I had a really great time at SPX! Thank you to everyone who came to the show; it was a pleasure meeting you all. Achewood won the Ignatz Award, but that’s fine because Achewood is a great comic. Plus, a gorilla who may have been Chris Onstad accepted the award, so that’s hard to beat. I fully expect this video to win some kind of award of its own, in the same way that the telecast of the Oscars is itself eligible for an Emmy.
In delightful news, I have a short story featured this week on the horror-fiction podcast Pseudopod! I actually wrote the story a while ago for a competition (and won an award for it), but never mentioned it because it couldn’t be read online. Now you can listen to the talented Dani Cutler read it aloud. It, uh, differs a bit from the normal tone of Wondermark.
Speaking of podcasts, I mentioned before that you can hear me on the current episode of Webcomics Weekly, but failed to add that you can listen online or download the MP3 without having to subscribe to the podcast: it’s “Episode 10″ on this page. I was recovering from a bad cold on the day we recorded, so if I sound murky or addled, that’s what I’m going to blame it on.
