Sales will help us determine how much demand there is for future Perils On Planet X adventures, so buy now!
So far, I’m only scheduled to appear at one comics convention this year, and that’s the Bangor Comic & Toy Convention at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine on April 9th and 10th. It looks to be a good show, with some big name media guests like Star Trek’s Nichelle Nichols and Denise Crosby, Doctor Who’s Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, wrestler Kevin Nash, and bunch of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers cast members. Comic guests include Marvel inker Bob Wiacek, Chris Sprouse, Rich Woodall and Paris Cullins.
I’ll be there with my wife, Brandi, and will have a bunch of stuff for sale, including Femme Noir, Gravedigger, Kolchak The Night Stlaker, Shadow House, and the brand new Perils On Planet X comic books. I’ve even had a new display banner made for the occasion.
Right now, I’m scheduled for a Comics Creators panel on Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening, I’ll be hosting a 50s sci-fi movie double feature of Cat-Women of the Moon and Teenagers From Outer Space! I’ll be dropping some knowledge/trivia about the films and pretending to be an authority on the subject.
So, if you live in Maine or Northern New England, I hope you’ll come to the show. I’d love to see you there!
All three issues of Perils On Planet X have been sent to the printer. In just a very short while, they’ll be available for mail order thru IndyPlanet.us. As soon as they’re ready to go, I’ll let everyone know here and Facebook and Twitter.
Since we’re self-publishing these, buying copies online is the best way to directly support me and Gene Gonzales… especially if you’d like to see more Planet X comics one day! Remember, these will not be available in stores – only by mail order or directly from Gene or myself at conventions.
So, stand by – ordering details coming VERY soon!
For the one or two of you who might find the information useful, I will be attending the BangPop show in Bangor, Maine (//www.bangpopmaine.com/) September 20 and 21st. I *may* also be exhibiting at the Portland Comic Expo in Portland, Maine on October 26th… but that’s not definite yet. Stay tuned…
Late last night, I updated some of the back-end software on the site (WordPress plugins), and since then, random pages of the comic (actually, random images all over the site) don’t seem to be showing up, at least, not in my browsers. It looks like the links are broken, and, being a pseudo-luddite, I can’t figure out how to repair them. Hopefully, it will either correct itself, or a new update will repair the problem.
So, if any of you are experiencing this… it’s not just you.
I’ll continue to try and fix it. (Oh, and maybe it should go without saying, but if anyone out there is a WordPress/Comics Easel guru, I’d sure appreciate some help!)
UPDATE: Thanks to the kind assistance of Philip M. Hofer, author of the Comic Easel plugin that I use on this site, the issue appears to have been resolved.
It’s that time of year again: convention season. If any POPX readers are attending HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC this weekend, stop by co-creator/artist Gene Gonzales‘ table and let him know how much you’re enjoying Perils On Planet X!
You’ll find him in Artist Alley at table number AA-1505. Tell him Donovan Hawke sent you!
