I’ll be at booth 623 next to Cyanide & Happiness and Dorkboy Comics and across from Lar, Sam and Fuzzy, Weregeeks, Girls with Slingshots, and Questionable Content.

Jennie will be braving the thawing north this weekend to exhibit at Calgary Expo.
This will be another chance to pick up Volume 8 before we officially launch it, and you get to skip those crazy shipping costs that magically happen because of sovereignty, or something.
Pass by table C02 and snatch yourself a copy before they run out!
I’ll be in Calgary Canada next weekend at the Calgary Expo!
There’s a Devil’s Panties panel on Friday April 25 from 5:30pm in the Quarter Horse.
Ill also be on the “Creating Webcomics” panel Saturday April 26 @ 4:30pm, also in the Quarter Horse.
My table is C 05 I’ll be hugging the column in the right corner of the room in the Exhibitor area (I got too much shit to fit in the artist alley area). I’m across from WooHoo, Pins n Things, and Atomic Horse. The end of my row has Button Mash and Calgary Stemapunk Assemblage. Around the corner is my friends Spinnerette! I’m also two isles away from Girls with Slingshots and Blind Ferret. So it’s a nice neighborhood.
The youth hostel that I was staying at was literally in the middle of a construction site. But it really wasn’t the hoodlums that I was worried about. That goose was punching holes in glass with his beak.
I had all my paperwork and taxes done and was all ready to pay the $150 to get a temporary sellers permit and the customs officer asked “Do you have your letter?” and I got all flustered. “Um, my Canadian friends are in the airport to pick me up. I can get them to write me a letter of recommendation?” But it turns out that you just need a letter from wherever you’re going to work so that they know that you’re really going to work there. I had an e-mail from the convention detailing the specific legal chapters that we were applying for. The customs officer said that the e-mail was fine or even my name listed on the exhibitor section of the Calgary Expo would do.
I got totally into eavesdropping on the other guy though. I saw a business man going into another back room when I walked up to the counter and I listened while another customs officer called someone and this conversation took place. So apparently, if you’re not a nice person, you can’t get into Canada.
Okay, just spent $540 shipping 229 books to Calgary. (They’re printed in Canada, so in theory they’ll be okay crossing the border?) PLEASE come buy them from me at Calgary Expo next month! (I really don’t want to ship them back)
Getting ready for Calgary. I’ve got my plane ticket booked and youth hostel reserved. Still have to figure out shipping and customs. Here’s the neighbors that I could find. Let me know if you find out who else will be at those tables.
