Welcome to my BLOG. I post my weekly comic strips here and other articles about comics and cartooning, mostly. There's some miscellaneous pictures in the earlier posts. My "business card" website is RELIABLECOMICS.COM. I also operate GLUYASWILLIAMS.COM. Look around.

San Diego Comic-Con Int'l
Beginning this Wednesday night through Sunday evening I will be at San Diego's Comic-Con International. In addition to the continued availablility of the Danny Dutch Comic Book, I have this brand new comic ready to go, The Shortest Interval. I'll be working the crowds at the Sparkplug Comics Books booth (1531) with my pals Dylan Williams, Tom Neely, Chris Cilla, Julia Wertz, Tim Goodyear, Austin English, Damien Jay, Ben Catmull, Minty Lewis, Andrew Smith and maybe more!
Sparkplug's got two other new books, too: Sausage Hand by Andrew Smith and Neptune by Aaron Nels Steinke. All three new books will also be for sale at the Sparkplug table at the Portland Zine Symposium this selfsame weekend!!?! Get the lowdown on the books and shows here. All the new comics should also be for sale on the Sparkplug website sometime soon.
Oh, one more thing: a few of us are going to try to post exciting blog entries during the San Diego show at the highly experimental Funny Town Humor Pump blog. Add it to your feed reader and find out how we're feeling this very second.
I will see you there!

I came across a new blog the other day, Quality In Print, that has lots of info on professional printing, of course. There's a lot of stuff about the business of printing and calibrating your workflow and saving ink and stuff like that that I don't know anything about, but there's also lots of useful info that people like me and you who make comic books can learn and use to do a better job and get better looking printed books. Specifically, check out these five posts on dot gain that I found very interesting, and another five about LPI and DPI. Even if you only make mini-comics on the sly at work, this stuff is good if one day you hit the "big time" and it's also interesting if you are a production nerd like Sparkplug Comics' Dylan Williams.
