I LOVE the third panel...

Did I mention that these are dated WHEN I drew the line art, not when they become public online?

I've been working on the first Trade of SuperMilo. It was to be 50 pages, but I am creating a special, never before seen, only available in print and not online, prologue chapter for the comic strip. It's an incentive to buy the book. It will be 14 pages long, pushing the trade up to at least 64 pages. I may add or take away from that page total later. The book is otherwise ready. Just need to finish the back cover and the new prologue. The prologue is an excellent introduction for new readers, so it will also be offered at cons, probably in black and white to make it more affordable, in its own separate book, including a sketch cover as an extra incentive.

As far as the space worm chapter above goes, it will be sometime before it is offered in color. BUT ... as I have completed all of the drawings, I will be offering the black and whites in a book for sale in print online and at cons. This way, for all of you who can't wait to read the rest of the story (it should finish in ... August?), you don't have to! And because it will be offered in black and white, it means it will be very affordable. I may even split the story up into two halves - the half you'll already have seen in the next few pages, plus the half you haven't. That way you can only order the half you wish to read. The colored version will be in one trade, of course. The space worm B&W books will come with a sketch cover as an extra bonus if you meet me at a con and want me to make a custom cover.

The con list is as follows:
January 18 - The Wilkes Mini Con was great! It has already passed.

March 15 - Tommy and I have already appeared at Jay and Eddie's Comic Show. We had a good time.

April 5th - Tommy and I will appear at LexCon this day! Special honored guest is Marcus Hamilton, cartoonist for Dennis the Menace, and I hear the con will help raise money for charity. Takes place in Lexington, NC.

April 26 - Tommy and I will appear at the Winston Salem Comic Con! Takes place in Winston-Salem, NC at a hotel off of University Parkway. Please visit their facebook page or call Burke Street Comics on 4th street in Winston-Salem for more info.

I set these comics on an auto updating schedule, so I don't know if you all have read the author's note yet in which I excitedly told everyone I was going to be a father. My wife and I sadly lost the baby this week. I just felt I should tell my readers since I shared with you all my initial joy and excitement...
