S.P.A.C.E., Week 12 of Snarky, and Head Shaving

Space... the final frontier.

S.P.A.C.E. as in the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo. Though not the final frontier it's always a great event. This year was no exception.

It's great to be at an event where the crowd focuses on the comics themselves. This is a rare occurence in the days where most Comic Conventions are geared towards an entertainment event. It was great getting to see a lot of new faces and getting a chance to catch up with some old friends/compatriots. This year Ryan Claytor, Jon Gordon, and I went out with Max Ink & Co. to get a chance to really experience Columbus. We had a great meal at The Red Door Tavern and were introduced to the amzing Columbus institution of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. Of the latter I can only drool when I think about that wonderful experience. If you are ever in Columbus be sure to stop and check them out, you will not be displeased.

Aside from getting a good piece of Columbus culture I had the opportunity to pick up some new books. I plan on doing some reviews over the next few weeks of many titles that I picked up so keep your eyes open.

Well on to the next item, week 12 of "24 Weeks of Sequentials". This marks the halfway point for the first issue of The Tao of Snarky: The Cutting Edge. I really enjoy playing around on the planet Rex 9 and emmersing myself into the world. The creatures and characters have started to take on a life of there own. So we return to the Den where Sgt Sahara is having some issues.

Last but not least for this post...

Lissa, her son Maksen, his father Jon and I are shaving our heads for the St Baldrick's Foundation. We're doing this and taking donations for pediatric cancer research. This is for a great cause and if you could take a moment to donate what you are able to it would be greatly appreciated. You can donate by clicking the image below or clicking here.

Having all four of us shaving our heads I wanted to do a Beatle's tribute group photo to help represent the team which we named Let It Be Shaved. So enjoy and remember you can click on the image if you'd like to find out more about what we're doing or to donate to a great cause.

Yes, Lissa is actually shaving her head for this event. This is a great show of solidarity for children who are battling cancer. If that's not reason enough to donate whatever you can then I don't know what other reason you would need.

That's all for this week I look forward to seeing everyone again next week.
