RASL 2: The Fire of St. George ships to comic book stores today, and I’m packing my bags for C2E2 this weekend. The staff at Cartoon Books is on the way over to the house to have a final scheduling meeting. It’s exciting! I haven’t been to a comic convention in Chicago in 10 years, and I can’t wait to see everyone at the show! On Saturday, I have a spotlight panel at 1:45 in room E353. Should be fun, it will include a reading as well as a look at some of the new BONE: Tall Tales stories. Then I run over to room # E271A to introduce the BONE documentary The Cartoonist at 3:00. After that, I’ll be at the Cartoon Books booth (#550) for most of the rest of the day. I’m on an Indie comics panel on Sunday at 1:15 in room #E450. Stop by! We have some fun new things at this show, including a special BONE pin, and the new RASL book collection hot off the press, The Fire of St. George (we’ll also have the first book, RASL: The Drift, of course)!
Speaking of RASL, the parallel universe science I based it on is cutting edge, but I was surprised that there was a new study released that seems to prove the existance of parallel universes!
From the news article: “The strange discovery by quantum physicists at the University of California Santa Barbara means that an object you can see in front of you may exist simultaneously in a parallel universe…”
We posted a different study last week that ran on National Geographic’s site suggesting the same thing:
“…researchers made the controversial suggestion that the clusters are being tugged on by the gravity of matter outside the known universe. —which in turn hints that our universe is part of something larger: a multiverse.”
Crazy! You read it here first!
Update 4/15/10: The Chicago Tribune is running a profile/Q&A with me as part of its coverage of the C2E2 convention.
Come by the booth this weekend, say hi, and get your RASL on!
