Homecoming to another home.
Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes last week! I am, as always, humbled by the love and support you folks show. There was no blog post on Thursday because my wife and I had a rare two days off together, so we spent it together doing a whole lot of nothing. There were some misadventures on my birthday, like the beach being too windy and my favorite restaurant being closed due to a broken air conditioner, but otherwise there wasn’t much to talk about. So instead of making another silly list or raving about my usual loves (comic books, astronomy, heavy metal, etc.) I decided to give the blog a break.
We’re closing in on the end of Issue 5 and thus the conclusion of our first storyline, “The Ninth Worm Hole.” All storylines will be five Issues long around here, as has been our plan from the beginning. We will have the usual two week break of lore filler, spotlighting the Races of the Millennium Federation… or, as you will see next week, one particular race of the Federation.
The best bit of news has been saved for last. Garth and I will be proudly returning to ConnectiCon this weekend! This convention is a homecoming for us, even though neither of us hail from Connecticut. Not only did Garth and I meet there, but it’s long been viewed as a showcase for webcomics. For years it’s been a place where up-and-coming webcomickers can show off their stuff alongside grizzled old webcomic veterans (a.k.a. grouches) like me. I host one of the con’s most popular events, The Cosplay Death Match, which I’ve seen grow from a humble idea to a show-stopping extravaganza. It’s an exciting weekend, and I can’t wait to go back. We hope to see you there!
