Listener Jemal emailed and asked me if I would do a Lumberjanes song. Being that I had read Lumberjanes, and that it’s a really good comic, I was like, “Sure!” See? It’s that easy to have your dreams come true.
It’s weird, I’ve had such a busy summer with work, touring, moving and getting settled into a new city – I’ve fallen insanely behind on a lot of comics (except X-Men, still caught up with that. Mystique? Really, Chuck?). So in a weird way, I’ve found it easier to follow non-big-Two books that have their own contained stories. Things like Lumberjanes, where you can follow a single title that has a vision by one creative team and isn’t bogged down by decades of canon to follow.
Anyway, that’s a tangent. The point is that if you like Gravity Falls and summer camp scary stories and good comics, you should definitely read Lumberjanes, from Boom by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis (art by Brooke Allen). It’s a great title, and one that you can hand to even younger readers and feel good about. For more information, check out Boom’s page on the comic.
Also, this Saturday I’ll be at Bombay’s in Ventura, CA performing at the official Central Coast Comic Con after party. Doors at 9m $5 donation to get in! More info here. Next week, Rose City Comic Con.
On October 18, I’ll be doing a 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon! 24 hours of me writing, recording and posting as many songs as I can. Pledge a per-song (optional cap) or lump sum donation by emailing email@example.com. A portion of proceeds will go to benefit RAINN.org, to fight sexual assault. Last time I did this, I made sixteen songs in a day. Can I beat it?
