Above: A new sticker to accompany my new pin!
For worthwhile and obvious reasons, Emerald City Comic Con was cancelled this past week. (It’s been tentatively rescheduled for August.)
So, like many folks for whom that convention is a tentpole of their business year, I did all the usual prep for the show, but didn’t go to the show itself! No one did!
It was to be the first in-person opportunity for folks to get a copy of my latest book, the 300-page monstrosity Friends You Can Ride On:
Which I’m pleased to say is now complete, in stock, and taking up quite an impressive number of shelves in my studio. Each copy is safely nestled in plastic, waiting to be sent to its new home.
This book collects over 500 Wondermark comics (it’s three times as thick as my previous books), plus as per usual I’ve included dozens of pages of bonus and previously unpublished material.
As long as the post office is running, I’m still shipping. So please feel free to claim your own copy now!
For those who don’t want anything to come in the mail, I’ve also now made available:
For just a few bucks each (or more if you’re feeling generous), you can download all the Wondermark comic collections to date, to read on the digital device of your choice.
Or print out, I guess! Once you have the file, I can’t stop you! (Probably cheaper just to buy the printed editions, though.)
I’m also still shipping all these handsome pins.
