends together for about five minutes.  After that five minutes I checked to see if the glue had held.  The parts came right apart, but my fingers, of course, were glued together.  Grar.

There's a handful still available!  Get her while she lasts.

Get $5 off by preordering now!

The Mike statue is still stuck in customs (probably because he's calling all of their moms a prostitute), but that doesn't mean we can't forge ahead full speed on the next project!

Since the Rule 34 website (google it yourself) is apparently all about the torsos of the DeSanto girls, how about a 3D representation of one?  Check out the cropped photo of the first pass on Patch Together's Robin DeSanto statue.  It's friggin' godlike.  These guys just keep getting better and better at making my characters into tangible things, short the unavoidable speedbumps such as Mike's Impossible Hair.

Robin is still up for preorder, and if you order her during the preorder period, you get $5 off the price for jumping on it so early!  That's a steal, especially for how amazing this thing is gonna be when it's done.

Rule 34 is not so big about Amber.  They only care about her if she happens to be in the same edited image as Robin.

Mike's getting shipped soon, so I figgered I'd put together some control art for Robin, who's gonna be next. After some Twitter-based deliberation, we decided to go with my original "speedster smoke" design. Go give her some love!

What if in little while (a month or more) I put up a statue design for Joyce or Walky?  Would you folks be willing to support two statues at roughly the same time, or staggered, or is one every six months the right pace?

Hey, everyone, I'm back!  Penguicon was great!  My next con is in two weeks in New Jersey, at WildPig with Randy Milholland (Something*Positive), Daniel Corsetto (Girls With Slingshots) and others!  Mark your calendars.

Check me out in my mini-booth, looking like I've just gotten up and eaten 30 bagels.  How do I find the time to both collect toys and eat so much?  Hmm.

The "Relationshipocalypse" storyline is over, and I hope everyone enjoyed it!  Lord, I love writing Amber and Mike like nothing else, and from the things people were telling me at Penguicon, I'm not alone in being enthralled by their twisted little romance.

Here's the way April 9th's comic originally ended.  I thought Amber'd been a little too naked recently at her expense, so I redrew the last panel at a different angle.  Also, I figgered it'd be funnier if we didn't actually see her and Mike in the act.  The mind can come up with way more compromising positions than my PG-13(ish) strip is allowed to portray, so...

Plus I got that extra little punchline!

I'm determined to get two books out this year.  Shortpacked! Book 3 is the preorder everyone should be familiar with by now, but Roomies! Book 2 better be out by the end of this year, too!  It's faaarr too soon to solicit it, since SP!B3 is still in production, but not too soon to finish putting it together.  An idea for the cover hit me last night, and no sooner than this afternoon I had it completed to my satisfaction.

Take it in.

Also, I was sorely in need of some freebies to hand out at C2E2, so I designed and ordered some double-sided bookmarks.  There's a strip on each side - my recent Skeletor/Luthor team-up strip for ToyNewsI seemed suitable, and of course you gotta have Batman DDR on there, so I cropped it down into the requisite number of panels to fit.  I'll be handing these out at Penguicon this weekend.  A huge purpose of convention-attending I've been neglecting is the romancing of new readers.  This'll help me fix that.  (If you're already a reader, you're still, of course, allowed to grab one.)

Since the new site went live, one of its most awesome features is the ability to order prints of individual strips simply by clicking the $ icon below each strip.  Ha ha ha, so obviously the first one that got bought was Mike's freaky smile creep show.  This is great, because I had to take this file into the print shop and have them give me strange looks as it comes up on the screen and again out of the printer.  How much is my dignity worth?  Apparently $10 and shipping.
