The rep carpet coverage continues on Albert the Alien! And happy Friday, by the way.

Miranda continues to interview the attendees of the event, this time looking at the audience. We have The English Teacher (all dolled up, and nervous about the kids being able to remember their lines); Deckard, the school janitor; Mr and Mrs Greyson, Gerty’s parents; and the Principal George Taylor and Vice Principal Ming, both of which clearly have a lot of school pride.

Oh yeah, and Wally’s there, too.

There’s a lot of drama that can happen tonight, with Gerty possibly having to have her first real kiss in front of everyone in the school – including her parents! Want to know what happens next? Come back next week Wednesday (and Friday) for more installments!


1) The Kickstarter campaign to fund the Albert the Alien Volume 1: New in School graphic novel is live! We’re going to be collecting all 100 pages from the webcomic, plus additional bonus stories! Be sure to pledge to the Kickstarter to see all the awesome updates, unlockable reward levels, stretch goals, and more! We’ll post a link once the campaign goes live.

2) Anime Central is this weekend! ACEN is the 3rd largest animation convention in the country, takes place in Rosemont, Il, and is my absolute favorite show of the year. Gabe will be in Artist Alley, and I will be a returning guest of the show! I’ll have a number of panels throughout the week (my panel schedule will be posted closer to the event date), as well as a number of books for sale. And commissions – did I mention Gabe and I will both be doing commissions?

We’ll also be doing some special fundraising activities for our Albert the Alien Kickstarter! The Kickstarter campaign starts at ACEN, and there will be a special prize for people who pledge at the show!

Here’s the panel schedule for the weekend (more may be added at random):

Introduction to RWP – 7pm – Panel Room 3
The Panel That Shall Not Be Named – 10pm – Panel Room 4

Time Management – 8:30pm – Panel Room 3
