OUR TOP STORY...
"What the HELL, Tapalansky? It's freakin' Tuesday!"
Yeah, yeah, YEAH I know! Truth be told, when I started these weekly updates I knew there'd be a bit of a lull right about now but I figured I'd have something exciting to report last week. Turns out I'm all out of exciting for the present, though the coming weeks are going to be some doozies. Maybe another light news week or two and then BAM! All sorts of stuff to show you and tell you about. In the meantime...

IN OTHER NEWS...
I'm sorry to report that our free print promo with DCBS has come to a close as it was only for pre-orders and that cut-off has come and gone.

You an find Awakening Volume One for 20% off cover price at the following link:
LOCAL SIGHTINGS INCLUDE...
Convention season is upon us and with it comes your opportunity to meet your favorite creators (and most handsome guys on the internet that you know of) in person! As we move into the summer you'll find table/booth information and panel announcements along with store signings and more in el bloggo. Updates will always be highlighted and noted and, as the conventions start coming and going, we'll have some geektastic pictures of ourselves, our friends, and all the insanity that is a comic convention.

AWAKENING IN THE PRESS...
Recently, those crazy guys behind Archaia's Some New Kind of Slaughter (also out this June!) and The Lone and Level Sands put together a lovely roundtable discussion regarding the return of Archaia. This love-in has since found a home on The Pulse, where you'll find the comments and musings of madmen (including yours truly and Alex). Find out more about Mark Smylie's morning routine, Josh Finney's shady black market organ farm, and see Marv Mann use the word lassitude in a sentence. Direct link below:
See you later this week, kids!
We love you.
