I had a lovely birthday, thank you for the well wishes. Very quiet. Saw some friends. Weย went out for a milkshake. Good times.

I’ve been enjoying Drive by Dave Kellett a lot lately. Maybe I just like galactic councils, maybe I like long stories that feel epic, I don’t know. But recently he put together a website independent of Sheldon and the strip really feels like it’s been gelling. Go, Dave! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to those who braved the unpleasant weather last week for the Spacetrawler book release, it was excellent to meet you who made it, and to meet the good folk at AFK Tavern who treated my girlfriend and I awesomely, including making us Limbic Fizzlers! Sweet.

Hard on the heels of that, this coming weekend is the Seattle Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle. Come. Find me at the Topatoco Island. I will have books!

(Or simply buy a book online)

    @Joal, YES! Ah, poor Australians. I love every one of you I’ve ever met and simultaneously laugh and feel a twinge of guilt for every joke Dusty forces me to make at your expense. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. “it’s” instead of “its”. How did I not notice that?

    And yes, everybody lives off beer. Those who don’t drink it, sell it; and those who don’t drink it or sell it, use it to manipulate others. It’s quite useful that way.

    It would be interesting to get Pierrot’s reaction to this statement (variously attributed to George Orwell and Winston Churchill):

    “We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

    @CompanionHill, I was indeed just being silly, but let me say that I actually really appreciate editorial feedback on the strip. I know the difference between its and it’s, but too often with the long-long-long editing process, it slips back in there incorrectly. Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
