This coming weekend, October 4-5, I’ll be at MICE in Cambridge, MA., signing books, saying words at a panel, and… debuting a full color mini comic? Could be…

For the convention before the convention (known as “the internet”), the good people of MICE were nice enough to ask me some questions, to which I gave some rambling answers.

If you’re in the Cambridge/Boston area next weekend, I’ll hope to see you there, pet the weird-eyed marmoset poking out of your handbag, etc.

While preparing a talk for tomorrow, I was going back through The Daily Forlorn. And Tiny Elliott Gould was there at the beginning, waiting.

Hey, Tiny Elliott Gould. ‘Sup.

How to have your mind blown:

1. Design a character for a logo for a comedy show with insanely talented people on it.

2. Have said show garner insanely cool fans, one of which dresses up as said character at Comic-Con.

3. Attend Comic-Con to sign books, having no idea about said fan.

4. Have one of your favorite comedians, Stephen Colbert, dress up as Prince Hawkcat, attend Comic-Con (where you are signing books in the same building) and pitch a fake movie on his (Stephen Colbert’s) comedy show to the real guy dressed as the character you designed for a totally different comedy show.

5. Later that night, run into the fan dressed as your character on the street,  having no idea about the Colbert incident.

6. See said fan on Colbert, months later, and try to bend your mind around all the variables involved in this.

And: your mind is blown. Congratulations!

Just a post to say “I Love You!” to all my readers, watchers, followers and fans, especially those who take the time to write or post/send photos of my work out in the wild. I think I can speak for all creators when I say that sort of thing completely makes my day.

Thanks! A million times over. Group hug.
