Bethesda or BUST!

Thu 9/8/2011

Well, my comics are printed and my bags are packed, so I guess I'm ready for SPX which is this weekend in Bethesda, Maryland.

I'll be tabling with Greg Means of the inimitable Tugboat Press all weekend. He will have Papercutter #17 hot off the press as well as many back issues and other awesome wares, including the free DRAGONS! comic for kids. I will have Phase 7 #016, the first four chapters of Basewood, my Phase 7 collections and Drop Target Zine #1, #2 and the brand new #3. We will be at table H15 / H16. If you are in the area, please swing by and say hello!

I will also be co-teaching a comics workshop on Saturday at 4pm in the White Flint amphitheater with Robyn Chapman of CCS and Tom Hart of SAW. We're going to drop some self-publishing knowledge and then everyone is going to make comics. It should be fun!

Usually I take the train down to D.C. but the recent flooding has done so much damage to Vermont that no trains are running in the state right now. So instead I'm going to take a bus to Springfield, then a train to D.C. and then the Metro out to Bethesda. I'll make it there eventually! It'll feel good to get out of town for a few days, and to see a bunch of my favorite comics homies. Oh, it'll also be great to get a whole bunch of awesome COMICS! ;)

Hi Alec,
I'm one of those many you talked to at SPX--from Burlington. I enjoyed your newest Phase 7 very much. I'm a Libra too, with that special indecisive Libra kind of understanding! And also I'm from Portland, so that's familiar. And appreciate how often you show yourself crying. I'm looking forward to your next project.
