Long Distance #3 in stores TODAY

Enter the Long Distance Contest… if you can!

There’s a secret Long Distance contest. Well, the secret is how to enter. The first twenty five people who can figure out how to enter will win this awesome print, featuring the covers for all four issues, standard and variants. It features artwork by Lora Innes, Sean Tiffany, Mike Collins and Tony Fleecs as well as, of course, me.

The contest runs in every issue. Right now about ten people have figured it out, so there are still almost fifteen chances left!

My SDCC 2015 Appearance Schedule

Thursday • IDW Booth 2714 • 11:00am-12:00pm

A My Little Pony signing at the IDW booth. The first issue of Tony Fleecs’ and my Attack of the Living Apples starring Flutterbat has an SDCC variant, so be sure to pick that up as well. I’ll be signing with Agnes Garbowska, Tony Fleecs, Jeremy Whitley, and Bobby Curnow.

I also designed the cover of the exclusive Friendship is Magic trade (featuring the art of Amy Mebberson), too.

Saturday • IDW Booth 2714 • 10:00am-11:00am

Long Distance #2 will be at the show, and Lora Innes (who did the awesome variant cover for #1, and also does the super-awesome The Dreamer) and I will be signing then.

Trivia: The Dreamer is often seen on sale at Abby’s bookstore in Love and Capes.

Saturday • Room 24ABC ª 7:30pm-8:30pm

Dr. Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions) and Dr. Ali Mattu (The Psych Show) step into the pop culture ring to debate the psychology of teamwork, rebellion, and galactic war. Panelists include Robert Meyer Burnett (Free Enterprise), Thom Zahler (Love and Capes), Consetta Parker (Rancho Obi-Wan), and Amy Ratcliffe (Star Wars Insider). Join a side, but remember: phasers and lightsabers are no match for this battle of wits! Refereed by Brian Ward (Comics, Assembled!)

I’m gonna bust ’em up.

Sunday • Room 24ABC • 1:00pm-2:00pm

All-ages comics are important now more than ever in helping to bring in new and lapsed readers, from practically every demographic. BOOM! Studios associate editor Whitney Leopard leads a discussion on the significance of all-ages comics, from what they have achieved thus far to what lies ahead, with creators Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade), Thom Zahler (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic), Cecil Castellucci (Odd Duck), Ian McGinty (Munchkin), and Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy).

 

And, of course, all the rest of the time, I’ll be at Booth 2000 signing and selling next to the irritatingly-talented Andy Price.

Long Distance Comic Contest

Tomorrow sees the release of the first issue of Long Distance, my new project published by those fine people at IDW. I could use some help getting the word out, and so I turn to you.

Tweet something about the comic, along with the hashtag #longdistancecomic and I’ll enter you in a drawing for a two-character color commission of your choice. Tweet a picture of the comic along with it, and that will count for five entries! The contest will wrap up on June 17, 2015 at noon EST.

It’s my first brand-new thing since Love and Capes, so I’m both excited and nervous. Thanks for your support.
