Yes, I apparently will be your monkey.

Shortpacked!: Maybe it should have been carrier pigeons.

BotCon preregistration forms were emailed to Transformers Fan Club members today, and that only means one thing! You get to spend about two hours waiting in Kinko's. Spending 2 hours re-re-re-re-re-re-re-sending a fax for several hours one day for every BotCon was sort of charming a few years ago, but in 2009 it just feels humiliating and demeaning. Fun Publications apparently has just one phone line, have never heard of the Intermanets, and of course once those forms go up, everyone tries to fax their registrations in at once. So I hope you like Kinko's! They'll get to know you, you'll get to know them... it'll be a grand ol' time, from 3pm to maybe 5 or 6.

I swear, we had quite the stack of fax rejection slips when we were done.

Colorized art by Hidetsugu Yoshioka!Tonight's comic was mostly Graham's idea, something he cooked up on the way home after our adventure. I was frustrated, was willing to come up with, draw, dialog, and color a strip in a few hours and push back what would have been tonight's strip to Friday, just so I could address how ridiculous this is. So.

The Japanese releases of Hot Shot, Dinobot, and the little Mini-Vehicles are coming up, and that usually means some neat art by Hidetsugu Yoshioka showing up in some magazine. Yoshioka has been doing Transformers art for nearly as long as the franchise has been around, and getting to see him draw Hot Shot (and Dinobot!) was a nice treat.

So I colored it!

I couldn't help myself. I was compelled.

That semi-smutty Joyce and Walky! art auction is still going down. Not doing too badly, either! I meant to set it for 3 days instead of 7, but oh well. Can't do anything about it now! Just means more time for you folks to think about it.
