Yesterday, I visited a few of the local comic shops with copies of The Possum in hand. You can now find copies of The Possum on sale at The Silver Snail, The Beguiling, 3rd Quadrant, and Dragon Lady Comics, here in Toronto!! You can also find The Possum on the shelves at The Comic Cave in Brockville, Ontario, and very soon at The Comic Shoppe on Bank st. in Ottawa! Keep checking the links on the right, for other stores to carry The Possum. And always if there is no store near you, I would love to mail you a copy. Just go to the Possum Store via Possum Press.com and order a copy (or two). Thanks to these five fine comic shops for putting this comic on their shelves. If anyone knows of some other indie friendly shops, please let me know. Hopefully I’ll be adding to the list!
I’m packing my bags and taking the ol’ family to Ottawa for the weekend! For those of you who didn’t know, a commercial that I directed for Chuck Gammage Animation has been accepted into this year’s festival. It will be playing in the Short Competition #4, on Saturday, September 23, 3:00 pm (NAC – Southam Hall), and on Sunday, September 24, 11:00 am (Bytowne Cinema). I’ll also be at the Meet The Filmmakers 4, on Sunday, September 24, 9:30 am (Novotel – Cafe Nicole).
The Commercial is called Lion and Zebra (Sport in a Box), and is a public service announcment for United Nations Canada. If you can’t make it to the Festival, and haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here!
If you are going to be in Ottawa, I hope to see you there! I’m going to do my best to attend a few of the other events, such as the Bob Clampett Retrospective. I’d also like to pick up a copy of Amid Amidi’s book Cartoon Modern, at his book signing. I’m looking forward to another fun and busy weekend. It should be good.
