I ran out to my local comic shop (Detroit Comics in Ferndale, MI) and snapped a photo of the trio all boxed up and sitting on the display table. Yay!!! It's very cool to have these guys out in time for Christmas. Word from Diamond is that the Lieam plush will follow 'in a few weeks'. I hope that can be out for Christmas as well. I can't explain how cool/surreal it is to walk into a shop and see figures of your creation...
I have not posted my full 2008 convention schedule yet, but I plan on nailing it down before the new year arrives. For now thought I wanted to highlight two that are coming up sooner than later and I wanted to get the info out.
-Mouse Guard Reading at the Flint Public Library.
The reading date has been moved again. I'm sorry
about any confusion this may cause, but the reading
is now set to take place Saturday January 5th at 2pm
Two of my close friends (of whom Lieam and Kenzie
are based) will be helping me read a selection of Fall
1152 aloud while the images of the book are projected.
The Flint Institue of the Arts (FIA) has offered to display
original Mouse Guard artwork and asked me to do a slide-
show presentation/Q&A and signing. The gallery opening
and presentation will be Saturday March 29th.
A UK Sci-Fi magazine called Death Ray did an interview with me and is now out on newsstands (Issue #8). Big thanks to Clair who did the interview and to Death Ray for the oppertunity to reach a UK audience!!
