So there's some stuff coming up that VARIOUS FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES are doing, and it seemed prudent to mention a couple of them here! ;3

First, the always fantastic Tom Warburton, creator of Codename: Kids Next Door, just released his first book! It's called 1000 Times No and while it's meant for small children, it's also just a really great looking book and I am SUPER EXCITED for him! We had lunch last week and I got to see a copy in person, and it looks GORGEOUS -- he fought really hard to get it just how he wanted it and all his persistence paid off.

Because he's an Animation Guy by trade, he put together a promo video for it, including the voices of his son, Parker (aawwwwww!) and Jennifer Hale (who's done a BILLION voices, including Numbuh 86 on C:KND and both June and Avatar Kyoshi on ATLA). You can find out more about how he put it together on his blog, including some of his storyboards!



If you're in the NYC area, Tom will be doing a signing of his book later this month at Books of Wonder! It'll be on Saturday, May 23rd at 2PM -- you can find out more info on it here!

ALSO!!!!

If you're an Avatar fan and you're planning to be at Anime Central this weekend, you should absolutely go to the "Avatar: The Last Airbender, Beginning and Beyond" panel that some of my friends are running! Kevin "Puppetbending" Coppa will be there, as well as Avatar Mom and Zimmay, and [livejournal.com profile] yaytime and I maaaaaaaaaay have put together a little sneak preview of the next wave of Avatar comics. And it maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay be a little more elaborate than one would expect. Because we're both ridiculous people. <3







So that's it! PRETTY AWESOME FEW WEEKS, YOU GUYS! GLEE ALL AROUND! :D

Both you and Dave are the best kind of ridiculous people there can be.
Also wish I could be there, if only to see more of Kevin's awesome puppets...and the comic preview you two are cooking up, of course!

Same here, with the Sokka puppet!

If there had been a Zhao puppet, I'd probably be in prison right now for stealing because I KNOW I would have never put it down, ha ha!

Waaah! Wish I could check it out. Seriously want to meet Kevin Coppa and shower him with mad praise for such a fun reinterpretation of the series. Also, yay for comeeeecks.

p.s. The children's book looks positively adorable. Mr. Warburton has such a sweet, funny style.

Dave is, indeed, a good friend of mine for whom I have great affection!

Dave Knowing + Creation of Hot and Awesome Comics And Such = I guess I will friend you now! And then you can...see all the embarrassing LJ entries that I flock....

Also, now I'm curious -- how do you know Dave? (Though I'm used to him and Raina knowing pretty much everyone in the comics community at this point, heh)
