Catch me at ALA Annual in San Diego

This weekend in San Diego I'm tabling at the Zine Pavilion in the 2024 American Library Association Annual Conference. I'm exhibiting alongside Rosie, James, and Mark as CBC (Comics Brain Club). It looks like I'll be behind the table for all four days of the convention and everyone else in the crew else will be popping in for a day or two.

If you're going to ALA, swing by and say hi. I'll have lots of new printings of my classic zines and comics, plus new stuff as well as free zines too.

It was an honor to be a guest at Godzilla vs. Music Box, a film festival that was a massive gathering of fantastic G-Fans in the Windy City. I flew out to Chicago with the legend Rosie Knight, where we met up with the amazing Oliver Ono and his super cool partner, Chadwick.

We were thrilled to share previews of Godzilla: Monster Island Summer Camp with filmgoers and exhibit our other comics and zines. We also held a zine making workshop for families, which went super well. Big thanks to Katie, Kyle, Kiyan, and the rest of the Music Box staff, who were all terrific.

I also got to meet up with my Transformers: Beast Wars collaborator, Andy Bell, and my Godzilla Rivals collaborator, Sean Dove. I've been working with a lot of Chicagoans lately! It was wonderful to see them both and talk shop.
