The news that no one reads

I'm going to tell you a bunch of things right now. A bunch of new things you may not know. You're going to read them, and then you'll know them. And then you'll read them again in one of next week's news posts because there are about five thousand of you that still aren't aware that I update on Saturdays now.

Many of you have ordered posters, and I will be shipping those as soon as possible. I have a very large number of carboard tubes in transit to my house via UPS, so that I can ship them to you wrapped in a protective blanket of security and non-wrinkliness. What can Brown do for me? Hurry the fuck up.

I am very pleased to announce that I am about three pages into the first ever Ctrl+Alt+Del comic book. Yes, you heard me correctly. A full length, traditional style comic book. Dynamic paneling, cool angles and 24 pages of pure original CAD story. I'll be posting more about it as I feel like revealing more about it.

I am happily playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic thanks to your suggestions. I must say... this game is incredible, and lives up to all of my expectations. If you're playing this game right now, you know what I'm talking about. I played until the wee hours of the morning, to the point where my eyes were burning, and I was screaming out loud "Shut up, eyes! I just got more credits and I want to go buy something!".

The game is a wet dream come true. Not my wet dream... that would just be wierd. But I'm sure it's somebody's.. and we can only feel pity for that somebody.

It's everything Star Wars Galaxies wasn't. My only complaint is the customization of your character's appearance. They could have/should have added more faces, at least, but it's a minor grievance.

Yes, Ctrl+Alt+Del will be at Otakon 2003 in Baltimore, Maryland, August 8th, 9th and 10th. If you're in the area, come on by. I'll have a table there, and will be selling posters, signed prints, original artwork, and generally just socializing. I may also have a limited edition, 100 print poster made just for the sale at Otakon. I'm still toying with that idea.

This is a huge convention, and another great step for the comic. I had a blast at ConnectiCon, and I really enjoyed meeting some of you, which is what spurred me into last minute preparations for Otakon. Hope to see some of you there.
