Oh, Waiter! - 029



A few hours late, but here it is. The things I tried that I thought would save time ended up costing me time. Live and learn.

A nice write up about this comic can be read HERE.

See you next time.

Once I Was the King Of Spain - 026



And now I eat humble pie.

Poor, poor King


I'm still trying out different ways for adding lack to the strips besides using black pieces. Sometimes that isn't enough contrast.

See you next time.

King Moves - 025



Anyone have a better title for this one? I'm not liking what I've got and I can't think of another.

Free Comic Book Day was a blast. Talked to lots of people, gave away lots of the mini comics I had printed off (see last post) and one kid even asked me to sign one. Good times.

Time to go and read the comics I picked up today.

See you next time.

King's Placement - 024



I completely forgot to remind new readers of where the King goes at the begining of the game. Oops. Luckily I was able to comandeer this FCBD post. Thanks for your patience.

I will be at Gamezilla in Moncton, NB on Saturday, May 2nd for Free Comic Book Day, my favourite day after Christmas and Easter but before my birthday and the last day of school.

This year I will be giving away copies of The Chess Comic Sampler I printed up for the occasion. It is two sheets of paper printed double sided and "saddle stapled" (I think it is called). It has most of the first dozen strips and a few out of sequence at the end. I think it turned out pretty well and I hope I get some takers. Gamezilla, my comic shop, has been giving me a table on FCBD for the last couple of years because of my other website comicsintheclassroom.net. I know how to talk to parents, teachers and librarians and I come stocked with a whole lot of younger reader books that the store can order but doesn't carry. I will be giving out copies of the Chess Comic and my grade 3 class' comic; I'll be schmoozing with interested parents and drawing next week's chess comic.

It is a day full of awesome!

Wish me luck.

I will have a new comic up tomorrow.

See you next time.
