Protestlytizingon July 21, 2010
Leaving on a plane for San Diego Comic-Con in 6 hours. Please post your “geek protest sign” slogans in the comments.
I will have this comic as a special print available at The Topatoco Booth (#1231) in the Webcomics Pavillion. One of the signs is left blank so that I can personalize a slogan for you when you buy the print. It looks like this:
I’m not going to comment on the WBC protesting comic-con (because it promotes false idol worship) since it will just lead to them getting more attention. Dumb, hateful people are predictably hateful and dumb. Something kind of neat is happening as a result of the protest, though. Check out #godlovesbatman on Twitter [more info here]. Thanks to @melsh for titling the comic.
[skip the rest if you've read Monday's blog post. just some SDCC updates and reminders]
SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON!
I will be at the Topatoco booth (#1231) in the Webcomic’s Pavilion (just around the corner from Penny Arcade).
I will have a few shirts, my book, various comic prints, a few left over large prints, the special print mentioned above, and a new item:
Sketch Cards! For $5 I will do a quick sketch for you on a nice card that looks like this:
Pretty neat, huh? Sketches in HE books (that you buy) are free, and larger commissioned pieces are priced depending on complexity.
COMIC-CON EXCLUSIVE “Browncoat vs. Red Shirt” SHIRTS!!!
I did a couple of shirt designs for Quantum Mechanix, fine online retailer of various Firefly/Serentiy, Dr. Horrible, Battlestar and Star Trek Merch, that will be exclusively sold at Comic-Con (booth 3251, which is mid-hall, toward the back wall, near the break area) and likely never again. Pick a side and display your colors proudly.
DO YOU WANT A SAN DIEGO FANCY BASTARD MEETUP?
FB’s JustChristine and JonnyAce wants to organize a meetup for sometime during the con. Thursday night I will be at W00tstock. If you are interested make a comment. Follow me on Twitter for minute to minute updates as to what’s going on while I’m at Comic-Con.
