Cul de Sac collection - I got a sneak peak

I just saw Our Man Thompson and got a sneak peek at the Cul de Sac book collection that Andrews McMeel is doing. It looks great - there's a ton of the Sunday strips that had only appeared in the Post, and they're still in color. You're going to want this one, even if there isn't a Petey temporary tattoo enclosed (I'd been hoping...).

Richard will be making appearances to sign them in the DC region this fall - he's still working out when and where. Buy 5 and give them for holiday gifts. I'm going to.

I'll be in the DC area for three days starting the Sunday of SPX- hope he'll be making an appearance somewhere during that time. Not only do I need to get him to sign my copies of the Cul de Sac book but I'd also like to get his signature on the art I bought from him at Heroes Con (which- despite your warning- I forgot to take care of).
Will you be making appearances anywhere to promote/ sign your Pekar book?

Kevin, that's great to hear. I believe Richard has been invited to be on a panel at SPX so should be there for one of the days.

Hah! To tell you the truth, I have no idea. I'm supposed to be submitting ideas on promoting it to the Press, but so far I haven't had too many. But thanks for asking!

Hey Kevin, send me an email (through the link). I didn't sign those and we didn't trade email addresses either. But I'll be at SPX in some form. Poltergeistically.

And Mike, you should be pushing you book at SPX. And I'll be over in 15 minutes to pick up Charlotte.
