Read the next episode of “So, You’re A Cartoonist?” here: [link]


This happened to me when I attended my first comic con. I signed up to be on the guest list months ahead of time, but when I arrived I was mysteriously absent from their master list of guests.

This is part 1 of 2. So please don't ask "what happened next?" because you will find out soon enough. Patience young grasshopper... patience...

EDIT: For all of you who think I got the wing in the airplane panel "wrong" please take a look at this image: [link] I was trying to show the wing from this perspective (seated in front of the wing looking back at a 45'ish angle) and I am terribly sorry if it wasn't clear enough. I made a mistake, and there's no need to continue to point it out.

The trick with these things is "follow-up". When you're booking anything months in advance, you have to call back at least every two months until the big day, to make sure you haven't gotten lost in the system like that. Oh well, at least you got two funny comics out of it. :-)

This happened to me... this FushiCon last year in England, flew over there too meet Andrea, then I wasn't on the list. I was still in the database, lucky me~

My condolences go to you with all your deadlines (: I don't work well with deadlines either xD
Love your comics. Just curious why people always argue over them and insult them :S Seems kinda silly.

Your face in the last panel is just perfect. xD

I love how the doorman/master list guy can tell you you're not on the list without opening his eyes.

lol that was great but my question is : Why is the keyboard plugged in the monitor ??
TomPreston Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011
Because the monitor... IS the computer.

Ever been to a Mac store?
