The Day After Next Independence Day

What are they going to call the sequel to Independence Day? ID4 2? ID5? Independence Day II: Never Wear White After Labor Day? Assuming it actually gets made I’m on board just as long as it makes exactly NO sense like the original did… didn’t.

UPCOMING APPEARANCES: I’ll be in Austin, TX signing HE Books at Rogue’s Gallery Comics on Saturday Oct. 24 from 1-3pm, and at the Ka-Baam!! Improv Comedy Show Friday 10/23 and Saturday 10/24. I will also have books for sale there. More info on these events HERE.

I am eyeing a few more TX appearances for November. Dallas on 10/14 and Lubbock on 10/7. Comment if you are interested in me actually doing those things.

I will also be at Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle, WA in March. More info on that as it gets closer.

BOOK NEWS: I’m back from Baltimore and the books are in my garage, which means they will begin shipping this week. Since I have so many sketches to do, shipping may be slow and steady but it will be consistent. When you get your book, how about you post a pic of you with it on Twitter [follow me? why not] with the hash tag #HEBook.

Oh, you haven’t preordered the book? Well the preorder is over and now its just the ORDER (minus the pre). All preorders will ship first, but new orders will ship fast, so get up on it and book yourself in the thing.

Yo, Homes, Smell Ya’ Later

No, I didn’t concoct this ridiculous sitcom-pitch scenario. Will “The Fresh Prince” Smith is opening a school (like for children) that will have curriculum based on the teachings of Scientology.

Here’s hoping for history textbooks with spaceships, “Carlton Dance” aerobics in gym class, graduation commencement by Tom Cruise in a (historically accurate) Xenu mask and, most of all, Dean Jazzy Jeff.

If it’s not too late to enroll, I’m sending my daughter there to be brainwashed… educated in the ways of our savior, L. Ron Hubbard.

I guess this is the first appearance of the HE-Minis, or HE-Kids or Lil’s HE’s or whatever. I almost gave Eli the beard even though he’s supposed to be 8. I don’t think his actually came in until he was 11.
