Le Salon de Livre de l'Outaouais: Rendez-vous International de la BD de Gatineau


so i've been invited to (deep breath) Le Salon de Livre de l'Outaouais: Rendez-vous International de la BD de Gatineau, (this thursday to sunday).

as the name might suggest, to those of you who both speak frenchy-talk and managed to get through the title, it's an international festival of comics and bandes desinees. the organizers have other guests coming in from france, belgium, switzerland, and now, with the invitation of yours truly, from across the river... (of course they offered to pay for hotel and airfair, but i told them i'd be satisfied with parking.)

i probably should have mentioned all of this earlier on, but i've been busy, what with work, baby, and incapacitating illness (read: cold).

i've been invited to participate on the strength of my MAD work (although they did mention something called "caper: beware the hand of doom!" in my bio on the site), but really i'm looking forward to a very different "con" experience. i'll be available for autograph sessions all four days as well as a few special events. so if you're one of the three people reading this in the ottawa/gatineau area and you're willing to brave my contagion, swing on by.

oh! and it's free!


yeah, thought that'd getcha. cheap bastards...

Free?! Coolz! I'll try to drag the hermit along. If you know of anyone who wants to visit, and would like a lift, let me know.

You sick bastard!

(Cough!)

Yeah, I've been ill for a month now. Sucks huh?

Damn you, don't you read your emails? Lol, emailed you a while ago, but it must have fallen into the SPAM pile.

Anyhoo, congrats on being a dad and Mo on being a new mommy. Your army begins.

(Cough)

Okay, back to bed and scripting 'till my other lung falls out.

Have fun at the con.
