Back from Gen Con!
Back from Gen Con!

Hey everyone!

Doing two major cons within weeks of each other sort of took my buffer and dropped it into negative hit points, if you know what I mean. So, here is another (hopefully amusing!) con strip that sort of encapsulates the strange, wonderful con that is Gen Con!! Thanks to everyone who came out and said hi to me there – I think you’ll agree that there’s no convention quite like Gen Con. So much gaming. So many geeks… So much awesome!!

And never fear – the current storyline WILL resume on Monday! See you all then!

(Also, if you are wondering wtf is up with the last panel, then you must read THIS epic tale… It is not to be missed!!!)

    It was great getting to see you at Gen Con. I’m sorry I didn’t come back. It turned out to be the only time I was able to leave the gaming area over in the train station.

    I am serious about wanting to give you a comp copy of the rpg I write. From your strip, I think you would like it. If you can see my email from where you are, use it to contact me and I’ll send you a pdf. If you can’t, I’ll try to think of another way.

    Oh, and I’m also sorry for geeking out at your booth. 🙂

    Aw, I’m sort of disappointed that I didn’t read that you were there, especially since I was only like 5 rows to your left (and a few stalls down) at the Sandstorm booth.

    Oh well, I’ll just have to stop by next year.

    quick comment on your latest comic – you messed up the Portal song. It’s actually “I’m making a note here – HUGE SUCCESS!”

    just thought you might like to know 8D
