Upcoming appearances this spring and summer!

I’m getting ready to hit the road for a bunch of conventions! If you’re near any of these places, I’d love to see you there. I’d be pleased to shake your hand, make you a Roll-a-Sketch, or whatever!

Note as well that I’m not always listed in show programs or directories under my name, or Wondermark: sometimes I’m with TopatoCo, other times with other groups — but I always try to mention my location for each show here on the site in advance, so be sure to check in.

PLUS OF COURSE I perform improv comedy every other Monday night at M.i.’s Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, CA with my house team “Cool Boss”! Those shows are always FREE so STOP ON BY.

THIS WEEKEND: Emerald City Comicon!

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I’m at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle! I’ll be at the TopatoCo table (booth 1002) with my trusty Roll-a-Sketch sketchbook, as well as copies of Emperor of the Food Chain, Classy Lady Like You Will Love the Smell of My Butt, and free convention-exclusive cards for the Machine of Death card game!

Speaking of which, here is a new video about SAID GAME. It is about contingencies!

Wednesday Night: FAN FRICTION comedy reading!

This Wednesday, December 12, I’ll be performing in a show called Fan Friction! I, Douglas Sarine (aka Ask A Ninja himself), and several other crackerjack comedians have each written a piece of self-insert fan fiction, and we will read them live on stage for your delight. It should be a good time!

Mine is called The Peculiar Case of the Fighting Quartet. It might involve a certain famous detective meeting a certain famous band of turtle brothers. The show starts at 9pm at M.i.’s Westide Comedy Theater in Santa Monica!


• On Friday night at the same theater is the Tin Pan Radio Theatre improvised old-timey radio show (which I’m not in, but which is great)

• And my improv team Battlesocks next performs on Monday December 17, 8pm. That one’s even free!

This weekend: APE in San Francisco

Quick note to say I’ll be at APE this coming weekend in San Francisco (booth 821)! I’ll have the new book, of course. SPEAKING OF WHICH: prize drawings will occur this week! Stay tuned!

Next week: SPX in Bethesda, MD!

Next weekend, September 15-16, is the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland! Such a fun show, I’m looking forward to it immensely. (And check out this great poster by Chris Ware!)

I’ll have several new things at the show:

First and foremost, my new book! The latest collection of Wondermark comics, Emperor of the Food Chain, will premiere next weekend. So excited! This one’s been a long time coming.

Also, a new li’l collection! Inspired by the Peanuts paperbacks I devoured as a kid, this is a book collecting all the best animal comics from the entire history of Wondermark.

It is also a deliberate attempt at design minimalism, which (if you’ve read any of my previous books) you know is a problem for me.

A brand-new edition of Machine of Death, designed to be as cheap as possible! Perfect for gift-giving, compact enough to toss in a bag, and a low-risk way to grab the book if you’ve been on the fence.

Also (not pictured) we’ll be offering the Machine of Death ebook on a thumb drive — with the complete audiobook and a bunch of songs thrown in as well.

And, of course, I’ll be doing Roll-a-Sketches! Here’s one I did last weekend in Chicago (click for bigger):

All these books will be made available online right after SPX. I’ll be glad to sketch in the books at the show as well! It might be…THE BEST TIME EVER???
