Well, sort of. On the last day of the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, a rep from came by our table to ask if Dan and I would be interested in pimping TAP LIVE on there podcast. We were told to ask for Sara, who turned out to be a lovely, very enthusiastic young lady, indeed. 

Dan and I spoke about the Apocalypse Plan, and Dan also pitched his BEARDO trade. It was a great time. You can watch the video here. We come on at about the 2h:48m mark.

Apocalypse Goes According to Plan

Yes, YES! The costumed people have spoken, as well as all of the other quirky comic shoppers, and they grabbed up The Apocalypse Plan like it was the antidote to boredom! And it is!

Here's a picture of our booth, complete with Rafael Nieves.

Before I left, we had around a dozen copies left, so I grabbed half of that. I posted a message on facebook asking anyone if they want to buy one, and I got three responses already. So I have three left. Anyone want them? They're numbers 98, 99 and 100, and they come with a signed print and an ashcan of a short story that Raf and I did. Message me here or at

THE APOCALYPSE PLAN continues to sell in record numbers! Dan and I have almost completely run out of copies of this limited edition Comic Con exclusive! Save for a few issues that we are hoarding for ourselves, this little-book-that-could has proven to be one of the most successful titles we've ever produced!

Today, we were interviewed by Elliot Serrano, of GEEK TO ME, the RedEye online site that covers the world of pop culture in its own inimitable fashion. Elliot was great to speak to, and gave us a proper forum in which to promote our wares. Serrano promises to post the interview, and his review of the book, very soon, and you'll be the first to know when that happens. That's Elliot, to the left in the above piccie, probing Dan and me... with questions! The humble creators pose heroically in front of their banner at table 42o2 in Artist Alley in the bottom photo.

Dan and I want to thank all of you who have purchased THE APOCALYPSE PLAN SPECIAL EDITION this weekend and given us such incredible feedback; this book is a real labor of love for us, and we hope that more of you show up on Sunday to take part in the orgy--- uh, love fest!

Special thanks to MB Sherman, who was on hand to take these very candid photos!

So, this morning, Dan made it to Con before me, while I made my journey via a long, long bus ride to the Donald E. Stephens Center. As I walked from the train station towards the Con, Dan called to check on my ETA. Five minutes, I said, why?

There's someone here to buy our book, he replied. 

Two minutes later, out of breath, and sweating profusely, I entered the convention center and raced to our table, 4202 in Artist Alley, silver pen in hand to sign yet another copy of our Comic Con Exclusive issue of the The Apocalypse Plan. This was at 9:05 am, a mere five minutes after the doors opened! And the day only got better after that!

The Apocalypse Plan is selling, folks, better and faster than even we could have imagined! Dan and I believe, if the last two days are any indication, that we might sell out of the book before we even get to Sunday's show!

1oo copies, signed and numbered by the creators, with a Comic Con-exclusive cover, priced at a reasonable $20. TAP is selling well, and quickly. Have you gotten your copy yet?

Doors open on Saturday, at 9. I'll be there, ready to sign. So will Dan. Will you?

Day one: success!

Preview night of the Chicago Con has come and gone, and so have several copies of the exclusive edition of The Apocalypse Plan. Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered them, and thanks also to those who made a point of stopping by the table and picking up a copy. Remember, the exclusive edition is limited to only 100 copies, and if we sold a bunch on the night when we're not supposed to sell anything, then we might have the good fortune of selling all of them. So if you want a signed, numbered, exclusive edition of the BEST book to hit the Chicago Con, meet us up at our table this weekend.

Below is the map to WizWorld Chicago's Comic-con extravaganza. Dan and I thought we'd make it easy for you to find us, so we made this. Our tables in artist alley are 4200-4202. We'll be sitting next to our friends and cohorts Len Kody and Antonio Maldonado, who will be there shilling their 1968 webcomic (which rocks the house!). This has been a public service message from your friends at The Apocalypse Plan. We'll see you there Thursday, August 6th through Sunday, August 9th!
