My first announcement is that there will be a Carbon Dating booth on the Hilton 2nd floor (right outside Skeptrack) for DragonCon! My wife @Abbey_Saurus and Skeptics In The Pub cohost @BenBell will be accompanying me for an epic convention roadtrip. This is awesome for two reasons; Not only are Abbey and Ben massive inspirations for the comic itself, but they’ve both agreed to team up for the Carbon Dating podcast! This means a lot to me, now Ben and I can continue our great work together after Abbey and I relocate to Colorado this fall. We’ll record our first episode at the convention and have a great time giving away Carbon Dating preview comic books. Be sure to drop us a line or come by our booth if you’ll be there!
I’ll be out of the country for a couple weeks, hopefully I can get another comic book run printed before I leave! I was very encouraged by the positive response from my fellow Skeptics at TAM2013 and wound up giving all 25 copies away. I hope to see some familiar faces in Atlanta, I know I met plenty of nerds who are at the SDCC right now.
More announcements to come as this comic endeavor gets off the ground. I hope you’re enjoying the first dozen strips online, I can’t wait to dive deeper into the characters and themes. I’ve got these mapped out well past the first 100 where things get really interesting once the characters are established. I think my count sits at a comfortable 70 right now, and my goal is to get to 100 by September and build an ebook if this work trip doesn’t slow me down too much. Let me know what you think on twitter @CarbonKyle!
