Death of Toonami: Rest in Peace

September 23, 2008 Commentary, News Comments Off on Death of Toonami: Rest in Peace

I’m back from AWA. I somehow managed to miss every single panel that I had wanted to attend; managing an artists’ table was just far more time-consuming than I’d anticipated. I couldn’t step away for more than ten minutes at a time without feeling horribly guilty.

Anyway, I promise this will be the last of the self-promotion for a while, but here are some of the things I’ll be selling at AWA this weekend:
