It seems we’re powerless to stop tradition. It’s now been over a year since our first cookout back in ought seven. A lot of things have changed, perhaps the date being the most obvious of them.
We had record turnout, just the right amount of food and good times. Unfortunately, we were all too busy to bother taking any pictures for the album. My most sincere apologies.
I can only assure you that punitive measures have been taken and those responsible have been punished to the full extent of the law. That law being that wherever people get together and have a party, some jerk is gonna take out his flip phone and start taking pictures. And if he doesn’t, the host of the party is required to go out back and cut a “switch” which is to be longer than his arm but no wider at the base than his thumb. So, thank you to everyone who made it. Old friends and new acquaintances. You’re welcome back anytime.
And now that it’s officially October, it behooves us to pick a date for our next Indy Webcomics Group meetup. October 19th or 26th look promising. What do you all think? October 25th may also be a good date since that is when the Next Panel Alternative Comics Expo is happening, in Urbana Illinois. We might be able to make this a group day-trip and drive out together. In that case it would count as our regular meetup for this month and we’d resume meeting up as usual in November.
Also, don’t forget Mid-Ohio Con is this weekend. I’m sure a few of us are planning on going. Perhaps we will see you there? It may happen!
Just a last reminder about the cookout this Sunday, September 21st at the home of Lee Cherolis and Samantha Allen. All of you better come out. Friends are indeed welcome. If you need the address again, I’ll be sending an email to go with this post. As I said before, food will be provided unless you would like something other than burgers brats and dogs, in which case please bring it along, I will be happy to cook it for you. Sunday looks to be clear, sunny 78 degrees. Perfect for grilling out.
In other news, my partner in crime Mike Mann and I have secured table space at Baltimore Comic Con, which is less than two weeks away. You can read about our preparations for the convention at the Modsprocket blog. There, we detail our process of starting a new comic book from scratch and promoting that comic in the world of self-publishing. Expect new Wulflorne content leading up to and following the convention.
That’s all from me, see you all Sunday!
