Crozonia, Storm Hawks and other news

First off, thanks to all of you who showed up to the The Watcher Storm Hawks Signing Event at the Beaches Jazz Fest. We had a great time! Thanks to Jaime Antonio, Marvin Law, Marvin Mariano, Marcio Takara, and Craig Yeung for sparing some of their precious time.

Some news:

- Unfortunately, I will not have Crozonia #4 ready for Fan Expo Canada (August 28-30). Between Storm Hawks production work, more Bakugan Freelance, and buying a house, I just couldn't get it done. I'm going to try to finish it up this year. Thanks to all the fans who have waited patiently for Crozonia #4.

- Storm Hawks / Nerd Corps Entertainment will be at Fan Expo Canada! More info to come shortly.

- I will be at Chicago Comic Con (Formerly Wizard World) August 6-8. I will be selling the Storm Hawks Special Edition, Crozonia, and The Art of ReBoot. I will also be sketching and taking on drawing commissions.

- This week is the deadline for ordering the Storm Hawks Special Edition through Diamond. Please go to your local comic book store and order!

- Beach CS and DMF Comics are working on another comic book to be released tentatively in September. To be revealed soon!
