The Coming Storm

This coming weekend is one of my favorites of the year, as it is time for STAPLE!

STAPLE!, the brainchild of my good friend Chris Nicholas, is Austin, Texas’ first and only independent comics convention. You can find a write up on Ain’t it Cool News. I’ve served on the organizational committee since the beginning (last year), and I can tell you that STAPLE! is gonna rock your socks off this weekend.

But there’s more than that. You bet your sweet bippy (what the fuck’s a bippy?!).

So, here’s a rundown of what I’ll be doing STAPLE! weekend, and an open invitation for both of you to come along, as well.

FRIDAY

STAPLE! PRE-PARTY at AUSTIN BOOKS
8PM-11PM

Austin Books is by far the greatest comics shop in Texas (until The Austin Comics Ring shuts it down in a bloody conflict… bloody!). Well, come out at eight and join us for free pizza and beer and some good conversation with some great comics creators.

FLAMETRICK SUBS with SATAN’S CHEERLEADERS
11:30PM-2AM, Beerland

You probably don’t need me to explain this. I’ve mentioned them both on here enough in the past. We’re going, though. We gonna get drunk, and dance, and look at hot women in tattoos… and get drunk. You better fuckin’ be there!

SATURDAY

STAPLE!
10AM-6PM, Red Oak Ballroom

Here we go! Eight hours of comics madness. I’ll be sharing a table with Rafael Navarro, and I’m bringing a cooler full of suds with me. Come by, and point and laugh!

SILKY BUREAUCRATS LIVE ART SHOW
9PM-?, The Ritz Upstairs

Jim Mahfood and Dave Crosland drink and paint and sell and drink and paint and we all sit back and drink and watch in awe. Trust me, you can’t miss this shit.

SUNDAY

Sunday is for Exhibitors only. Sorry kids. We gotta recover sometime.
