Yay, Jane!

Congrats to Jane Irwin for a successful lauch of her new graphic novel, Vogelein vol. 2: Old Ghosts! I surprised her by dropping in unannounced yesterday at her signing at Fanfare Sports & Entertainment to help her kick off the new book. After closing up shop there, she, her awesome husband Paul Sizer, and I hoofed it over to RocketStar Cafe for more signing goodness and to party with the cool kids.

I had a wonderful time hanging out with Jane & Paul, and they graciously let me crash on the couch after we stayed up until the wee hours talking comic shop and having a good ole’ time. Plus, Paul showed me me some super sneak peeks into his new project, BPM. I can’t wait to see it come to completion! It’s awesome work, Paul.

If you haven’t seen Jane’s work before, you should check it out. She’s a fantastic artist and storyteller, Vogelein is a wondeful read. I’m so glad to see the second volume in print!

Congrats again, Jane on the new book! You rock!

Wedding Weekend!

Wow! What an incredible wedding weekend! Our warmest thanks to everyone who came out to help us celebrate the occasion, and especially to our friends and family who helped us put everything together at the eleventh hour and made the big day run so smoothly. We cannot begin to express our gratitude! It was so wonderful to see everyone together for such a special day.

It’s hard to believe it’s already all come and gone, but luckily enough, so many of you helped capture the moments in photographic form. Thanks to Maciek (who was our interpid photographer for the day), Stacie, and our families (my Dad, Al, Vona, Maura, and Molly) for passing along their own photos to contribute, too. If anyone else has photos, please feel free to post or send them along if you have the chance. We’d love to see and share them!

Also thanks to everyone for their stunning generosity. Our front room is filled with gifts, now. We’ve heard from people we didn’t even expect, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you! When we first registered for all this stuff, we honestly didn’t think we’d actually *get* everything on the list, but that’s what we got. Wow. We’ve promised ourselves that we won’t start using and putting everything away until the “Thank You’s” are sent. Hopefully we haven’t set the bar too high. In any case, you’ll be hearing from us personally very soon.

For those of you who want to see more details, here’s a link to the website we put together for the occasion.

Thanks again, everybody! It was so great to see you, especially if you travelled far to join us. To everyone else we didn’t see, thanks for thinking of us. Hopefully we will see you sooner rather than later in our upcoming travels.
