Webcomic News Roundup: Japanese Bikers and More
Ugly Hill‘s Paul Southworth kicked off his comic-within-a-comic SasqWatch 2813 this week, and as Gary Tyrrell points out over at Fleen, this sort of storyline/plot point has spawned a successful spin-off or two in the past. Now’s your chance to read it before it got too big for its own good.
If you’re hanging around the Beverly Hills area this weekend (and really, who isn’t doing that these days), Sheldon creator Dave Kellett will be holding court at a local lounge in honor of the release of his latest print collection, Pugs: God’s Little Weirdos. The book will feature a collection of pug-themed strips from Kellett’s popular webcomic, and the event kicks off at 7 PM on August 10. But wait, there’s more!
I’ll be putting free, personalized sketches in pug books all night long…and handin’ out high-fives at near rock-bottom prices. This is the night for such things, my friends.
And because this book is so specifically themed around pugs, we’re giving 10% of all the night’s sales to the LA Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. They’ll be on-hand that night, so feel free to give them a high-five as well — they deserve it.
