Unshelved comic strip for 7/30/2007

Return from the Planet of the Nerds

We returned from San Diego late last night (actually early this morning). It was a great show, really fun and easy. We talked to gazillions of great people and sold a record amount of stuff. We were gratified to see hardcore fans and new readers alike picking up our new book Read Responsibly in droves (Last reminder: if you haven't preordered your copy yet you can still do so by tomorrow (Tuesday) night and still get an autographed and sketched-up copy.) I have more to say about the Con but I'll wait until I have a chance to catch my breath and post Sunday's and Monday's strips, which will happen shortly.


I drew this week's sequence at our booth at Comic Con over the course of several days. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of people stopped to watch and many took the time to read the strips. I really enjoyed taking the time to get the strips right, and doing my finished art in pencils instead of on the computer was refreshing (although having to erase and redraw the lettering dozens of times was completely tedious). It looked so good we decided to post them this way.
