I'm a HUMAN TURD, don'tcha know!

Okay. I have an apology to make. For being stupid.

And who was I stupid to?! The incredible Colin White! I have upset him! I have dishonoured the honourable name of honour!

Well, mostly I just disappointed him. But that's almost worse.

In my scramble to make our tiny zine fit into the affordable page numbers, I displaced his comic, while curiously forgetting to remove his name from the table of contents. (Thus my conclusion of becoming a human turd.)

So, even though I've already apologized to him personally, I needed to make this public.


**Reminder: Georgia is a human (turd, sometimes) who makes mistakes. A LOT. If she ever fucks up with you in the future, it is NOT a personal thing. She's just...busy, is all. And forgetful. And sometimes blind. And forgetful.

Looking ahead.

So it's looking like we've got ourselves a spot at the Comics and Graphic Novels tent for Word on the Street!

To celebrate, we'll be publishing another issue in September in addition to the scheduled release in December. The only catch is that we have to pull it together very fast, and that means we're instating some guidelines:

Submissions to this issue MUST BE SHORT. We're saying less than five pages. Actually, less than three would be best. As for a theme, that's out the window. We want you to do whatever you want. Multiple submissions are also cool, but conside that we might not have space for all of them.

Also, the release in December is set to go as usual, also sans-theme. If your ideas can't be confined to two pages, consider working on a piece for this longer issue. If you're super ambitious, do both!

Meetings in Toronto will take place with the two schedules coming together, working simultaneously to acheive these two publishing goals. This will be a hell of a production period, and by the end of it, we're gonna have SO MUCH to show for it!

If you want to join in, now's the time. The short issue is not very demanding at all, so get in there and test the waters. If you like it, keep going! If not, we'll be glad to have had you at all.

So long! Calendar for meetings to be posted after Sunday's Meet'n'Greet.

To anyone and everyone who came out to the launch on Tuesday - that was the BEST NIGHT EVER.

The wedding went off without a hitch - literally - and the bands were incredible! And best of all, now our next issue is almost completely taken care of! Which is a good thing, because September is only a short while away, and slipping a fundraiser in there would be haaarrrdd.

Yes, that's right! Next issue in September!

This issue is going to be mostly composed of the leftovers from this issue - the people who just didn't have enough time to get it done, but who still want to get it out there. Also, some newbies, but it'll be a tight squeeze to get it done in time!

If you happen to be thinking about getting on board, time's a-wasting! Email me quick! We're gonna do this thing!

Deadline for next issue's submissions: Sunday, August 23rd!

We're gonna make it

Holy crap, for once in my life I'm not scrambling to meet the deadline.

This Tuesday, we're launching our second issue, and you know what? I'm ready. Everything is in place, and I'm relaxed enough that even if something does go wrong, I'm not going to freak.

Well, I might freak a little bit, but it's not going to be because I'm sleep deprived, malnourished, and doing every last thing on my own. No, it'll be because everyone gets a little nervous when there's a glitch. And that's normal.

So this is the final week! Launching on Tuesday I AM SO EXCITED! I've never been more proud.

I hope you can join me in my gloating about the people who made this: I know them, and they know me back! Let's celebrate everyone's hard work and creativity! Let's drink until we can't feel our faces!

I'm sure this won't end in embarassment...

Love until then, (and afterwards, too)
