Update #22


Hello everyone!

First, almost all the posters have shipped!  If you don't have yours yet, give it just a little more time!

Second, It was announced last week that Cursed Pirate Girl was picked up as a title by major international publisher Archaia!  That's huge news, and it means that your hand-stamped books are already collector's items!!!  :)

Third, for those of you with one foot in the last century, I'm doing a TEDx talk on 11.11.11, and hope to bridge the gap between 1901 and 2001 with my presentation.  We'll see how it goes!

Jeremy is hard at work at Volume 2 of CPG, and the art looks FABULOUS.  Thanks so so so much for all your support getting this far!

Booth 2845 at SDCC


Oops!  That would be #2845!  Thanks, Bob!  ;)

Update #20

Cursed Pirate Girl posters, update!

Rolling and tubing nearly 900 posters took so much longer than we had thought, we even had to bring in outside help!  We DID get everything tubed, labelled, and taped, literally the day that the truck needed to be packed and driven away for San Diego Comic Con.  So the good news is that after weeeeeeeeeks of preparing the posters, they are ready to go as soon as we get back!  We'll be taking them in groups though, 900 poster tubes is an entire cargo van load of posters and we have to hand them over the counter one by one so it's a few days at the Post Office.  :)

If you're at San Diego Comic Con, come check out our booth, #2945, and say "Hi" to Jeremy in person, he'll be signing all weekend!

Thanks again so much, and follow Jeremy and I on Facebook for updates on happenings throughout the comic book convention!

    SIGNING EVENT. Nothing says piracy like indentured servitude! Have Jeremy Bastian for a day, swabbing the decks, cleaning windows (he's REALLY tall!), or if you want, simply have him sign books at your event and tell stories of the Omerta seas. This pledge includes 100 copies of the book, and Jeremy will bring all that great hand-made stuff that you can only buy from him at his rare convention appearances. You must cover transport, feeding, and if necessary, housing this poor lad for the trip. He does have a really large moustache, but is in fact very friendly. (Not like those nasty pirates at all.)
