One of my go-to bands when I could use some cheer!
fightwing23 asked: Is the Red Sonja/Conan crossover happening or has it been cancelled?
It’s happening and it’s actually awesome. :)
Because my flight to Chicago was cancelled due to ‘maintenance,’ I will not be able to make the signing at THIRD COAST COMICS in Chicago this Thursday night, 4/24/2014, but it is rescheduled for Monday evening, and we really hope you can still come out!
This breaks my heart as I love the people who run that shop and the people who are customers have been letting me know they were coming to the event all week. I am so, so sorry, there was nothing we could do. We tried every airline, we were willing to drive an extra three hours to leave from a different airport, there was no available flight to get us to Chicago on time. I hate to let people down, it kills me, but there was just no way to get there after this cancellation of my flight.
So we are RESCHEDULING the signing. It is now taking place MONDAY 4/28/2014, from 5:00-9:00 pm. We are not giving up!
I understand the shop is not usually open on Monday so the owner, Terry, is making a special exception for this fun event. My understanding is that this is an awesome store.
If you are attending the event and you have friends you think might be attending, please spread the word to them so that they know of the change in date, okay?
Very, very sorry for the inconvenience, we tried EVERYTHING to make it on time and just had no other option. BUT we are going to make the event Monday very fun, so please come by!
The store is THIRD COAST COMICS at
6234 N. Broadway in Chicago.
We were able to get a much later flight, so my C2E2 schedule is unaffected.
Terry has a lot of fun stuff planned so please come and bring stuff for me to sign, or just come say hello and visit!
Once again, very, very sorry but come by on Monday! Be there or be square!
PS: I think we are going to have a few cool door prizes at the signing on Monday. Come win something!
K: You better be nice to me today, Dan, ‘cause it is “National-Be-Nice-To-A-Redhead-Because-I-Said-So-Day”.
D: That’s not a thing.
K: Yes it is. Just look at the calendar.
::Dan looks at the calendar. Sees sloppy mess that had to have been scrawled with a Sharpie clenched in someone’s teeth::
D: Just because you say it’s true doesn’t mean it is, Kate. Try again.
K: Well, there should be one.…
I really, REALLY like Crimespree Magazine, so this very positive review for Red Sonja is a huge thrill. Thank you, guys!
-inquisitiveginger asked: Hey Gail! This is a weird question, but I'm going to be involved in a super awesome medical-themed event later in the year which includes costumes of medical themed characters (like Harley as her Dr Quinzel get up) and I was wondering if theres any female Marvel or DC characters you could think of that have a similar affinity? Like a nurse, doctor, healer, etc. It would be super mega helpful <3
Can anyone help out here?
There’s Night Nurse, Dr. Strange, Doctor Mid-Nite, and for some reason I am drawing a blank from there.
crimmson asked: Hi, this is kind of embarrassing but I learned about you via tumblr posts I saw other people reblog, and now that I've been following you I really want to read some stuff you've written. Do you have any particular recommendations on where I should start?
Well, the first RED SONJA trade just came out, I’m very proud of that.
I am proud of the following, which all should be easy to get into:
WONDER WOMAN: The CIRCLE
BIRDS OF PREY: OF LIKE MINDS and SENSEI AND STUDENT
WELCOME TO TRANQUILITY
Those are just some things off the top of my head, tpbs that give a decent chunk to read. Good luck and thanks!
theimancameron asked: Hey Gail, who's the most surprisingly fun character you've ever written for DC?
I always loved the Justice League, it was the comic that hooked me on DC when I was just a teeny girl learning to read.
But I never cared for J’onn. I just thought he was boring and weird and had too many powers and the ones he DID have mostly seemed like Superman’s and I just didn’t like his design or anything about him.
Then I wrote him in JLA: Classified and urgh, every scene with him was just fun. It was my perception that was wrong, not the character.
