It’s shocking to think that Laura wouldn’t trust us to bring the most important things we could possibly be responsible for on our wedding day. On second thought, it’s not shocking at all. For once, at least, it wasn’t my judgement and sense of responsibility being questioned!
Through the magic of the internet, you should be reading this just as the doors open to the Comix & Stories convention at Heritage Hall in Vancouver. As I mentioned in the last post, I’ll be there with copies of the first LKB collection of comic strips titled, most appropriately, “The Wedding.” The collection includes most of the strips that have led up to and including the wedding and clocks in at a colossal 32 pages. I might also add that it’s 100% uncensored, meaning that all the things too shocking to appear on the internet are there for the world to see. That’s pretty much worth the cost of admission right there! So if you’re reading this and you live in the area (and would rather spend your afternoon in a stuffy hall surrounded by a bunch of hipsters than at the beach), come on by and say hello.
Here’s a sneak peak of the cover (right side being the front):
In other news, I’ll be appearing at Comix & Stories this Sunday in Vancouver, BC. Billed as “a day of alternative and small press comics, zines, artwork and culture,” I’ll be there with snazzy business cards and postcards, as well as the very first LKB comic strip collection for sale! So if you’re in the area, pop in and say hello. You can get more details on the event here.
This strip also sees the official introduction of Laura’s other sister Julia (she had a kind of cameo during the party scene a couple of weeks ago), who along with Heather and Leesa, plays the role of bridesmaid. She also holds the honour of being the hardest person to draw, which partly explains why she doesn’t look much like she does in real life. Sorry, Julia. I tried.
The big reveal from last day’s shocking cliffhanger! What will Laura do? Will the ceremony be a shambles? Will the photos be ruined? Will Brett once and for all draw Leesa with a consistent hairstyle? Find out next Wednesday in a narrative so epic in proportions that it could only be called…”The Wedding” (Part 3)!
Now what could possibly cause Laura to be so alarmed? Take a close look, and you might get it. Otherwise, tune in on Sunday for more pre-wedding calamity!
On another note, for those of you how regularly tune in via Facebook, LKB will be on autopilot for the next couple of weeks while Laura and I do some travelling. That means that I won’t be sending updates through Facebook, however, there will continue to be new comics posted during that time through the magic of WordPress. So if you don’t want to miss any of the action, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and subscribe to receive updates via email and you won’t miss a beat!
