As a kid I always dreamed that physics would work this way. Instead it simply broke the umbrella.
Yes: those near or accessible to the DC area, I will be tabling and paneling in Rockville MD (the D.C. area) September 21-23 as a guest at InterventionCon. Last year I was there and had a great time and really enjoyed it. It is geeky and friendly and has a really great guest list of people with time and space to meet each one.
Here’s the schedule of panels I’ll be on (the full InterventionCon schedule is here)
Friday 5pm: “Designing Your First Book”
Panelists: Chris Flick, Barb Fischer, Christoper Baldwin, Chris Impink
Friday 7pm: “How to Survive as a Writer in the Business of Webcomics, Comics and Other Visual Media”
Panelists: Tony DiGerolamo, H. Caldwell Tanner, Christopher Baldwin
Saturday 3pm: “Back in my day: The webcomic veterans panel”
Panelists: Christopher Baldwin, Shaenon Garrity, Jennie Breeden, Danielle Corsetto
Despite things working out well for the three and their picnic, and that I would have been as gung-ho as them, I’m still with Vachel in that the difference is perhaps very mightily thin.
The punchline here is very secondary, although if you look at a dog’s face when you rub them behind the ears, it is a very apt comparison. But the strip really hangs on the main truism, which I wrote from the heart.
I almost love getting caught in the cold damp rain, because the feeling a warm shower, putting on a dry bathrobe and slippers, and then even better — a fire and some cocoa, has got to be one of the most divine things ever. Which is funny, because you need the awfulness of being cold and damp or else it’s not the same.
