Volume 4 has not long come out in paperback but am going to wait till I got to Leeds Comic Con in November to buy that. :)


Say hi to Kristyna Baczynski for me!

Punchy said he would last year but talking to women was not on his list of things to do that day.

Duh Studge in Real Rap #1&2 by Ben Urkowitz. Quirky funny minicomics about Duh Studge, a guy who lives in a small apartment with one cat he thinks is two different cats who decides to save music by downloading some beats from illestbeatz.com and becoming a rapper. Pretty talented young writer/comic strip artist, wonder what he could do with a lengthy graphic novel?

These retail at $1 and give you more for that dollar than a lot of more expensive comics do. I would give these to Keb if I could.

I googled but others might not be as smart as me.

edit: I might go look for this tomorrow. The shop I go to carries some mini-comics so they might have this.

I have managed to avoid that party every year due to prior commitments, but I'm coming up empty for 2013.

I get them from a distributor, but here is Ben Urkowitz's TUMBLR site is that what you mean?

If you can't find them let me know, maybe I can mail you a set as they don't weigh much at all.

It was :D

The lads I went with were lame and wanted to go home quite early on in the Night, so didn't get to mix with many of them :( I didn't want to stay out on my own, not knowing anyone.

Hoping they won't do the same this Year.

I would have stayed on my own. I want to go to NYCC next year, it'll be my first convention ever.

Yeah, I was close to staying by myself but a young girl alone in the City on a Saturday night is a tad risky.

NYCC would be a great one to go to as your first. I'd love to go to a Comic Con in America at some point. Majorly jealous. 8)

San Diego Diary by Gabrielle Bell. She writes mostly autobiographical stories, this was the story of a trip to Comic Con and the kind of absurd situations she and her friend found themselves in. Some parts were really funny.
