@#$%**!! YAH!!!


Great news ya'll! Today, (After 6 years of work,) I sent the files to be printed for my first graphic novel, "Seaweed and A Cure for Mildew"! To celebrate I'm posting a compilation of all the cartoon curse words that appear in the book. The book is going to be HUGE!! I'm talking 12" x 15", full - color, hard cover with a cloth spine. It's got 40 pages of story and 24 pages of sketches, designs and development all printed on insanely heavy paper stock! I've gotten a tremendous amount questions about the release date for the book so it's awesome that I can finally respond with an answer. The books should all be printed and in my hands by this June! I'll have info posted as soon as a hard date is available and info on how you can buy one. In the mean time I hope you have fun reading these words out loud!

Something tells me that this'll be selling quickly. I hope there will be enough for everyone ;)
This is such great news, and makes my eventual summer reading of Seaweed and Charlatan's Ball a more exciting summer!

Excellent swear words!
My cartoons on my blog have a lot of swearing in them but I recently (17th march) switched to using wingdings style swear words
I think they look angrier than the real word.

It sounds like it's going to be a great book.
Well out of my price range.

Thank you all so much!

Eric - It's great to hear from you! I've been thrilled to see all your comic book success with My Dead Girlfriend and the OC and the Eisner Award, and I could keep going! Way to go buddy!!!

Randall and El Grande - I'm looking into my options for the comic con. Booths and Tables are sold out at the moment but I may try and work out a deal to have someone carry the book. I'll keep everyone posted.

Cosmic Pencil - I think there will be plenty. I'm hoping I don't have to build a new wing to the house with the extras!! Charlatan's Ball is on my read list as well!! It looks great!
