The French, They are a Funny Race…
Lord know there’s a lot of miserable news going on lately, so I was pleased on behalf of acquaintances of ours, who produce the charming little catcentric webcomic Two Lumps (http://twolumps.net/), which is Experiment # 2’s favorite webcomic, by the way (not to be bitter or anything), when I discovered that they had scored a TV deal with the French. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIePsbJSS04) In retrospect, I’ll admit that I always assumed that Snooch sounded a lot like Jerry Lewis, so it all makes sense. Bon chance, mes amis!
As I mentioned before, we will be at Seattle’s own Emerald City Comicon this weekend. If you were unaware that this exciting comics extravaganza was happening, too bad, because apparently all the tickets have been sold out. But fear not! You can still contribute to Studio Foglio by purchasing our books from TopatoCo (http://www.topatoco.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=TO&Category_Code=GEN), which carries fine books, shirts and tchotchkes from the webcomics elite without you having to actually look at genuine webcomic artists, which I’m told, is well worth the price of postage alone.
Personally, I find this a base canard. We threw a party for out–of–town webcomic people here last night, and I can declare with a straight face (and some surprise) that at the end of the night, we still had liquor left. I will concede that, aside from Kaja and myself, there weren’t any science–fiction authors, but I was still astounded that the creative people of today are such lightweights.
MEDIEVAL NERD ALERT; As you can see, if you check out our new aggregate site (https://girlgeniusadventures.com/), we have actually put together a city coat–of–arms for the city of Mechanicsburg. We are looking for a Heraldry person to properly describe it. (If you’re the kind of person we’re looking for, you know what we’re talking about). We’re not talking money here, but for the best description, everlasting glory, your name in print, and possibly a shirt or mug with said coat of arms when we get our merch together.
