In addition to singing Life with Mr. Dangerous (and whatever else comes across the table), Comic-Con also marks the debut of the So-So Heroes Postcards from Chronicle. I've had a copy of the collection since... April?... so it'll be nice to see it released into the wild. Stop by Chronicle on Friday from 1 to 2 pm and I'll scrawl things all over a copy, just for you.

Principal Purchase

My framed original art from Crazy 4 Cult 5, the Ferris Bueller nod "The Spoils of War," has a direct link now. So for those that didn't happen to be in L.A. at the opening, you can have at it here.

Paris and Wookies

I was recently interviewed by The Paris Review about Life with Mr. Dangerous, which I'll be taking – along with myself and a healthy dose of Hobbit body spray – to Comic-Con this week.

I'm signing at a few tables this year, so please make note of the below migratory pattern. If you're around the convention, work your way through the entire cast of Star Trek Deep Space Nine and say hello.

Here's where I'll be when I'm not outside recovering:

Fantagraphics (Booth 1718), 5 to 6pm

Chronicle Books (Booth 1506), 1 to 2pm
Fantagraphics, 3 to 4pm

Fantagraphics, 2 to 4pm
Random House (Booth 1515), 5 to 5:30pm

Even if you've watched it, it's worth another go... My friend John Huston and me at Comic-Con 2009:

Go Outside

Go Outside, by Cults from Boing Boing on Vimeo.

This is a solid way to start the week: a song I've been loving for a while set to an incredible video.

Attention aspiring (and established) video directors, if you MUST show the band performing or singing, can you please at least make it this entertaining and inventive? (video via Boing Boing)

They've Been In My Pocket... They're Real Warm and Soft

Tonight at Gallery 1988, Crazy 4 Cult 5 opens. My above contribution (grandiosely titled "The Spoils of War") will be somewhere on the school bus. I can't make it to the opening, but if you're in the Los Angeles area, stop by and check out all the homage (and damage) paid to a wide variety of films.

No, no, no... Where's The Horizon?

Whether or not you're looking forward to Cowboys and Aliens (I am, though I worry it won't live up to the insane scenarios I've painted in my head (often the case with films where I've only seen the trailer)), this is a great story of two generations meeting: John Ford schooling a young Steven Spielberg.
