The FULL Desert Peach Collection

WHEW! It took two years of scanning, cleaning, proofing, layout and upload -- but the COMPLETE two-volume Desert Peach collection is now available in print at the Little Store (look in the links column for this blog).

It's done in trade size, because otherwise the upload size and costs would have been prohibitive. When you order it, be prepared for a couple of books you could hit somebody with.

To see the pages as though at full size, check out the Desert Peach Webcomic. We need comments for the letters page of the new print versions at the store on the same site. Your drawings and general nuttiness about the Peach very very welcome for upcoming issues. Add the comments on the site, send the drawings or photos to me at donnabarr01 at gmail dot com.

I will probably offer it to Diamond, just to let everybody know they can get it, but any retailer or reader can just go to the Lulu site, if they prefer. If you're a retailer, order it for your customers and just add a couple of bucks for your time, trouble, or whatever you think you need for a bit of profit, but keep it down for your people. Customers, support your store by ordering through the retailer -- and I'll send you a signed bookplate for each copy.

Full pdf downloads are also available on the Lulu site. Retailers -- download both of them and have a projection party at your store!

I've already set my rates, so I'm getting paid about the same, no matter how you order it. Enjoy!

Now on to the Stinz books..... Oy.

Emerald City Comicon 2009

I'm not a ANM (Adolescent Niche Market) fan, but they had the COOLEST thing at the con -- this sturdy, gold plastic Wonder Woman crown – with bright red light-up star! It was given away as a freebie by DC, and ended up all over the show on every kind of head. This cutie is workin' the look – but a lot of guys were wearing it and making it Theirs. And not worn across the forehead like a Roman centurion's helmet frontlet, but – like a tiara. You go, Boychicks.

Wonder Woman's Accountant.

Emerald City Comicon

Well, here I am, all set up at the Seattle Convention Center for the 2009 Emerald City Comicon. Check-in and unload was easy (well, except for getting lost in the parking bays) and they provided carts and directions. Nice.

I'm at the Hidmo restaurant tonight, having some injera, lentils and okra with an Amstel Light beer. They are very nicely letting me use their wi-fi. Nice place. Look it up when you get to Seattle. They have music nights, with performers from Africa, South America and more. Tasty food, nice people -- it's my living room when I'm in Seattle.

We'll see how this goes when the show starts on Saturday.

The Desert Peach Webcomic

See the pretty new link over there at the top of the list of extras? Go over there and read all the original Desert Peach pages, as they appear, day by day.

For the Stinz readers: stop whining! Dave says we'll be doing the same thing for YOU, too! So promote this site and we can get to the next one. Yay!
