Making Comics Fifty State Tour

My wife and I drove almost 500 miles with our two kids to visit her family last weekend. That was about 7 hours on the road — which is a lot of time to kill — so we talked about a lot of stuff. One of them was my fantasy to pack up the kids one summer into a rented RV and criss-cross the US going from comic convention to comic convention. We’d see America and hit a bunch of cons in the process.

And now I see that Scott McCloud has beaten me to the punch!

McCloud is doing much the same thing to promote his book, Making Comics, a cartooning tutorial. It’s the third book he’s written on comics theory and it looks terrific. It looks like it’s going to become my second-favorite how-to-draw-cartoons book.
