Help "Kevin & Kell"
I come to you respectfully requesting your support to keep “Kevin & Kell” going for the next year. I know that 2020 has been challenging for everybody so I know it’s a big ask. In the case of the strip, all of our comic conventions were wisely cancelled. In each case it was the right call to keep all of us safe, but with no Anthrocon, San Diego ComicCon or Dragoncon, that led to a significant decrease in our revenue.
We’re launching the 2021 patron program, with the hope that “Kevin & Kell” can continue through the next year. I really appreciate your help; the strip wouldn’t be here without you.
Dethany is getting married this month, and she uses that event to impart some valuable words of workplace wisdom. It turns out that planning a wedding ceremony, even a virtual one, has much in common with office catastrophes.
New "Kevin & Kell" collection, "Mouse Mom"
The complete year of 2018 is now available in paperback here. It includes every strip, plus Lindesfarne's weekly commentary providing more detail on the storyline. As a personal note, this year I wasn't to debut the book at Anthrocon which has always been an important part of keeping the strip going, so I'm counting on sales through this outlet. Thanks!
Comic Con Virtual Panel
San Diego’s Comic Con was going to be the debut of our graphic novel “Dethany and the Other Clique.” Things changed, and instead of that the book will come out in the fall for holiday gift-giving. Meanwhile, Comic Con is posting video panels that you can access online, including ours.
Hermes Press has published a number of Goth-friendly books, and this video features us along with the wonderful creators of “The Lazy Goth” and “Stabby the Unicorn.” The moderator is Hermes publisher Dan Herman.
The video will be available this Friday at 3:00 PST.
NEW Fastrack and Safe Havens books
Normally this would be the month of preparing for Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, but sadly that won’t be the case for 2020. However, there are still Fastrack and Safe Havens collections that are now available, each containing the complete calendar year of material from 2016.
Safe Havens: Dave’s Gold
Fastrack: Dethany, The Office Goth
Publishers Weekly spotlight
Our upcoming graphic novel, “Dethany and the Other Clique,” is being previewed in Publishers Weekly! Visit the link and scroll down for our interview!
It will debut this summer from Hermes Press. It's now available for preorder here: https://hermes-press.myshopify.com/products/dethany-and-the-other-clique-pre-order
It features 12-year-old Dethany as she navigates middle school under an absurdly structured system of cliques. She and a group of misfits try to maintain their individuality.
The book is 114 pages long and is a collaboration between myself and my daughter. We're both tremendously proud of the result.
