The tour is OVER!

It was long but it was fun and good to meet people! Thank you everyone who came out, and to the organizers and to Drawn and Quarterly. As usual, I got sick as soon as I came home, but at least it didn't pop up until the end of the tour, not so much during, though thank you to those understanding people in Toronto who were very gracious when I had to cut the line. I'll see you at TCAF I hope!

This comic was just a sketch in my book, I had intended to make a big ol' Halloween comic out of it, but since it's been so long since the last update and I'm not 100% yet, I thought I'd just open my sketchbook for you! I'm pretty worn out by comics you guys, I've spent a lot of time talking about and presenting my comics in the past couple of months to the point where I hardly want to look at 'em, but I'm excited to get back into it, back to normal, like. Nancy is up to her old tricks. Regular updates should be happening soon. I have some costume sketches too, when this comic was more ambitious:

Now here is an exciting thing:

The store has three new shirts! It's been a while. But here they are!

If you missed it, here are a few interview links:
Q with Jian Ghomeshi on CBC Radio
The Sound of Young America with Jesse Thorn on NPR

The book is still available for order on Amazon!

Other buying options for the book? Topatoco is selling it, along with a reissue of the first book! There is a pretty good combo deal there.
