Over the next few days there will be some under-the-hood changes to DelilahDirk.com. Since the story of The Turkish Lieutenant is complete and doesn’t need to be updated every week, I’ll be disabling WordPress and presenting the comic with plain ol’ static HTML pages. What does this mean for you? Only that the RSS feed will become inactive, and I won’t be delivering news through that venue. The Turkish Lieutenant will still be easily available.
There are going to be a few notable Delilah Dirk news items in the near future. If you’d like to make sure you get the news as it’s revealed, here are some great options: Newsletter subscribers get to discover all the fun stuff first (subscribe here!). If you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow @delilahdirk. You can stay tuned to my Tumblr either by following me there or subscribing to its RSS feed. There’s also the Facebook page. Let’s connect – it’s great to hear from you guys!
SDCC takes place from July 12-15th this year, and I’ll be down there with copies of Seeds of Good Fortune and prints a-plenty! I’ll be dedicating copies of Seeds as usual, so if you don’t already have a copy then come get yours. You’ll be able to find me at the Bolt City booth with my good ol’ Flight-Anthology captain Kazu Kibuishi (along with fellow Flight chums Scott C, Johane Matte, Michel Gagne, and Jorge Cham). You’ll also be able to find Seeds and prints at this year’s Tr!ckster event, which you should definitely be visiting.
So come on by – every year I look forward to meeting all the excellent people who come to say Hi at SDCC, so be sure to put our booth on your list of places to stop. I don’t know the specific booth number yet, but I will post the information on Twitter, Facebook, and on my Tumblr when I can. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
If you’re new to Delilah Dirk, be sure to read The Turkish Lieutenant, available through the links to the left (or just click here to start from the beginning)!
Already enjoyed The Turkish Lieutenant, or just in the mood for a good stand-alone, nicely-printed comic? The first new Delilah Dirk story since the conclusion of Lieutenant, The Seeds of Good Fortune is a complete, self-contained adventure, and it’s available to be shipped right to your door.
The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is this weekend – May 26th and 27th at the Yaletown Roundhouse! This is the very first VanCAF and I’m proud to be exhibiting on home turf. I’ll have copies of Seeds, I’ll have both of these prints there, and I’ll have a few prints of this non-Delilah-related favourite (Dinosaurs riding other dinosaurs!). Apparently that last image was the card-to-get at last month’s Carded! show, and now you can enjoy it full-size! For ever, if you like!
At TCAF I sold through every single thing I brought. Fortunately, since I operate this brouhaha from Vancouver, I’ll have significantly more copies at my disposal, so come by and buy ten of everything! In fact, here’s a challenge: online orders for Seeds have been primarily coming from the United States, so Vancouverites I urge you to get out this weekend and come represent for your country! Toronto did its part… you wouldn’t want to compare unfavourably to Toronto, would you Vancouver?
Full VanCAF details are right here.
I’m slowly but surely signing my way through prints and copies of Seeds. If you placed your order between the 7th and 15th of May, your order should be winging its way to you as you read this. It really has been very exciting to see so many orders from all the different corners of the globe – I’ve sent comics off to Finland, Australia, Italy, Singapore, Bulgaria, and (yay!) Turkey, among many others. Truly the internet is a marvellous thing.
