Life’s crazy again.
Dork Tower #21, the Dork Tower Lord of the Rings Special and the third printing of Dork Shadows have all just gone to press.
Dork Tower #21 is what I’m calling the Nervous Breakdown Issue, mostly because life here’s been insane what with one thing and another these last six to eight weeks. It’s also the first Dork Tower that’s been late this year. Dork Tower #22 (“Heeere’s Carson”) should be hot on its heels, however, putting everything back on track.
In the meantime, I’m amazed that I managed to keep up the convention schedule, while producing two Dork Tower trade paperbacks, six Dork Tower comic books, two SnapDragons comic books, one Dork Tower special, and a ton of great games this year.
So I’ll probably be sleeping on the plane to London and this coming Saturday’s DRAGONMEET, the coolest one-day show I’ve ever been to!
Did I mention Dragonmeet was also home to DORKSTOCK UK? Yes, come and help me celebrate my 40th birthday with tons of Dorky events scheduled!
