Though, really, all the credit goes to Ron Chan, Cat Ellis, and Dylan Meconis, the illustrators of, respectively:
Flytrap: Episode Three: Over the Wall: The story behind Bishop’s first tattoo.
Einbahnstrasse Waltz: High school orchestra trip to Vienna. Gin and tonic, marzipan, angst. A standalone story.
and Click: A snapshot of Battle’s senior year in high school, between Empress and Rules. Let’s just say she won’t be going to any reunions.
All three will debut at Comic-Con and shortly thereafter make their way onto ComicSpace. Needless to say, I am thrilled!
And about Comic-Con: again, I’ll be there Friday through Sunday. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to find me some of the time in ArtistÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Alley at table II-03, and on Sunday on this panel:
11:30-1:00 Comics Are Not LiteratureÃ¢â‚¬â€For years, comics have presented themselves as a new kind of literatureÃ¢â‚¬â€but cartooning isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t prose, and graphic novels arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t novels. What if conflating comics with Ã¢â‚¬Å“literaryÃ¢â‚¬Â storytelling is a terrible mistake? Douglas Wolk (Reading Comics) moderates what should be a contentious discussion with Cecil Castellucci (The PLAIN Janes), Dan Nadel (PictureBox Inc.), Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible), Paul Tobin (Spider-Man Family), and Sara Ryan (The Rules for Hearts). Room 8
Over and out. Time will tell if I can post anything from the show…

not yet, but it will be. its continuity in the empress-verse, btw, is that it’s nic’s orchestra, but she’s not on the trip because she was at the siegel institute that summer. :)
