Today was most probably the best day of my existence! I launched my first self-published comic, my memoir fantasy PRINCESS WITCH BOY at the Alternative Press Expo here in San Francisco! So much to share about APE, Isotope, Dean Haspiel, The Mini Comic Award of Excellence, Prism, Writers Old Fashioned and so much more, but right now I’d like to send out a big ol’ shout to everyone who came out to APE, and/or attended the signing for Dean Haspiel or the APE Aftermath party at Isotope, and/or bought my comic! You know what? Today was the best day ever! (Creating) Art = (Creating) Community = Joy!
This is the cover of Princess Witch Boy, Book One: Gateway. Out titular hero looks at the reader as the spirits of three women float above him. They represent the triple aspects ( shapechanger, supermodel sorceress and djinn) that the boy channels in times of crisis. From left to right we have Galaxy Runway, Velvet and Replica)
Here I am working the Writers Old Fashioned booth while hawking my wares. That’s the lovely Ms. Emily Stackhouse (Brazilianoir) in the background. Photo by Zan!

Posing with Ken Kneisel with our Wuvable Oaf tees on! We’re like twins! Wuvable Oaf is the genius comic by Ed Luce! Yes, you heard me. I said genius. I meant every syllable! And since I’m choosing to spend this Sunday on me instead of Ororo, here’s some random images of the best character I’ve ever named myself after! *laughs*

Olivier Coipel drew this fierce as all get out Storm image!
Doctor Doom has the hots for Storm and uh, Storm might like him, too? Huh?
And just in case you forgot:
Don’t try to fly in the face of facts alone or with friends. Or at all, really. If a mutant goddess can’t do it, what chance do you have? So, instead of wasting time flying in the face of facts, try looking up some facts about the following people, places and things since I don’t have time to create links to all their names. That’s right, dear reader, Google some information on Isotope Comic Book Lounge, Writers Old Fashioned, Alternative Press Expo, Dean Haspiel, Prism, and mini-comics. Stay tuned to stormantic.com and I will let you know how you can order your very own copy of PRINCESS WITCH BOY! Mwah!
