Raping boys is not OK.

Friday's strip caused a bit of an uproar in the GWS-reading community, so without giving away the plot, I'd like to make one thing very, very clear:
I DO NOT THINK MALE RAPE IS OK!!

I'm kicking myself for starting the Chris & Candy story arc just before a month-long break, but just trust me, you should wait until the story unravels in July to make any assumptions about what I think is acceptable.
Meanwhile, Chris is just gonna have to fend for himself for 30 days.

In other news, if you're not going to the Paradise Toronto Comic Con or Heroes Con, you're doing yourself a great disservice.
These shows are two of my fast faves (and I've only been to either of them once!), and GOD you just NEED to be at at least one of them!

Toronto
June 8-10

The Paradise Toronto show is this wonderfully laid-back convention in (duh) Toronto that has some fantastic guests I rarely get to see.
For some reason everyone in that town is stunningly gorgeous and talented, and (get this) NICE.
And shit, they all say "eh." You've gotta love these people.

I want to list EVERYONE whose work I love, but these ones stand out the most:
Raina Telgemeier,
Christine Norrie,
Ryan North,
Tara McPherson,
Stuart Immonen,
J. Bone,
Michael Cho,
Cameron Stewart, and of course
Rob Coughler and Ramon Perez.

I'm honored to be a part of the Women Of Comics group, as well as the Sunday 3:00 "Caught in a Web of Comics" panel, which includes the aforementioned stunningly handsome Perez and Coughler duo as well as Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics.

Heroes (Charlotte, NC)
June 15-17

Oooooh, Heroes Con, how I love thee.
This con is becoming my Pittsburgh of the south (I know some people don't dig on Pittsburgh, but it's still got a place in my heart).

This is another excellent show with OH MY GOD the guests!! CHECK OUT THE GUESTS!!

If you're planning on going to the Wizard Philly show instead of this one, you should seriously reconsider.
Here are a few reasons:
Kyle Baker,
Tommy Lee Edwards,
Matt Fraction,
Liz Greenfield,
Adam Hughes,
Jim Mahfood,
Chris Moreno,
Phil Noto,
Bill Ellis,
James Hatton,
Jennie Breeden, and
Andy Runton. And, well, me.

And if THAT didn't win you over, the ultra-hot Liz Greenfield and I will be doing a panel together*.
It's us. So it will be a riot. And you probably won't understand half of it, because Liz is a gigglemachine, and it's contagious.
But c'mon. You're never gonna see anything like this again (unless it's us, in a panel, at next year's Heroes Con).

Oh, and they have a sweet website with a great Indie Island!

*Date and time to come!
