I can't believe how quickly the year is already flying by. Next week, I'm hitting the road again! First stop... **VANCOUVER, BC!**

Saturday, February 26 Serendipity 2011 Vancouver, BC I'll be presenting and speaking on a couple of panels about graphic novels, the theme of this year's Serendipity Roundtable. Registration is required for this event.


I'm also doing two school visits while I'm in Vancouver, but of course those aren't open to the public. I've heard that my Kidsbooks event is going to be extremely popular, so I encourage you to buy your tickets now if you'd like to attend!

Next stop...


Emerald City Comicon March 4 - 6 Artist Alley, Table G-10 Here, you can find Dave and myself all weekend, selling books and other goodies! I've heard nothing but wonderful things about ECCC, so I'm really looking forward to being there. Here are the panels you can find me on, over the course of the event:

Saturday, 4 PM: Super-Blank: The Game Show (Room 4C1-2) Get ready to match the comics stars! Strikingly similar to the classic TV game show, The Match Game, a panel of comics "celebrities" will fill in the blanks as contestants from the audience try to match them for points and prizes. Expect humor and shenanigans with comics pros in a way they’re rarely, if ever, seen. Starring: Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Chris Giarrusso (G-Man, Mini-Marvels), Raina Telgemeier (Smile) & Dave Roman (Agnes Quill), Kyle Stevens (Kirby Krackle), Brad Guigar (Evil, Inc.) and more TBA! Hosted by Gregg Schigiel (SpongeBob Comics, X-Babies).

Sunday, 12 noon: KIDS COMICS INTERACTIVE READING (Room 4C1-2) A live comics reading involving lots of audience participation and silliness. Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy) and Chris Giarrusso (G-Man) will perform chapters from their all-ages graphic novels. The illustrated panels will be projected onto a large screen for all to see, and volunteers from the audience will be chosen to play some of the characters.


I've just learned I'll be visiting two elementary schools while I'm in Seattle, but I don't have any other public events scheduled aside from ECCC. That means I get to relax and enjoy the city a bit! If you'd like to say hello or get a book signed in Seattle, your best bet will be to come to the convention.

Hope to see you on the west coast!
