The Kickstarter (Tal-nor.com/ks) is going strong; we just hit 25 backers and are a mere $428 away from hitting our goal. With 12 days left to go, I’m confident that we can make it before the deadline. I have some ideas for stretch goals, but first we need to make our funding goal. Remember that Kickstarter is all or nothing.
But enough about that I want to talk about the amazing comic book event I went to over the weekend. A huge thank you to everyone at Bmore into Comics (https://www.facebook.com/bmoreintocomics/) for having me as guest at the show. It was so much fun. Two rows of incredible comic creators, each of them doing exciting books. There were three great panels all about making comics. And most importantly, everyone was simply delightful to spend the afternoon with. The only down side is that I don’t live closer and had to leave right after the show.
On top of all that I got to hang out with one of my favs, our Cover artist Noella Whitney! I had a blast getting to catch up with her. If you have had the chance yet, go to her super fun comic http://broadsidecomic.com/
Even though he didn’t have a table, my friend and fellow comic writer Jordan Clark (http://jclarkcomics.squarespace.com/) came by to hang out. He brought me the most wonderful gift, a signed copy of this weeks Bitch Planet Triple Feature #2. Jordan wrote the one of the stories in Bitch Planet Triple Feature #2 and it is Fan-freakin-tastic!!! Seriously, my next email after this update will be to tell him how awesome his story is! And get this, the two other stories are just as good. Do yourself a favor and go get this book on Wednesday.
To hold you over until Wednesday, go check out the comics these fine creators make. Look here’s a handy list of links:

I would be remised if I didn’t mention one of my favorite people in all of comics and founder of Bmore into Comics, Monica Gallagher (http://www.eatyourlipstick.com/). I met Monica back at SPX back in ‘04 or ’05. I dug her art right away and after talking to her I quickly realized, she is the nicest person you’d ever meet. After years of seeing each other at show we became friends and she invited me to be part of Bmore #10. She was one of the first people to make me feel I belonged in comics, that I was a colleague. She couldn’t be there this time because she’s dealing with some heath stuff, but I’m, sure she’ll bounce back and be fine. You can check out another one of her comics here: http://www.webtoons.com/en/romance/assassin-roommate/list?title_no=1050
I think that enough awesome people to keep you busy reading comics from now until I ship out your rewards.
