#826: Now That You Mention It

Short one this time — partly to balance out the long one on Monday, and partly because I’m moving on Monday morning, so I need to get these next two done quickly, so I can pack all my shit up.

Those of you on the website will see new sharing icons below. I wanted to replace the inefficient AddThis code I was using with something faster (ShareThis is even slower), so I made little bit of inline SVG+CSS. It uses zero Javascripts and zero linked images and weighs only about 6k, so it is much, much faster. (I don’t get statistics like I would with AddThis, but really, I don’t care about that stuff). It does, however, not play nicely with older browsers that don’t like either inline SVG or base64-encoded transparent PNGs. If that’s the case, much of the rest of the site probably looks jacked up anyway, and you should get a new browser.

If you run a website of your own and would like to use this yourself, I’ve put it up over at Github.

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.

BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!

If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:

When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.

I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
