Only one glaring error in the book titles! I’m quickly learning that every article ever will have an error, or make you look like a douchebag, or both.
I always feel slightly awkward talking about the Jesus comic, like I should apologise for it or try to justify it and explain it. But man, it’s just silly fun funs, people will either hate it or not and there’s no winning people over.
Some people at Supanova got offended just looking at the cover. Others told me they were Christian, but they had a sense of humour about it and we had a nice chat. I like that everyone’s generally ok with excessive Jesus violence and killing, but the tender sex scene between two men is ‘too far’.
Absolutely wrecked after a huge weekend of Supanova (and a very croaky and tired gig with my band at the Toff). I got quite a few of my comics into new hands, and had some return customers from last year, which was extra great. The new Zombolette Floppy was ready in time and it went down pretty well.
I didn’t have heaps of time to see talks or guests, but I had a browse around the stalls and met some very inspiring artists.
Preparing for the event was pretty hectic and stressful, and I was thinking I wouldn’t be up for another convention this year, but now it’s all done and dusted I want more…
Zombolette’s Floppy #1 is finally at the printers! Very soon she’ll be in your disgusting, meaty paws. I can’t wait. Now I just want to get stuck into issue #2!
By the by, I’ve been using Jeffries Printing Services in Sydney for all my self-publishing efforts, and couldn’t recommend them more highly.
I’ve spent the last few weeks finishing off a new Zombolette floppy, learning how to watercolour, and organising this launch:
In case you didn’t read the poster (you sausage), we’re launching 6 new comics!
