I am SO happy to tell you that I’m taking NPC back to its original 3-day-a-week schedule. I buckled down during the 1-a-week days, wrote a buffer, and made a schedule for myself that I can keep up with. Thank you for being patient with me this past year. I started NPC while I was freelancing and had a lot of free time between gigs. I was very fortunate last year to start a full time job that I love, but it meant learning to juggle the comic with a consistent 50 hour-a-week job. I learned that I’m the kind of person that really needs to maintain a buffer, and when I do, NPCx3 is totally doable and a joy to make. Thank you for reading!
Happy 4th of July! I’m on a train to Massachusetts to spend the long weekend with my boyfriend’s family. Wifi in transit is one of those modern miracles, and I can already feel myself taking it for granted.
So do you know about Nerdtacular? It’s this cool fan event/convention put on by Scott Johnson of Frogpants, and it’s happening this weekend in Utah. Some of you may be going! And to you fortunate few, I’d like to say – there will be NPC Comic prints there! For buying! That’s what I’m told. I’d really appreciate if you could snap some pics of my prints at this cool event, and I’d REALLY appreciate it if you bought one or two.
Not going to Nerdtacular? It’s ok, I’m not either, so we can be sad together. But the good news is you can buy the prints, and even a shirt, on the SlashLoot site.
Also! There’s another New To You podcast up, and we talk about Magic The Gathering in it! We also have our first guest and talk about Jesus’s Son. It’s part one of our “Seminal Works” show. Listen here.
New to You Episodes: The Stars My Destination, The Gods Must Be Crazy, Beth Orton’s Central Reservation, Hey That’s My Fish
Just wanted to let you know that there are a couple more New To You episodes up! We talk about The Stars My Destination, The Gods Must be Crazy, and the Beth Orton album Central Reservation – you can listen to that one here.
For our second mini episode we talk about the ios version of the board game Hey, That’s My Fish. Listen here.
For our next episodes we’ll be talking about the movie Five Easy Pieces, the Dolly Parton album Little Sparrow, and the sci novel Falling Free.
I’m doing a podcast with my boyfriend John and our buddy Keith! It’s called New to You Show, and we talk about movies, musics, books – and probably about games eventually.
The idea is to recommend something to each other that is new to them, and hopefully it’ll be new to you too. We have one full episode and a bonus in the can, and we recorded another last night that’ll be out next week. If you want to hear us talk about Unico, Ender’s Game, Sandy Denny, and RadioLab, you can listen here.
Here’s the iTunes link!
Some of you may remember that I offered prints of the comic for sale a year or so ago. And many of you ordered them – thank you! I had to stop offering them due to ink costs and my own schedule. So now I’m so happy that Slash Loot can bring you NPC Comic prints again!
You can now buy prints of the strips TableTop Gaming and Raptor Captor. If there’s a comic you’d especially like to buy, let me know. If there’s enough demand, I can make it available on Slash Loot.
And don’t forget – there’s also a t-shirt!
