You know, it’s not fair to expect these guys to be good swordsmen just because they went to a school for swordsmanship…and achieved its second highest honor. Seriously, though, there was a gulf of ability between these two mutts and Maliya Pel, and Jada Nilthrex’s talents lie somewhere that gulf…somewhere closer to Maliya’s level of skill.

Not much else to say today…lots of writing to do and a convention to prepare for. Long Beach Comic Expo, Saturday and Sunday! Hunter Black will be at Booth F20, so come and see us!

BOOTH F20!!!

Hunter Black Page 911 – You Were Expecting Someone Else?

This is page 911, and I choose to think of Porsches rather than emergencies or terrorists, thank you very much.

This weekend is Long Beach Comic Expo and Will and I will be there! We are at Booth F20, so come and check us out! We got some new convention trimmings for our booth this past week, like a new table display hanging:

…and an embarrassing list of my credits in an effort to use my résumé to give our comic more credibility…

…although to be honest, we have no idea if any of this stuff will work. I know that if you guys are at the convention and you decide to stop by, that will be worth something to us, no doubt.

Oh yeah, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hunter Black Page 910 – Your Power Is Breaking

I often wonder what goes through the quieter guy’s head when the more talkative guy uses words like “my” instead of “our.”

I don’t mind telling you guys, I am tired. #Squirrel had eye surgery on Friday. Her bad eye is bad and her good eye is recovering, so she’s effectively blind at the moment, but the ophthalmologist told us that everything seems to have gone perfectly, and that everything in her eye looks as it should, so she’s in great spirits. Here’s the thing about my wife: when she’s in great spirits, she likes driving me crazy, so she is having a grand time using me as a seeing-eye chef/secretary/chauffeur.

SHE ACTUALLY WANTED ME TO COOK HER DINNER LAST NIGHT INSTEAD OF HER MOTHER. I’d consider it a compliment except that I’m getting my butt kicked all over.

Seriously, I do have to be very present for her, and I have to be mindful of the layout of the apartment so she can navigate it without any dangerous surprises while her eye heals, and I have to keep it presentable for her mom and her aunts who are coming by to help us out. Also, Will and I are in the middle of convention prep, I’m working on the comic and a pilot, I’m scheduling meeting with producers and other writers, oh, and I’m a bartender. All of this while fighting a chest cold.

Look, I know I sound whiny. I AM being whiny. But this is the spot where I get to vent this stuff without laying guilt on my wife that she neither needs nor deserves, and I can’t see you guys giving me looks or hear you guys calling me a [REDACTED] under your breath.

Now I have to run and go pick up the new dining room table that #Squirrel has decided that she wants.

PS: Happy Birthday, Ashley! (Ashley’s my little sister. There is literally no possibility that she will read this, but I want you guys to know how awesome I am.)

Look at how happy Tyne is. He doesn’t get to have the upper hand all that often. Byzan, however, is still a bit of a Deputy Downer.

Well, tomorrow is a big day. I’m taking #Squirrel in for eye surgery tomorrow. After that, she’ll be homebound for 2-4 weeks after that, and she basically won’t be able to see for most of that time, as I understand it. TWO TO FOUR WEEKS.

I can’t overstate how hard a situation like that is. I can’t imagine being basically blind for that long. It would drive me crazy. I mean, I depend on my eyes UTTERLY. I’d be unable to work, to read, to watch TV. And I’d need someone to help me with damn near everything.

So I’m going to be nursemaid and seeing-eye dog for a month. It’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster, I’m sure of it. It’ll be hard on me and WAY harder on her.

Small price to pay to preserve her vision, though. Very small price to pay. (We’re also paying several thousand dollars, but that’s neither here nor there.)

For those of you that don’t remember, Byzan (the baldy one) and Tyne (The one with the Wolverine hair) were students at the Jeramsus School, Maliya Pel’s old school. (If you don’t remember Maliya, we’re doing something wrong.) They were sent to kill Maliya and she fought them off. Hunter ended up escorting them away, and they’ve popped up here and there since then. They’re a pain.

I just felt an earthquake while putting this page together! Haven’t felt one of those in while.

Will and I are deeeeeep in the throes of con prep. We have the Long Beach Comic Expo in two weeks and Wonder Con in a month and a half. We’re not going to be able to do all the stuff that we want to do for Long Beach, but we should have everything ready to go for Wonder Con in Anaheim.

We don’t have our booth information for Long Beach yet, but we will be at Booth SP-56 at Wonder Con. (You can expect this to be repeated quite a bit between then and now.)

We look forward to sharing pictures!

Oh, lest I forget, it’s Wednesday, and that’s #NewComicDay. Check out a webcomic called Witchy that I just found; it’s for the Harry Potter lovers in the world, without feeling in any way like a rip off. My only complaint is that there isn’t more of it available. Check it out!
