So What if Cats Hate Comic Book Conventions?

What do cats know anyway? They don't even read comics. Oh, sure, sometimes they'll try to sit on one while I'm reading it, but does that give them any room to criticize? I don't think so. And that minor detail about comics paying for most of their fancy prescription cat food? They seem to feel that they are entitled to that.

Even so, I expected a modicum of enthusiasm when I told them that Gabriel and I would be holding down a booth in Artists Alley at the Long Beach Comic Con this weekend. And what do I get? Bored stares and looks of annoyance.

So I've decided not to even invite the cats. But I am inviting all of you out there in blog-reading land. If you happen to be in Long Beach this weekend, October 2, 3, and 4th, please check out the Long Beach Comic Con. And if you do, be sure to stop by booth 74A.

We'll have copies of our original graphic novel Heathentown available for purchase and will be happy to sign it for you. And Gabriel will be doing sketches for $30. Plus, we promise not to yawn in your face, unlike some cats I know.

Hope to see you there!


  1. Ha ha! Cats are all about themselves, you seem surprised! What a great blog post!

  2. Hey Froggie! I wish I could go..but I am way to far away. Good Luck =) Love your comic book!!!

  3. Man, I found a strand of beads in my sneaker this morning. They do not appreciate jewelry or jewelry making either. Ungrateful cats.

  4. You gave me a good laugh! Love your cat photos, they look so enthused. Have fun at the convention and if I happen to wander down that way I will come by, although being that I'm in Canada, I'm not so sure I'll get there.



  5. The cats are missing out! Unfortunately, I will be missing out, too, seeing as I live in Australia =/ I would love to be there right now though, because my 3 best friends live in LA - their band actually just had a gig in Long Beach! Have a great time at the convention!

  6. Tee hee - get them some "Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers" comics; there is a separate strip running along the bottoms of the pages featuring Fat Freddy's cat. I'm sure they'd get a kick out of it!

  7. Lonesome, that's a great idea! Pink, I'm so glad you liked Heathentown! :)
    Thanks everyone! I wish you could all be there!

  8. Those darn cats! Have a fun time! :)
