Hey, who’s going to NYCC 2009?

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Let me know right away. Especially if you’re still working on your hotel plans. Or if you aren’t but you have room to share with one more. Because it’s not too early to plan…

But I also wanna know if you’re going to be there whether you want to discuss hotel plans or not. So let me know.

Email me, or else contact me via this site’s CONTACT US page.

New articles up in the writing section of this site… An old article by Barb about the way people look at fans, and another amusing column from Comics Bulletin which we both worked on, about cliches… this one more of an equal effort from us both than previous ones that were almost all her.

Over at MangaLife, I wrote a new article about a manga from Viz which I’m fairly pleased with… Barb helped me with it a little here and there:

New articles up in the writing section of this site… A nice article by Barb from our CB column, and an amusingly accurate column from me, too, from the same site…

I also did a couple of reviews today over at MangaLife, but even more special is a shout-out we got from Okazu (http://okazu.blogspot.com/), *The* Yuri blog… Okazu is the oldest and most comprehensive blog for Yuri (in which girls like girls) anime and manga reviews, information and events of interest to yuri and shoujoai fans, created by Erica Friedman, founder of Yuricon (http://www.yuricon.org/)…

Anyway: “Yuri Webcomics: Webcomic fans should head over to Wicker Man Studios and take a look at Gun Street Girl, an interesting fusion of lesbians, violence and magic. Three great tastes that go great together. lol I’ve liked what I read so far.”

Thanks for the shout-out!

I’d also like to remind our passengers that we have a spare free story by me and Ryan. If you haven’t read it yet, go read it:
