PENSACON MEMORIES ONE

February 21, 2017
 

PENSACON MEMORIES ONE:
Just got back from Pensacon 2017 and it was awesome.  It’s like a nerd family reunion with all my nerd friends.  So many of us make this convention every year.  So , I just remember I have a blog and should be using it.
So , I’m gonna post some memories in me blog but just concentrate on one at a time… then the others will come later.
First day of Pensacon.  A bunch of us are eating breakfast at the big table like we do every year.  It’s breakfast time and the host hotel has a cool restaurant in the hotel.  We’re all eating there when in walks David Bradley.  That’s right , Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Strain, An Adventure in Space & Time (Doctor Who special).  That David Bradley.  He walks over and talks to Mike Ensley (the guy who started Pensacon) and then sits at the table behind us.  It’s neat and cool just to be eating a table away from a cool nice guy like that but then we all get up and start leaving when I pick up my big furry horned puppet, Rosco.  I carry this puppet to shows and cons and he’s been to every Pensacon.  David sees him and points saying, “That’s brilliant.”  So I step over and we talk about the puppet.  He asks if I’m doing a show over the weekend and I tell him no that the puppet just helps in selling my comics and art and I also do interviews with him.  We talk about the An Adventure in Time & Space show he did.  I thank him and go about my way.
Later that day I’m waiting while the Slyvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred set up so I can interview them when David walks up.  He asks the volunteer next to me if she’s met the Puppet.  He tells her that he had breakfast with the puppet and that the puppet ate all his food.  We have a good laugh and he goes on about his way.
So who do I run into on my way out of breakfast the next day?  That’s right , it’s David again and yes I do have the puppet.  He laughs and says, ” I just keep running into you and this puppet, don’t I.”  And yes, the puppet and myself ran into David for just about every breakfast.  Even though Monday morning Rosco the puppet was packed in the car for the ride home I did have my writing pen with me and the writing pen is a snowman puppet.  So at least I had a puppet of some sort when I ran into David again as I was leaving.
Stay tooned for more Pensacon Memories coming later I tells ya and have a bubbatastic day.

FREE COMICS & MAGAZINES

February 14, 2017

Free stuff is always good.  Am I right or am I right?  I’ve been putting comics on the web for free for years.  I’m still gonna be doing that but I’ve retooled how I’m gonna be doing it I tells ya what.

Every THREE MONTHS there will be a free comic on my ISSUU site.  The first one is there now, ZACK THE ZOMBIE HUNTER.  It is a humor comic.  It came out at the end of January.  The first MISSISSIPPI ARTS & CULTURE magazine came out at the end of December of 2016.  I will be putting out 4 comics each year and 8 issues of the magazine each year.  Every three months a comic and the two months between each will be the magazine.  AND IT’S FREE.  It’s a pdf that you can read online or download.  I sell ads to make it free but , hey, IT’S FREE.  Woo Hoo.

At the end of April the next comic will be coming out.  ZACK was 30 pages but I plan the rest of the comics to be around 100 to 150 pages.  Actual humor graphic novels.  Due to size restraints each book may be split into four parts BUT i will release them ALL at the SAME TIME.  No waiting.  You will get the full story all at once.  The next comic will be SPACE REDNECKS : THERE GOES THE GALAXY.

The magazine will have articles about artists and events in, around, and near Mississippi.  Also, I plan to start a ongoing serial comic strip starting in the March Issue.  It’s gonna be cool I tells ya.  Spread the word.  Tell your family, tell your friends, heck… tell your enemies too.  They may even like you more after you share this awesome news with them.  I will try to post here when I update but you can follow me at my ISSUU site and be alerted every time I put something up.

Get ready for some free comics and have a Bubbatastic Day.
