I wanted today to be all about celebrating the imepending release of the books, but I swear to monkey fucking christ if this guy ever approaches me about the "bold new boundary-breaking landscape of webcomics" and all that bullshit, I will shove his stupid ass down the nearest storm drain.

Why is it always the people who don't have a webcomic, or have some shit webcomic that NO ONE has ever heard of, that want to be the experts and the documentarians about how "revolutionary" web comics are. Web comics are fun. Why do they have to be analyzed to shit-paste?

You know what? Brian Carroll and I have been filming a CAD documentary for the past year, at conventions. I can gaurantee you that not once will you hear some stupid bullshit about "the vision". What you will see is me drunk as hell, falling into a hotel bathtub and breaking off the porcelain soap dish with my shoulder in the process. And probably some Q&A thrown in between all the partying. It's about having fun, telling stories, making people laugh.

Fuck the "experts" and their boring exploration of a "bold new medium". Webcomics rock. Get over it.
