Also, my bud Zach has just got the first print copies of his most recent self-published comic, Petrichor! It's a really gorgeous little bit of art.

RIP Mark Fisher

I remember reading his blog k-punk a lot in college and learning all this weird Theory stuff combined with pop culture.

Hey TT parents of young children! My good friend and colleague's sister is officially a published author and illustrator today with the release of Not Quite Narwhal! I got to read an proof copy and it's got a lot of heart and charm, along with a great message about alternative families. If that sounds like something you're interested in, I hope you'll check it out!

Super last minute, but I have two tickets to a Cory Doctorow/John Scalzi book signing in Santa Cruz, CA on Wed 4/26. They had originally and mistakenly tweeted out the date of 4/29, when I am in town, but I can't go on 4/26 because I will be very far away.

I've made arrangements with the bookstore for them to hold my signed copy of Walkaway, and I'll be picking that up separately, but they said I could have someone else use the tickets so they don't go to waste. I'm sure you'll have the opportunity to buy their books and have them signed at the event.

I read the hardback collection of The Eltingville Club . It's nice to see somebody show the worse parts of nerds. And the spinoff, Northwest Comix Collective reminded me of some people I know.

I went to CAKE today! I got a few cool little books:

I bought Travelogue and a little Zelda Zine from Aatmaja Pandya. She forbid me from reading the Zelda one until I play BOTW, so now I have to buy a Switch.

I got this rad-as-hell Earthbound Postcard from Andrea Bell:

I got Ben Sears's Towns, Townspeople, and Towns 2, which are basically D&D inspiration catnip:

And I bought this awesome Pizza book from my friend Beth. There are like 4 different ways to read it, it's amazing.

And finally, Evan Dahm was on the list of artists, but he cancelled at the last minute, so I again missed my chance to buy Rice Boy from him. One of these days I will own that book.

Final rating for CAKE: A+
