San Diego Comic-Con is over, friends! I plan to spend my day making the trek back home, and then sleeping. Precious, precious sleeping. So let's leave the full con report until Wednesday!

The greatest story never told
I admit it! I drew today's filler-y comic largely to give myself a bit of a break during the mad rush of San Diego Comic-Con prep. (And also to unleash the greatest travesty possible.) Looking back on it, I'm kind of glad I did! It was actually a real struggle to draw anatomy that poorly... I probably should have pushed it even further, but my brain kept trying to correct it. Just one more reason to be jealous of the endless talents of Kate, Mer and Carly, I suppose. (Like I need another one!)
Comic-Con is in full tilt, now. If you're at the show, come by the Topatoco booth! They've got the new book, the tanuki t-shirt, and a whole ton of other sweet swag both Sam and Fuzzy-related and otherwise. And of course, I'm there too... drawing stuff and generally causing problems. Come say hi!
(And yes, worry not... if you can't make it to the show, our new stuff is also available online, in the Sam and Fuzzy Topatoco Store! You can even get a signed copy of the book with a sketch inside, thanks to the magic of swanky bookplate technology.)
Three more days of Comic-Con insanity! Will I survive? Find out on Monday!

San Diego Comic-Con
It starts! San Diego Comic-Con madness kicks off at Preview Night tonight. Are you going to be there? Come visit us at the Topatoco booth! (You can click the image to see it on a map.)
Topatoco will be peddling both the new book, and the tanuki t-shirt, plus a variety of other Sam and Fuzzy swag. And you'll also find me there, hiding from the crowd, doing sketches and commissions, and possibly destroying Ryan North at New Super Mario Bros. It will be the best, friend.
But if you can't come to the show... worry not! Our new stuff is also available online, in the Sam and Fuzzy Topatoco Store! As I mentioned on Monday, you can even simulate the convention experience and get a signed copy of the book with a sketch inside, thanks to the magic of swanky bookplate technology. Here's just a few of the ones I've drawn so far. (All carefully using ideas and characters I didn't use for the Volume One plates, so no one will winds up with two drawings of the same thing!)
Anyhow, I'd best go mentally prepare myself for the madness that is SDCC. See you there, con-goers!
