Most of the folks who read this strip aren't going to the American Library Association annual conference this weekend in New Orleans, but a few of you are. And if you are, you've got a chance to purchase one of the handful of copies of Runtime Error I'm bringing along with me. They'll be for sale at the Unshelved booth #1751. Sadly Paul will not be on hand to sign or illustrate them (that's what the preorder is for), but I am certainly willing to try drawing Owen or Desmond. After all, I've done it before.

The next conference appearance of our book will be in July at Comic Con International in San Diego. Also without Paul. Does Paul really exist? No one knows for sure.
