ABSTRACT STUDIO COMICS – JOURNAL
FIVE YEARS #7
I finished issue 7 of Five Years last night and sent it off to the printer. (We use Brenner Printing in San Antonio, TX for all our single issues and they have been fantastic to work with over the years, always prompt and accomodating, AND they get the books to Diamond for me. That alone is a huge contribution. So I highly recommend them to you if you’re an indy cartoonist looking for a printer.) So this issue is real now and scheduled to hit the stands January 8, 2020. Here’s your TV Listing teaser:
“Katchoo arrives in freezing Moscow to find the welcome mat is six floors down. But the falling snow reveals an old friend who helps Katchoo back to her feet.”
Three guesses who the old friend is. 🙂

2020 Convention Schedule:
Robyn has a list of confirmed conventions dates for next year. This list is likely to expand as some shows are still being discussed but here’s what we have so far… uhmm, look to the right. And there they are. I just wanted to point that out in case you missed it. Watch Upcoming Appearances for updates.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. 2019 has been an incredible year in many ways and I am extremely grateful for the privilege to continue doing what I love. You make that possible. Thank you.
The Strangers in Paradise Omnibus arrived safely and we’ve shipped out all the pre-orders. How’s THAT for a good news update?! Robyn and I are thrilled it worked out and the books are gorgeous and all the hard work to make it happen was worth it. Thank you to everyone who faithfully invested in this with your preorders. You were very important to the process and we could not have done it without you. We take your trust and support very seriously. Now we’re holding the books in our hand, I feel it is the result of many people coming together to make it happen. So cool.
Today being Dec. 11, the new issue of Five Years hits the stands today. Issue 6 has a deceptively simple cover; the story inside is deep—reaching all the way back to Echo—and it marks the return of SIP fan favorite, Casey! Fearless, affectionate… the only person we know who isn’t afraid of Tambi Baker. Good grief!
