Late notice, as per usual, but I’ll be at Denver Comic Con Saturday, Sunday and Monday, as a guest at the BOOM! Studios booth. I’m not bringing any copies of my own books with me, because this event is a kick-off for the Clarence mini-series that I’ve been writing. But, unfortunately, due to time constraints, the first issue, drawn by the talented Evan Palmer, will not debut at the convention as planned, but we’ll still be there talk about the series. You can find me and Evan at the BOOM! booth, number 629, for the duration of the show, and you can also pick up a Denver Comic Con exclusive cover that I drew for Lumberjanes #13! And hey, if that wasn’t enough, here are some times that you come and hear me talk about stuff like I’ve got a clue:

A Graphic Memoir w/ Liz Prince — Sunday May 24 @ 2:30 PM Room 303
Description: Join Liz Prince as she discusses her award winning and the popular graphic memoir Tomboy. A graphic novel about refusing gender boundaries, yet unwittingly embracing gender stereotypes at the same time, and realizing later in life that you can be just as much of a girl in jeans and a T-shirt as you can in a pink tutu.
