Before we get too far into the blog for this week's comic, it might be worthwhile for some of you to revisit the flashback arc that established Jimmy and Charlie's relationship. Also, their untimely split. Check out where things all started to go wrong for them by clicking here.

I know that this week's comic is egregiously late. That's due to a confluence of personal obstacles and me also preparing for THIS:

Emerald City Comiccon

If you are in the Seattle area, please do not forget that I will be exhibiting at Emerald City Comicon this weekend, Friday, March 31 through Sunday April 1. I'll be hanging out at booth #307 with Gordon McAlpin from Multiplex and Angela Melick from Wasted Talent.

I'm both nervous and excited to go to this show. Excited because I know from first-hand experience how awesome the audience is that comes to this show and how appreciative they are of webcomics. Nervous because figuring out how to ship my merchandise and my own stinking carcass to Seattle has been a logistical nightmare. I've basically been second-guessing myself for three weeks.

Now if I can only figure out how to get the weight of my checked bag under 50 pounds...

Something else I'll mention: If you're thinking about buying anything from the store in the near future - ESPECIALLY T-SHIRTS - I want to encourage you to place your orders now.

Part of the reason behind my aggressive convention schedule this year is that I want to sell as much of my Theater Hopper merchandise as possible. I was going through my inventory as I packed for Emerald City and I'm starting to notice a dwindling supply of some shirts in popular sizes.

Since I'm going to Emerald City this weekend, C2E2 in Chicago two weeks after that and Minneapolis SpringCon a month after that, it's very possible that I will not have the style of shirt you want in the size you want when it's all over.

I DO NOT INTEND TO REORDER SHIRTS. ONCE THEY'RE GONE, THEY'RE GONE.

I am currently offering a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" offer on all shirts and books. Previously, it was buy two shirts or buy two books. But yesterday I COMBINED the offer so you can mix and match items. Buy ANY two books or shirts and get the third item for FREE. I can't make it any better than that!

So, like I said, if you think you want some Theater Hopper merchandise, I would strongly encourage you to make a purchase soon so I don't sell what you hoped to buy at a convention somewhere.

That's all I have for now. Next week's comic will probably be a little late as well due to Emerald City, but hopefully it won't be as late as this one was.

Thanks for your patience. SEATTLE, HERE I COME!

I appreciate your new-found maturity. But I want you to know you're not totally to blame for our break-up, Jimmy.

I loved you, Jimmy. Never doubt that. But after you proposed, things started moving so fast!...

I knew your reputation from before and when I saw you kissing that girl in the lobby - for whatever reason - I used that as my excuse to RUN.

I left you, Jimmy...

...because I was scared to commit!
