i missed the build-up to HEROESCON this year 'cause i got all caught up in the Perhapanauts "Perfect Cover" Pin-up Contest.
which is still on.
your deadline to get a pin-up in to us is wednesday--that's this wednesday--june 17th, at 12 midnight (est). the winner will be chosen on thursday evening by--because i don't want to have to pick one out of all these fantastic pieces--comics legend, nick cardy!! (he doesn't know this yet--please don't tell him...) the winning pin-up will be posted here on friday with all of the incredible entries and published in an upcoming issue of the perhapanauts, which is awesome!
and, of course, the reason we will all be together--craig, rico, sharon, matt, suzanne, christian, leanne, rod, scott, jason copland, kelly, nick, maryanne, and me (and i'm sure i'm missed somebodys...) is because we will be at
if you want to come to what is, in my humble opinion, one of the best comics conventions in the country, then swing by and see us at heroes! we're packed and psyched and will have, not only the recently released perhpanauts trade (full of action, excitement, and a pantload of extras!!) but the hot-off-the-presses, brand new perhapanauts no.6, featuring stories by scott weinstein and leanne hannah, me and jason armstrong...oh, yeah, and some stuff by me and craig thrown in there for fun! all lovingly colored by our own rico renzi! it's a cool ish you're not gonna wanna miss!
so we waited until all three final episodes of pushing daisies were lined up on the dvr to sit down and watch them, last night in our own mini-marathon--and it was wonderful and sad all at once. three great episodes and all we could think is how stupid these networks have become, canceling shows with such potential, such a light. pushing daisies was as much a work of art, an expression of love, as it was a tv program.
what a loss...
if you didn't watch it, never had a chance to catch it, check it out on netflix or abc.com or wherever you get your shows.

(sorry if that was a tough one. and old favorite and one my nephew's been playing over the past few weeks. it's been stuck in my head and that's just such a great line.)
