“This is a True Story…” Time for another True-ish tale of Denizens, Bars, Characters in the City and Other Low Places. Time for a new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#100)
This week: ‘True Story: a Poem by Ken Arkind’ … or ‘HEY! IT’S 30 MILES OF CRAZY #100!’
Yep. Number 100! This week is a special adaptation of National Poetry Slam Champion Ken Arkind’s poem ‘True Story’. Many thanks to Ken for letting me adapt this. He’s pretty brilliant. You should go out (or online), do yourself a favor, and check out Ken reading many of his other poems on YouTube… Like this one.
That said, the new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! collection: Another Round. This is the second 30MOC! volume and collects #70 through #125. “But Karl…”, you may ask yourself if you are prone to such things… “Karl… How have you collected 30MOC! comics up to #125 when you are only on #100?” Good question. There are comics in the volume that have not been posted as yet! By one of the new collection… AND YOU GET TO SEE INTO THE FUTURE! Well, at least the next 25 weeks on this one particular website, but still… FUTURE!
“Dancing Aliens…” I’ll be exhibiting at Denver Comic Con this weekend (No Friday, just Saturday, Sunday, and Monday… since it’s a holiday weekend and the con seems to be doing something different…) in the Artist Valley table C10.
I will have copies of the newest 30 MILES OF CRAZY! Collection: Another Round… which I’ll post a photo of when I get copies into my greedy little hands (which should be tomorrow.)
My latest interview with Groovey.TV about Denver Comic Con is up and live. Watch as I babble, drink, blink a lot, talk with my hands, and sing the ‘Jeopardy’ theme song. Also… my ridiculous hair seems to steal every scene. Don’t know why I work with that guy…
Yes, I met Sylvester McCoy over last weekend at Denver Comic Con and gave him a print of the portrait I did of the Seventh Doctor. He seemed to like it, reading and approving of the quote I chose for him. I found out later (from some of the convention organizers) that Mr. McCoy was ‘thrilled’ by the piece, kept talking and showing it around. On hearing that, my dark jaded heart grew three times….
