Hal-Con!

Just a quick post to let folks know I'll be appearing at Hal-Con this weekend here in lovely windblown Halifax! I'll be signing and selling (hopefully!) copies of SLAM-A-RAMA #1-4 and SCENESTER: THE INEVITABLE COLLECTED EDITION at the Strange Adventures table (look for us in the autograph area) from 3:00 to 4:00 PM on Saturday, November 12, AKA today. I'll also be appearing at a few panels/workshops--I'll be moderating the "How I Got Into Comics" panel this morning at 11:00 AM, and I'll also be appearing at the "Making Webcomics" workshop Sunday the 13th at 4:00 PM. See you there!

Bidness Cards!




Thanks once again to original SLAM-A-RAMA logo designer James White of Signalnoise Studios, we are now business card-equipped in time for Fan Expo! If your smartphone has a QR code reader app, you'll be able to scan the code on this bad boy and it'll take you right to this website. Futuristic! Thanks again to James, and thanks also to Calum of Strange Adventures for picking them up for me! And once again, if you're in the Toronto area this weekend, drop by the Hand Solo records booth to buy some comics! Or just say hello, either way.

Fan Expo! The Official Debut Of SLAM-A-RAMA #4!




Er, yeah, the title pretty much says it all. I'll be at the Hand Solo Records table this weekend at Fan Expo in Toronto, selling SCENESTER: THE INEVITABLE COLLECTED EDITION, SLAM-A-RAMA #1, 2, and 3, and officially debuting the just-printed #4! I'll be sharing table space with my pals Sean Jordan and Kody Peters, where we'll also be selling copies of the first two issues of SNAKOR'S PIZZA! So, if you're in the T-Dot this weekend, drop by and say hello!

Issue #4 Cover!

So #4 is off to the printer, and should be on sale at Strange Adventures by the end of the month, hopefully. In the next few days I'm going to try and get a PayPal option going on this site as well, if you'd like copies shipped to you. I can sell you issues through PayPal now--email me at davekhowlett@gmail.com for details if you're interested--but I would like to get a shopping cart and all that jazz installed right on the site. But, in the meantime, here's the cover to the fourth issue!



Also, it may be a week or two before more pages go up--my computer monitor has, for the last few months, been developing multicoloured vertical lines up and down its screen. Not enough to stop work, but just enough to be really annoying. I didn't want to get it looked at until the fourth issue was off to press (because I didn't want to delay the issue any more than it already was), but now I have no further excuse. So, when the next batch of pages (the final batch, I should say) start appearing, they'll either be coming from a repaired computer...or a new one, if it's a problem that can't be fixed (I'm really crossing my fingers for that first option).

Whew! And that constitutes the last page of what will make up the second-to-last issue. I'll be off the grid for hopefully not too long, getting SLAM-A-RAMA issue #4 ready for printing--I'm hoping to have physical copies ready for sale by the end of July. Back with more soon!

More Fan Art!



New page coming later this week, but in the meantime here's some Sasquatch Armstrong fan art from my pal Burnt Lobster--check out more of his work at his blog, but a word of warning--ages 18 and up, kiddies! Thanks, BL!

The delays between these pages are getting longer and longer, and I have no real excuse other than Homestretch Blues (there's only 34 pages left of this beast!). Well, that and a full time job and plenty of other commitments besides. However, I still plan on having this entire thing done before the year--hopefully, the summer--is out. Only one match left, folks--the main event! Plus lots of other backstage drama too. Thanks for sticking with me so far, and I hope we can all see it through to the end together!

Nearly two weeks since the last page?!?! Unacceptable! Bad enough I've only been turning out a page at week, at best, for most of 2011 so far. Truth to tell, I feel about as exhausted as these two guys look as I try to finish the pages that make up this fourth match. Thankfully, there's only one page of it left, then I'm hoping to regain my momentum in time to bring SLAM-A-RAMA to its (hopefully) rousing conclusion...in another 35 pages? Yeesh. Oh well, onward and upward!

Issue Three Update!

Hey folks, just a quick heads-up that the print edition of SLAM-A-RAMA #3 is at the printer as of this afternoon, and will hopefully be available to buy around the end of the month! I'm also hoping to resume posting new pages next Tuesday. My goal is to have #4 ready to print sometime this spring, and the fifth and final issue will, with any luck, be done this summer. Of course, I'll keep posting pages right here until the whole thing's finished. Thanks for reading, and tell your friends! Remember--new pages resume next week!

Issue Three Cover!



And we're back! Wow, after two weeks of Holiday laziness, it's really tough to get back into the groove, but at least the cover to the ever-imminent Issue Three is finished! I'm hoping to have this off to the printer by Monday, so then it'll be a matter of a couple of weeks. New pages are underway as well, so keep your eyes peeled.
