The brand new issue of Falling Rock has been assembled! The fixed covers arrived on Monday, and the rest of the week was dedicated to unstapling the bad covers and stapling the good ones. If you are a subscriber or have pre-ordered a copy, yours is in the mail.

Every Atticus & Glen comic strip, newly scanned, in order of publication.
Sadly, I was unable to find the original for the final Atticus & Glen comic strip. This is my best recreation, using cutting-edge technology (my lightbox). I did my best to follow the original lines, resisting the mighty urge to “improve” it.
It is a double-size feature, and stands as one of my favorite strips I’ve ever done. It’s not easy finding an ending to a comic. I wonder how much Bill Watterson struggled with the final Calvin & Hobbes strip. In my case, I wanted to show a future for the characters, since they would never really graduate from college, as well as sum up the philosophy I’d been refining for the past three years. This strip was, more than walking in commencement, turning in my final paper, or sitting for my last exam, my real graduation.
This weekend I’ll be at Emerald City ComicCon. I will have the brand new Falling Rock issue 5, the first all-Pam issue! Reid Psaltis will be sharing a table with me, and Tyrell Cannon will be right next door. Get all your indie comics and prints in one 15 square foot area. Here’s a handy map to find me among the lovely people living free.
This weekend I’ll be at WonderCon in beautiful Anaheim, California. If you’re not going to Disneyland this weekend, come see me! I will have the brand new Falling Rock #5, the first all-Pam issue! They moved everybody around this year, so here’s a handy map to find me among the Donald Duck impersonators.
