Our 2012 Banner--and the return of the "Five for Friday"!


as the title says, your "five for friday!" are back and waiting for you at the bottom of this post. for the past year or so, a LOT of people have been begging me to bring back our little end-of-the-week trivia questions and i really, really hope they're everything you remember...

but first, some stuff...

over the past few months, craig and i have been running around in all sorts of different directions, getting pages written, drawn, colored, and lettered, coordinating stories with our wonderful guest artists--thank you lauren, matt, christian, matt, and eric!--arranging for a star-studded line-up of fantastic cover artists, ironing out all the details with Image, and planning a grass-roots promotional campaign (of which this very blogpost is a part...) to widen awareness of the PERHAPANAUTS and get the word out that this is a fun book that people should be reading!
along with all that we also had paying work that needed to get done and, oh, yeah...personal life stuff that's always going on...

but one of the things that we somehow took for granted and that got overlooked in our mad rush a month ago to get convention-ready for Heroescon in charlotte was the fact that we got a new banner to show off at shows! craig was on fire the week or so before the show and, while on the phone discussing what our new banner should be, craig suggested it be something that showed the characters clearly and said that he had an idea for a very slight upshot featuring the six of them and then, while we were still on the phone, sketched this up and sent it to me before we'd even finished the conversation!

the final banner itself looks like this...

so many people dug the banner--and were asking if we were gonna do a print of it or something--that we made it our postcard for convention season as well. it's smaller, much more manageable, and i think the size gives it a bit of a cuteness factor too!

also available at our table this season, we have an exclusive PERHAPANAUTS: Danger Down Under ASHCAN previewing a variety of pages from stories from the upcoming series! It showcases the artistic talents of MATT WIERINGO, CHRISTIAN LEAF, ERIC HENSON and, oh yeah, craig rousseau. I'll be previewing most of those pages right here on this blog as our super-premiere draws closer--

--but if you're the type that can't wait, just send $2 for postage and handling to
Perhapanauts Ashcan and we'll get one in the mail to you right away!'ve been patient enough...

and now the
