Stumptown report, and audio of a panel discussion

On April 23, 2011 · 6 Comments

Stumptown went great! I sold all 60 copies of Hereville I had with me, chatted with many readers and cartoonists, and just generally had a swell time.

From The Beat, here’s a photo of me at my booth at Stumptown.

Thanks to Jen Vaughn, who took that photo and is also an excellent cartoonist with a series of comics about menstruation.

I also had the good fortune to be on a panel about world-building, moderated by Evan Dahm; the other panelists were Carla Speed McNeil, Jenn Manley Lee, Kel McDonald, and Larry Marder. So that was pretty awesome.

Happily, Evan made an audio recording of the panel, which you can listen to here.

    Yo dude, did I miss the official press release announcing that Mirka has been signed for two more seasons? I know you’re busy and all, but honestly, people will be psyched to hear this news — even people who don’t Tweet. I know I was.

      I’m glad you were psyched!

      There hasn’t been an official press release yet, but we’ve signed the contracts and Abrams has said I can tell people. I’m not sure what the official press release is waiting on, but they know the book-publishing business and I don’t. Perhaps they’re waiting until they set a firm release date?

      But yeah, I should at least post about it, I guess.

  3. Glad I got to meet you at Stumptown! I loved the book and am tickled to hear there’s going to be more of the story in the future. It seemed like the perfect set-up for a big, awesome series. Congrats!
