New Minicomic: Unpopular Species #5

Amid the preparations for Arisia last week, Gynn and I were frantically working on putting together the fifth installment of Unpopular Species, our science/nature minicomic series about creatures that are, well, less loved.

I ended up pulling a near-all-nighter on Friday night to get it done, but we managed to debut it on at the convention on Saturday.

Unpopular Species #5 covers the Northwestern US, and includes a dozen plants, animals, and fungi that have all had some sort of bad reputation, whether deserved or not. From banana slugs to grizzly bears, from giant Pacific octopi to poison oak, you will discover amazing and sometimes disturbing facts in every entry.

You can buy a copy here, or check out the Dandelion Studios website for more information.

Thanks to everyone who came out to see us at Arisia! We had a great time!

My Arisia Schedule

I'll be at the upcoming Arisia convention, January 17-20, 2014, in Boston MA.

I have a reading scheduled for Monday, 1/20 at 10 AM, sharing the timeslot with authors Anna Erishkigal and Greer Gilman.

In addition, I will be on the following panels:

Sat. 11 AM: All-Ages Comics: Still Out There
Sun. 10 AM: Home-Based Businesses & Children
Sun. 2:30 PM: Science Experiments (for ages 6-12)
Sun. 4 PM: Forty Years of Dungeons & Dragons

And finally, my comic company, Dandelion Studios, has a table in the dealers' room, so you can find me at the Dandelion Studios table (Table 118) during most convention hours not listed above.

Hope to see you there!
